Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? ~ Ginny from Small Things
My reading really has been suffering, which means I’m still on the same book Isolde, Queen of the Western Isle by Rosalind Miles. I guess I’ve been enjoying too many other projects, including working out in my yard. This week I’ve added two more books to take a look at, both by the Royal School of Needlework. The first is Blackwork by Becky Hogg and the second is Crewelwork by Jacqui McDonald. I have plans for making a pillow cover in crewel this summer and I can’t wait to get started.
I finished my modified version of the Shizuku scarf by Angela Tong. Due to yardage constraints with my handspun, I ended up with a scarf version measuring 4″ at the widest point by 55″ in length. It was a fun knit that really was super quick. I will make another one that is the full version! I decided it was time to work on a much neglected WIP, my Cable Lagoon socks. This WIP was destined to be for the Ravellenic 2012 Games for TeamYoss2012 of the Year of Stash Socks, but I decided I wanted to work on them before this even started.
Happy knitting and reading!
