I am savoring every stitch of this shawl! I've discovered the magic and delight of short row shaping. It's dead simple, mindless for me and quite fun. While knitting this shawl I'm already thinking of a purple and gray one. Who knew garter stitch could be so engaging? I also finished the pair of socks for my son, I was disappointed overall with the amount of yardage in each skein (skimpy!) and had to dig through my sock yarn stash to finish the toes. I know he will not mind, but I sure did.
Little Women is still my major read and I do enjoy it so, but it's a book that cannot be skimmed. So I'm slowly reading each evening. I think I'll start reading an hour or so during the day when I'm awake and alert. Overall, I remember most of the story line, but their are bits and pieces that have skipped my memory, so it's nice to read through again as a seasoned (old) adult. One attribute I did notice is the foreshadowing of poor Beth..totally missed my radar when I was a young green reader. In case you haven't read the book, I'll be evasive.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
