I am joining in with Ginny for this weeks sharing of knitting and reading Tami for this weeks sharing of work in progress.
This week I am busy trying to finish off a dress I am knitting for my youngest for Christmas. As I am knitting this in the evening only it is progressing in fits and starts. I would like to complete it soon, as I have a few other smaller projects that I would like to knit for both children for Christmas. I am on to the second sleeve which has been slow progress. I got to the end of the increases and realised that I was three stitches short! I had to frog it back almost to the beginning. My youngest has grown since I started knitting this so I hope it still fits her by the time I am finished.
My reading this week has been mostly on gardening. I am planning what I need to do and when using a, new to me, method. I came across biodynamic gardening as a method from a colleague when I used to work. At the time I thought it was a tad bizarre but recently have felt that it probably isn't as mad an idea as I first thought. The little booklet came with this rather colourful year planner.
I have read the booklet and looked at a few websites, there are books on this too but for now I am going to keep it simple. If it is successful then I may read in to it further in the future. I have also been looking at apple trees after spending a wonderful day last week with a local apple expert.
What are you knitting and reading?
