Yarn Along and a Shawl
I've started yet another project. My justifications are simple, while my daughter was home I went through my extensive shawl, scarf and cowl collection and gave her the ones that I wear infrequently. We both agree that one way to add life to a wardrobe is with accessories. Some I gave freely and some I said "you are borrowing this one". Whether she owns them on not, I declared that I will tend to their washing.
Anyways, this shawl is the Pendulum Shawl and the pattern is quite easy, as in TV watching easy. Well TV watching that talks a lot. If you are watching an action movie you're better off not knitting at all. For wool, I chose Malabrigo Sock-so decadent to handle :) My ravelry notes are here.
Yesterday I posted about my finished hat which I cannot wait to wear. In our front yard the maple leaves are starting to drop, so I know hat wearing weather is just around the corner.
My favorite aunt lent me the book I'm reading quite a bit ago. I thought I'd read it so I can return it to her when I see her in the fall sometime. I've just started and have no opinions as of yet. I feel like I'm in a reading lull at the moment. I didn't enjoy Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman and that saddens me.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
