Currently on the Needles
I started another baby sweater using the same pattern that I always use, Elizabeth Zimmermann's February Baby Sweater. I love this pattern and yet I flub up the beginning every single time. I guess I am a little challenged at times. This lovely photo of my sweater beginnings was ripped out and started all over again last night.
I need to read the directions carefully!
My reading is the same and I knew the books would be photographed a third week in a row, so I decided to show you the new Taproot magazine. This magazine gets better as each issue is printed. If you have a chance, you should give it a flip through.
So, my books not in the photo continue along splendidly - The Lake House by Kate Morton and The Once and Future King by T. H. White. I'm enjoying both of them and my progress has been minimal this week. I need to step it up!
What are you knitting and reading this week?

I love that EZ baby sweater pattern too! I've not tried Taproot magazine yet, though I've been wanting to. Perhaps it's time to order an issue.ReplyDelete
I have never knit the EZ Baby Sweater and want to give it a go, there are a lot of babies making their way into the world lately ;)ReplyDelete
I agree, Taproot just gets better and better.
It seems we must make some knitting mistakes many times before we learn, maybe like life? Mine is M1R and M1L; I just can't get them right the first time. That is a lovely pink!ReplyDelete
What? an EZ I haven't knit??? And I'm in 'baby' mode around here....must look this one up!!! Thanks!!ReplyDelete
Indian summers is amazing. I just want to binge on it and knit. Why must I do other things? Good luck with sweater take two.ReplyDelete
My go to baby sweater is EZ's BSJ which likewise requires attention when you start. I have likewise ripped back more than once! I love Taproot and should absolutely renew my lapsed subscription, thank you for the reminder!ReplyDelete
I'm like you --- enormously enjoying the book I am reading (My Southern Journey), but not making quick progress.ReplyDelete
Taproot looks like a very interesting magazine. I'll have to see if I can find it at the bookstore.
Happy knitting (and reading)!
I really enjoyed Taproot. However, it took me so long to get to them that I did not renew my subscription! (BOOOO!)ReplyDelete
Love that pattern so practical and cute...not to mention that sweet color.ReplyDelete
I have knit the February Lady sweater and that was such a nice knit, enjoy :)ReplyDelete
Love the sweet pink yarn.ReplyDelete
The pink yarn looks wonderful. I haven't come across the magazine before I must take a look.ReplyDelete
Is that pattern in the almanac?ReplyDelete
Karen, I am in Squam and wishing that someday you will join me! I am in a cabin with four other women and we are all sitting around the fire knitting. 😊 I brought my three year old unfinished sweater project and my roomies helped me get back on track. I've brought Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver with me and am enjoying it!ReplyDelete
That will be a sweet baby sweater. Ooh, the possibilities of buttons for that project! I like your acorn mug rug.ReplyDelete
Quick progress or not, I'm glad you are enjoying the reading. That yarn looks to be a fantastic baby sweater I'm sure :)ReplyDelete
