Wednesday’s are for knitting and reading…sometimes

Wednesday’s are for knitting and reading…sometimes

This week started off deceptively slowly, however today I feel like I am chasing the snowball downhill and I am never going to catch it before it crashes into the weekend!

But, as it is I will try to grab a few minutes today to knit a bit more on my Morwenstowe Socks – maybe just a row or two. The pattern is the right combination between patterning and mindless knitting and the yarn is so lovely. Thanks Yvonne for the great suggestion!

Why so little you ask?

Well, as you can see, I am reading The Marco Effect by Jussi Adler-Olsen and it is one of those books that is impossible to put down!

Just what my week did not need – an impossible to put down book in a week with a miles long task list!

Thanks to Ginny for hosting Yarn Along, where you can find some really good reads and even better knits! Go look for yourself!

What are you reading this week?

A Day for Knitting and Reading

A Day for Knitting and Reading

It has been a very hectic week thus far, and apparently spring has sprung in the midst of all this busyness. Or, maybe we are skipping spring all together and going directly to summer…

Hello 70°F, nice of you to come visit. (Rumor has it that we will be approaching 80 later today…)

Anyways, today I am joining Ginny in her Yarn Along, hoping to get some serious knitting time and complete the border on this shawl.

Because, Easter…

And, on my list of reading today is The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook, and yes, it is some work reading.

Reading: A Malmö Midwinter: An Inspector Anita Sundström Novella by Torquil MacLeod – it should be a quick read. Should being the operative word. But, I have been falling asleep almost immediately upon getting into bed. This might frustrate me, however, since Insomnia has been on an apparent vacation, I will take the sleep while I can get it!

Knitting (and spinning): I cast on Hop Brook by Bonnie Sennott with some handspun Dorset Down. I am about half way through and I carded the remainder of the fiber to spin this weekend. I am also in the home stretch for Kirsten Kapur’s Mystery Socks – just the toes to go and I will be done!

Up next, a quiet Sunday with some meditation, reading, and knitting.

It’s my time to recharge for the week ahead. My hope is that today will do the same for you. Happy Sunday, Gentle Reader.
