Knitting News and a Hat
I've made significant progress on my sister's sweater. She is an awesome sister so she deserves a sweater, right? Right. I am one third of the way done. How do I know? Well the sweater uses three skeins of Madeline Tosh Sock and I've used up the first skein. I love simple maths...
I've made this sweater many times, my latest is this one. My sister tried it on last summer and fell in love with the fit. So, I decided to cast one on after she chose her yarn.
In other news, I cast on a hat from my own imagination and went with it. I love a folded brim for a hat for some extra warmth and I created a simple knit two, purl two design broken by a purl row. Easy peasy.
In reading news, I'm still involved with the sixth Gamache book by Louise Penny, Bury your Dead. I could finish it today if I focused and didn't do anything else, like cook a dinner. I have Beartown sitting and staring at me waiting for me to dive in. I am excited to read this novel!
Also in the reading line up is Anne Lamott's Hallelujah Anyway. She makes me smile and laugh and believe in people and the strength of faith.
What are you reading and knitting this week?
