Wednesday’s are for knitting, reading, and Ginny’s Yarn Along.
In the completion column:
I loved Mink River, it was the best book and honestly, I was so sad to finish it. I simply fell in love with the townspeople and I wanted to spend more time with them! It was a book that made me want to move where they are – to be part of that special place. I gave it 5 stars and will absolutely look for more books by Brian Doyle.
Morwenstowe socks – are finished as well! I will absolutely knit them again, however, without the “Princess Sole”. I had some issues with ladders in the purl stitches which resulted in a weird gap in the fabric. I do not think it will be noticeable when worn, but to avoid this problem I will just knit them in stockinette. And, I just love the bird’s-eye heels!
That leaves me to share with you what I am knitting and reading today. I am still working on Pincha and the feathers are slowly growing and I am over halfway through Ann Cleeves White Nights. I expect to be finished with this before the end of the week and waiting in the wings is The Goldfinch.
And, because I don’t have enough WIP’s already – I cast on Carole’s Picot Edge Socks last night and I think I found the trick for sock knitting. Self-striping sock yarn…Seriously, I did not want to stop knitting. I kept telling myself that I would just knit to the next color change and kept knitting until Steve asked when was I going to turn the light out – I was nice, I only knit to the next color and stopped. Really. I did.
And, yes I agree, how weird is it that the colors match so well! I seriously bought these yarns years apart from different retailers!
However, Gentle Reader, there are two things I want to know today: what are your plans for the upcoming weekend and what are you reading next!
P.S. There is still plenty of time to join me in the inaugural knit whatever you want AsKatKnits Summer KAL – you can find all the details here.
