Knitting


On the needles this week is a sock, the first of a pair.  I am knitting these for my mum for her birthday.  She could knit a pair for herself but she really wanted a pair knitted by me, apparently she keeps borrowing the pair I knitted my dad for Christmas!  I feel really honoured that she has ask me to make them.  I was not sure about the colours of this yarn at first, and am still not totally sure but it is the one my mum chose, I do hope she likes them.

Reading wise I am continuing with the same book as last week.  It is a compelling read and continues to hold my attention such that I am finding many ways to create time to read a few pages!  I mentioned last week that I had recently finished a book.  I enjoyed it so much I have shared my thoughts here.

Joining in with Tami for sharing of this weeks work in progress and Ginny for this weeks sharing of knitting and reading.

What are you knitting and / or reading this week?

  2. You always seem to find the most interesting colour sock yarn, I especially like this one.
    A friend asked me to knit him a cable fisherman sweater a few days ago, I was quite flattered but would have preferred he'd asked for something smaller!!

  9. Your socks look lovely in answer to your question, the row an 4ply is super soft, very nice for something for a little one. Also, I just ad a little look around your blog and it is great, I'm a follower now. Your not in Cornwall, uk by any chance are you? I just noticed your lack of snow! Any way, we are!
