I am joining Ginny for her weekly Yarn Along. Rather inspirational to see what others are reading and knitting. I, for one, always come away with a few more books I really want to read and patterns I want to knit!
Ah, progress...not very great progress on my February Lady Sweater, but I am not a very fast knitter (at least not on lace patterns!) and some evenings I only manage 2-4 rows. But it is looking rather nice, if I do say so myself. Of course, posting this photo, I noticed the ugly mistake, just above the needles. Ugh. To heck with it; I am not backing up on this thing that many rows no matter what! I will wear it in all humility.
It feels good to have an excuse to put this big project aside in order to work on something really tiny and simple. I am trying to knit a few things for Gemma's favorite doll. As close to instant gratification as one can come in knitting.
As for reading, it is very much like my FLS...I am still going through The Two Towers a few pages a night. Surely Tolkien wrote the thing more quickly than I am reading it! At the moment, I am also perusing this again, a perennial favorite (no pun intended). I realized that the clothing patterns/instructions may work for Gemma's doll as well.
I thought I would include Bret's reading. I want to read it myself, one of these days. Bret has been reading it in bed at night, chuckling away beside me, but he won't read any of it aloud to me!
That's it for my Yarn Along this week. Perhaps I'll have finished at least the doll sweater by next week!
