~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs...~ following along with Ginny's weekly postings.
Right now I have three projects on my needles. A pair of socks I started last night, a shawl, and a tunic sweater for Reagan. As I was drifting off to sleep the tunic was plauging my thoughts. I think I need to frog it. The yarn, one of my all time favorites, Marr Haven, is just not right for this. Plus, I'm trying to use of some scraps of dyed colorways in Marr Haven and I'm not feeling the colors. So I think I need to rip it out. Reagan asked me to make him something for spring to wear and I like this pattern but I can't decide if he'll wear it enough before it is too warm out. This yarn might be too warm.
I'm reading my third Yarn Harlot book, Things I've Learned From Knitting, and of course enjoying it well. As much as I like long, detailed books, these short almost essay like books are nice for the bits of reading time I can steal in my day. My boys and I continue to read the Magic Tree House books and it is fun to see them remember what happened books past and how they use pictures to predict what will happen next. I'm also working through Knitting Socks to teach myself how to make them. I made a pair of 4 sts per inch super thick sock and really liked it. Now that I'm making a pair with 7 sts per inch, I'm a bit intimidated!
