Some days, it feels like this is all I'm reading.
Lesson plans and text books. I sort of have a lot of knitting time on "home days" while supervising and tutoring and checking schoolwork, but I have to put it down so often that I don't get much accomplished.
This gray one is my herringbone cowl that I'm knitting with the recycled sweater. I work on it Friday nights at trivia because I can knit and talk and not mess up the pattern...too much. ;-) I really like the herringbone stitch; it's kind of fun to do.
I'm also working on this cowl with my handspun silk/merino. I said I wasn't very happy with how it spun up (or, how I spun it), because I'm not a fan of thick and thin yarn, but it is very pleasant to knit with! I got a knit stitch pattern book from the library and chose this "fishtail" lace pattern to knit it up with, and I love how it looks. More than that...I love how it feeeeelllls! It is truly soft and scrumptious.
Here, feel it....
The book is Bilbo's Journey. I am enjoying the analysis, but, fair warning, you have to have read The Lord of the Rings, too! It's full of spoilers and assumes that you've read everything which I think is a bit unfortunate for those who
live under a rock haven't seen the movies or been able to get through all the books.
Stop by Ginny's to see all the lovely knits and get some book ideas!
