Knitting News



Maybe you cannot see it, but I am making steady progress on my pink cardigan.  I'm about over half way done with the body of the sweater.  Knitting with cotton is a little slow going for me since there isn't much 'spring' in the yarn.  However, I dedicate time each and every day adding inches.


The gradient shawl in the above photo is my TV knitting which is soft and wonderful to sit, knit and add a few rows during a show.  I'm nearly done with the second section of the pattern and then I'll be doing the border.  So close!


I was delighted this week to pick up the books I reserved with our county traveling library.  It's been forever since I've stepped foot into a bookstore or a library.  Curbside pickup is wonderful!  I also check out the ebook library but many of the books I want have a long wait list.  I'm too impatient I guess.  However, I do place holds every now and then.  I'm excited to do a deep dive into that Tasha Tudor book!


What have you been working on this week?

  1. I'll look forward to hearing about the Tasha Tudor book. I read Educated, but didn't really care for it. I also read Crawdads and liked it, but not to the extent of all the hype. Hope you enjoy them all. I'm knitting on a sock, doing some cross stitch and I need to get back to my Hitchhiker and my Granny Squares. Hitting 90 here today! Too soon....

  2. Guessing you are in the yellow zone. We are still red and the library is closed. I sure do miss the library. I got an email saying it will open back up for patrons in mid-July.

  3. I love your shades of pink! Our libraries are not yet open and with no date projected, so I sure do miss them. But you've got a very nice mix of books there and I hope you enjoy them!

  6. You have no idea of the memories you just brought back to me. My mom was a HUGE Tasha Tudor fan and had several original water colors and numerous autographed books. I think I learned to read sitting in Mom's lap while she/we read Tasha Tudor books.

  7. How lovely to get new library books. I haven't even checked to see if ours is open again.....Your cardigan definitely looks like it has grown, I am sure it will be off the needles before too long!

  8. I haven't been doing a lot of reading so I must admit I don't even know if our libraries are opening. Loving the great progress you are making on your pink projects.

  9. What a nice list of books. I found Educated fascinating, especially after I watched a video of the author being interviewed on video. I would read the book first though. Tasha Tudor has always intrigued me and I haven't thought of her for a number of year. The pinks are so pretty. For the record, I can see quite a bit of progress on the sweater.

  10. I hear you about the cotton yarn. I realized this week that I've been knitting cotton for weeks, and exclusively cotton for most of May. It felt really good to start a WOOL sweater today.

  11. Haven't tried curbside but am tempted. I've been getting a bit wishy washy with books of late.
