Currently on the Needles
I bought both of these books over the weekend and I started both as well. This is unusual since I take some time to get around to starting books (I have quite the "to read" pile in my bedroom). I'm reading The Lake House in the evening and while I'm cooking dinner I read a few pages of The Once and Future King. I'm excited about both reads but have no opinions as of yet.
My Leaf Cowl is almost done! What a delightful pattern that knits up quickly and is pretty. I just might cast on another one for the gift pile. Also I started Silverleaf shawl to join in a lovely Knitalong started my the wonderful Tracey at Clover blog. Care to join? Please do. Also we are keeping up with our projects on Instagram.
If you missed the post, I finished my Antarktis Shawl and posted here
What are you knitting and reading this week?
Joining Ginny and Frontier Dreams
Kate Morton is always a good read. Your leaf cowl is quite pretty.ReplyDelete
The Once and Future King is fantastic! I love the leaves cowl. Gorgeous. If you already have Christmas gifts completed I'm totally jealous. ;-)ReplyDelete
I saw the silverleaf shawl on Tracey's blog. I think I am going to join the KAL. My knitting mojo is almost gone in the midst of 11 hour days at work and remodeling projects in the evening. But I need some knitting time!ReplyDelete
I love all the leaves in your knitting, and the yarn you've chosen for your Silverleaf is gorgeous! I've started The Lake House several times but have never gotten very far, but really enjoyed The Once and Future King.ReplyDelete
This brown yarn is fantastic! Such gorgeous perfect for fall color!ReplyDelete
That cowl is perfect for fall - now in my revelry library! I read "Once and Future King" ages ago and remember staying up way too late because it was so good. Look forward to reading what you think about it.ReplyDelete
Your leaf cowl is beautiful!ReplyDelete
Your cowl is gorgeous! I don't need any more distractions but I think I need to add that to my queue :)ReplyDelete
Your cowl is so pretty! You'll have to let us know how the Lake House is.ReplyDelete
I've wanted to reread the once and future king ever since finishing h is for hawk....too many books, too little time!!! I went on a Kate Morton kick a few years ago and I think I read Lake House....obviously needs a reread, too...since I don't remember a thing about it. Oh, the joys of growing old!!!ReplyDelete
I love that cowl, it is beautiful! And, The Lake House is a book I have wanted to read - maybe I will have to queue it up!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness- it is beautiful! And the beautiful lilac color too. Every time I see the Once and Future King in someone's book pile, I tell myself I need to read it, it looks so interesting...and then...I forget. Until I see it in someone's pile again. Note to self. :DReplyDelete
I do love the color yarn you are using for your Silverleaf, very pretty.ReplyDelete
And your cowl? Now I want one in that color too!
Both books look really good. The Silverleaf is going to be beautiful and I can't wait to see how it turns out in this color. So fallish! :) I love fall! ;)ReplyDelete
I loved Once & Future King & have read it several times. I'm a big fan of anything King Arthur. I also LOVE your Antarktis. That green yarn is just so gorgeous!ReplyDelete
The brownish yarn for your shawl is really beautiful. I look forward to seeing this one come along.ReplyDelete
Love both of the projects you are doing. Now you made my Ravelry library a bit larger.ReplyDelete
I read Lake House and enjoyed it, hope you do too!
Love Kate Morton's books! Very pretty shawl, and I like the cowl, too. I'm reading Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods, our next book club book and working on a sweater I started a long time ago.ReplyDelete
It is always good to be excited about what you're reading and what you're knitting. I need to start Nora Roberts' The Obsession. I've been busy working on the husband's sock and my brother's Christmas one.ReplyDelete
beautiful work as always my friend!ReplyDelete
the weather has become a little warmer than usual this side of the world and the boys school activities are keeping this very slow moving mama very busy of late. but, with that being said i did manage to knit up a square... *chuckle*... and then turn it into a bunny - for the belly... and the change of season! hee hee :D
I read The Lake House over the summer and enjoyed it. Like you I have a large pile of books by my bedside! 😊 I can't resist them! I'm currently reading Produgal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver. Have you read it?ReplyDelete
