Knitting AND reading this week. I think I have actually done more reading than knitting if you can believe that one. I picked up " The Knitting Sutra" at the library this week. I'm halfway done with it. Years ago I would have finished it by now but, like knitting, I find I have to be relaxed before I can dig into my book.
At the NH Sheep and Wool Festival Lisa picked out a sock yarn she liked and asked me to knit her socks for her birthday. Sounded like an easy plan to me. I'm using the Whiz Bang pattern by Sarah Shoo. You need something a little more fancy for birthday socks for a knitter in my opinion. This is just enough variation but easy enough to memorize. I, of course, changed it up a bit and am doing it cuff down. Her birthday isn't until October so I'm way ahead of schedule. And no, she doesn't read the blog so it should stay a surprise.
What are you reading and knitting these days?
