~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link at Ginny's to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
I've been working on these two projects that don't seem to grow very fast. I'm finally down to the last dozen rows on the Color Affection ^ ! Yay! I asked a friend yesterday morning what I should give our piano teacher of 15+ years as a parting gift, and she suggested that I knit her something. I had thought of that, but didn't have any good ideas as to what would knit up quickly. After looking through my Ravelry favorites, I thought I could find something, and decided to quickly wrap up that Color Affection and use the leftover yarn (of which, you may recall, I have plenty since I had to order more!).
All those miles on the CA yesterday ended up giving me a knitting injury! Boo! My right hand is swollen and achey and the 2 smallest fingers don't unfold properly. Sleeping last night was difficult, and, evidently, my hand doesn't like typing, either. :-(
So.....I guess I won't be knitting much for at least a week, and with graduation looming, I probably won't knit until that is over and my hand is well-healed. And I guess I won't be giving a hand-knit gift to the piano teacher....Got any ideas for me? I probably won't have a Yarn Along post in the coming weeks, but I'll be sure to stop by and see what everyone else is doing. I get such good book & project ideas from the Yarn Along!
At least not knitting gives me more time for reading! Ice and The Little Oratory are calling my name.
