Howdy. It's that time again. Wednesday....knitting day :)
I'm joining in with all the great knitters out there and sharing what
I have been working on and reading.
First of all, speaking of reading.
I FINALLY finished Cutting for Stone. Normally I devour a book and finish it
within a week. But this book lingered and took me a while to get through.
After 2 months of reading I finished it. WOW.
What a book. It will stay with me for a very long time.
So onto what I'm knitting and reading now....
I whipped up this little toddler hat to sell in our farm store.
It's a mix of tan baby alpaca and alpaca sock yarn.
I bought this sock yarn years ago in my favorite yarn store in Saratoga, NY.
I realized after buying it that I love sock yarn when it's in a skein, but not
a fan of the striping once I start knitting.
I did realize however that if I knit and add a solid stripe between the rows, I love it.
I am also knitting a new Grey Loop.
Great pattern. It has just enough changes to keep me happy.
It has a nice mix of eyelet sections, stockinette and purl sections.
I started reading The Orchard: A Memoir by Theresa Weir.
So far so good. I needed to read a short book after my marathon book!
Chase says hello :)
Where is my baby going????
