On My Needles
I have many projects to share with you today. First off are my simple socks on the left. They are for my husband and I'm on the second one. I knit these socks while watching programs that require little attention to the pattern. The bright pink project is my Heart Beets Shawl, I cannot knit and watch anything, you see, I had to UNKNIT two rows and that just about did me in. Learned my lesson, I have the pattern memorized but I have to watch what I'm doing :) Lastly is the Kelp Cardigan, I could knit on this all day long! Love the crisp stitches and the easy raglan shaping. I inserted a simple lace design at each end of the front edges. Last week I finished the Tea and Jam Shawl.
I continue to read Helen Keller's book The Story of my Life. I am amazed at her challenges and her triumphs that she faced. Her story can be interpreted in a series of what she is "missing" but then the way she describes her excursions I wonder if she has experienced life on a deeper level and do we take for granted so many wonderful ordinary events?
What are you knitting and reading?
