I almost have a finished object this week – I bound off this shawl late last night, but it still needs a bit of a spa treatment and a good blocking! Stay tuned for glamour shots next week!
But that means – I can cast on something new! And, cast on I did! – although I am not far, I have begun a new project! I also will be winding some yarn to cast on a pair of Non-Euclidean Stripey Socks!
Ahh, the joy of starting new knitting projects – is there anything better? Okay, maybe new sewing projects might be as good! And, I have some sewing projects that I hope to work on this week as well!
Now, how about some reading updates!
I did manage to finish one book this week. It was not a book for bingo, but it was a book that I could not put down once I started it! The River by Peter Heller did live up to the hype – it is well written and very fast-paced – 4 stars and I recommend if you are looking for a quick summer thriller!
I am more than halfway through War and Peace and, believe it or not, I am still loving this epic tome!
If you wrote a post to share, please leave your link below – and thank you!
I am so excited to see your socks take shape!
Can’t wait to see the shawl in all its glory! And that looks like an interesting sock pattern – am curious about the heel, so let us know please.
there is nothing better than casting on a new project! I love the newness of it all. Can’t wait to see your finished project too.
Looking forward to seeing your shawl in all of its golden glory, more of that sweater (the cast on colors look intriguing) and those interesting socks. Things are looking good in your knitting and reading worlds!
I devoured The River too! Congrats on a finished project
Oh, I can’t wait to see that shawl! Those socks are cool, and I’m looking forward to seeing those underway. War and Peace… impressive! Glad you’re enjoying it.
I started new socks this week, too – hooray! And The River just came through for me in Overdrive. Once my Bingo card is finished I can go back to reading whatever i want. 🙂
I’m eager to see all your projects “come to life” in the coming weeks! 🙂 War and Peace is very good — they don’t call them Classics for nothin’ — and I’m so glad you’re enjoying it! XO
I also devoured The River–and wasn’t expecting to like it but gave it 4 stars.
I look forward to the glamour shots of that shawl. And yes, the best project is the next one. Here’s to happy cast ons.
Knit and read on! and Enjoy!
I’ve enjoyed other Peter Heller’s so I better get The River on my list. Looking forward to seeing your upcoming FOs!
