Currently on the Needles
Same book this week I'm afraid. I haven't been reading much because of all the knitting and because of my eyes being tired at the end of the day from the endless drops. I'm hoping that they are getting better!! Next week I see the doctor. Anyways, I'm enjoying my book when I do read it.
My knitting has been productive. I finally did the photo shoot of my pullover and posted yesterday. Thank you for the kind comments and I agree that I'm being picky. I finished all the mitts I wanted to finish and I've started on some more Christmas knitting for December. Super secret knitting so I can't say much. Hopefully over the holiday weekend I'll be starting some more projects that I can talk about.
What are you knitting and reading this week?

I'd been meaning to read this book and finally picked it up when I saw you were reading it. I LOVE it. :)ReplyDelete
love those mitts what great gifts. Oh and your sweater looks so good. I havn't been reading or knitting but plan to pick up the Cobblestone sweater today...I am determined to finish. Hope your eyes continue to improve.ReplyDelete
Love your sweater. I understand how something like that can bug you. Maybe its the sweater type. It looks yummy and warm.ReplyDelete
Yarn waiting is a lovely sight.ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving. Prayers for eye improvement.
That looks awfully pepperminty perfect. :)ReplyDelete
it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in your world (loved all the Fetchings!!!)....and red and white is always a good choice this time of year!!! Happy Elving!ReplyDelete
Red and white! Perfect! :) I hope your eyes keep improving, what a long haul it has been for you!ReplyDelete
My reading tends to suffer while I'm in knitting mode. I'm working on lots of stockinette so I should be able to do both at the same time. Have a great Thanksgiving Karen!ReplyDelete
I am not managing a lot of reading either, I seem to be busy with other things. I am intrigued to find out what you are knitting next....ReplyDelete
Hope you have a lovely thanksgiving. The yarn above looks so festive! The mitt pattern is super cute! I want to try mitts and hats as soon as I get a few more gifts finished.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful color combo!ReplyDelete
Lovely colour combination, intrigued to know what you are making ;)ReplyDelete
Just checked out your sweater -- it looks awesome! I'm intrigued about your new knitting project -- is that an i-cord tail? I've been meaning to read "All the Light We Cannot See" for over a year! Hope you're enjoying it. :)ReplyDelete
Happy Thanksgiving! Good luck with the Super Secret. I wish my family would sleep more so I could make more knitting progress.ReplyDelete
Red and white...how perfect for this time of year :) Happy knitting Karen.ReplyDelete
Hope the eyeballs feel better soon. I too am working on lots of projects for Christmas. I really have to stop visiting inspiring blogs that give me way TOO many ideas. :-) "Get finished what you have started zAzA" LOLReplyDelete
Have a lovely Holiday weekend -----
That book is on my "to read" list. I am knitting a baby sweater - "Sail Away With Me" and a pair of mitts "Rockywold" that will be a gift, when they are finished. Of all things, I am trying to read "The House of Seven Gables" but it is slow going.ReplyDelete
Just finished reading Orchard House, and am knitting a hat and mittens. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Glad you're giving your eyes a rest, my friend... Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Since you asked, I've cast on a last minute beanie for the son-in-law over in Scotland. The package needs to go out on Monday to get there in time, so I shouldn't have any trouble (worsted and US 7s).
Wishing your eyes good restReplyDelete
Rest your eyes Karen and take good care. Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Hope your eyes feel better soon!!ReplyDelete
Ooh lovely yarn colours. Hope you're on the mend! :)ReplyDelete
I really do hope your eyes are getting better. I've been praying for you.ReplyDelete
This week, I decided to throw together a quick scarf for my son. He chews on his neck ware during the cod months so we need more than one neckwarmer. They get pretty nasty. LOL! Reading wise, I've been delving deep in my herbal studies lessons and learning all about the alimentary system. Fascinating stuff!
That red yarn is divine... Love the deepness of the color.
mm looks like a festive colourway! Take care of your eyes!ReplyDelete
I forgot to comment in two posts ago that man, you sure cranked out those mitts! They will be great gifts. I gave out fingerless mitts last year to my SIL and little sister. I paired them with nail polish and good, hand cream.ReplyDelete
