I have managed to cast off a couple of projects this week. The last pair of Cosy Little Toes and the Purple Jacket this has been blocked and I am now in the slow process of sewing it together I will share pictures when it is compete! The Baby Cardigan I shared last week has stalled. I have completed the body and now need to knit the arms, I had completely forgotten to buy the right size dpns when I bought the yarn. I returned to my local yarn shop at the weekend and they did not have any in stock, they have ordered some in for me which I hope will be in soon. In the meantime I have returned to the cardigan I am knitting for myself, I have cast on a sleeve and it is knitting up much quicker than the body.
I finished the book I was reading last week, it was a wonderful read in case you want to read it too I will not reveal the ending as it would spoil it. I am reading something completely different this week. Longitude by Dava Sobel is about the quest to measure longitude (the vertical lines that meet at the poles) to enable sailors to accurately measure their position. It is hard in this day and age to imagine a time when this could not be measured. I have only just started the book so have yet to find out how this was eventually achieved.
Joining in with Tami for this weeks work in progress and Ginny for this weeks sharing of knitting and reading.
