For the past few weeks, I've been craving simplistic knits and so I cast on a cowl and a blanket to satisfy my craving. Now I am wishing for a complicated knit and have been searching Ravelry for some ideas and inspirations. So far I haven't found THE knit, but you know I will.
I haven't been able to knit as much as I usually do because of my back strain from last Monday, but I'm pleased to report I'm feeling so much better and each day I can knit a little longer than the day before. I missed knitting!
My son's blanket is slowing growing, this is my evening knit while watching TV with my husband. The pattern is super easy!
My peace cowl is making steady progress as well.
I've been reading Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine which is captivating. I continue to read How The Light Gets In by Louise Penny on my Kindle while on the treadmill at the gym. I'm tempted to read this while not on a treadmill.
My third book that I'm reading, The Cat Who Came For Christmas, was gifted to me a week or so after Holly was rescued in early December. My piano tuner guy who is in over 80 years old was tuning my piano (a yearly occurrence) a week after we rescued Holly. He loved the Holly rescue story as much as I loved telling him. Imagine my surprise when I received a copy of this book in the mail from him. How thoughtful! Since I'm sad about the heat wave, I thought a Christmas themed book in July would be fun.
What are you knitting and reading?
