Knitting

I am joining in with Ginny for this weeks sharing of knitting and reading and Tamis work in progress.


This week on the needles I have my third pair of socks.  I am starting to love the pattern that is emerging from this yarn.  After the first few rows they looked like they were going to be a  camouflage pattern, they are for my Dad this pair and he would not have liked that in a sock!  I have finished the hat that I started last week, it looks great I hope dh likes it.

I have been reading The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark this week.  I was tempted to revisit this classic, I first read it as a teenager I know as I have dated the book, after hearing a lovely programme about it on the radio recently.  It is a short book, 125 pages, so hopefully it will only take me a day or two.  I cannot remember what I made of this book as teenager but I am thoroughly enjoying it second time round.

What are you knitting and reading this week?

  2. Nice sock yarn, I'm always amazed that a ball of stripes and colours turn into a pattern like that.

  4. I love the magic of self-striping/patterning yarn and not quite knowing how it will be until you get right into the project. Your sock looks great!
