Participating in Ginny's weekly Yarn Along...
On the needles this week are a pair of plain socks on Beaverslide Merino. It is a very yummy and rustic yarn but oh so slow! A little more than 7 sts per inch make it such a long, boring knit. I think I'll need to cast on something else today just to break up the monotony of it.
Reading wise I've got two good reads going on. Made From Scratch is a fun, light read. It just makes me wish for space for fun thing like chickens. I've always wanted chickens and it doesn't help that my boys want farm animals. I'm also reading and rereading and rereading the new Elizabeth Zimmermann publication, Knit One Knit All. She is just so genius. I love how they have some of her art work in the book and the little notecards and scraps of paper she wrote out patterns on. It is like a little glimse at her thought process.
What is in your basket this week?
