Jingle bells, Jingle bells......
Here's a big announcement: I have officially started my holiday knitting. Yep, I was itching to cast on another project yesterday and knew it had better not be for me. I chose Light and Up shawl for its simplistic lines and lovely eyelets and paired the pattern with Shalimar sock yarn from my stash. I loved shopping the stash basket :)
Did you see my finished shawl? I am toe tapping impatient to wear it. For some reason we have a heat wave occurring to snafu my plans. Patience is not one of my virtues. I'm still knitting these socks and my other shawl.
I recently watched the movie Little Women starring Winona Ryder and instantly had an urge to re read the classic. The last time I've read this book was in my teens. While reading, I'm transported to another time and place. I was around 13-14 years old and just discovered how reading could be fun instead of drudgery. After that discovery, I spent a summer on the front porch swing with a glass of iced tea and many many books-along with a pen and paper creating the "list of books read". I was quite proud of that list.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
