Knitting


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

On the needles this week is a project for myself, after months of knitting presents for others it is good to return to knitting for me.  I cast this on in the summer and knitted about half of the back before turning my attention and time to my ever growing list of handmade presents.  It is going to be a jacket when complete, the wool is a deep purple and is on a big cone so it is not a portable project, I will just have to cast on another to take out and about.  One of the projects I completed for Christmas was a dress for my youngest which I blogged about last year.  I have now taken some pictures and shared them here.

Reading wise I have have finished reading the book about the Crusades which was interesting, it has left me feeling that little has changed in the world over the last 800 years.  I am now reading Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne and I am really enjoying it.

What are you knitting and reading this week?
