Wow, this has been an amazingly prolific knitting week (must be because we did a 6-hour round-trip road-trip with dh driving and me knitting!). That said, here is what I got accomplished since last week:
|Spring is Blooming baby blanket (30" diameter) - (immediate pdf download $5.00)|
Malcolm's Easy-Peasy, One-Piece One-Button Vest (pattern coming soon)
Hand-dyed Harvest Fingerless Mitts (immediate pdf download $4.00)
Ruby Red Butterfly scarf (pattern coming soon)Cool, huh? But with that much knitting, not so much reading got done. I did finish No He Can't (scariest book I've ever read but a must-read for all voters). Here are the books we're reading this week:
the Lamb book and BBC dvds (got thru MacBeth and Merchant of Venice; this week, we'll do Taming of the Shrew and As You Like It). We're also reading Chasing Vermeer, a great first novel with puzzles and mysteries woven throughout the story ... plus all the rabbit trails for art history!
My reading: I'm still getting up to speed on CSS and HTML and WordPress tech stuff. I'm such a geek ... I LOVE this stuff! I also just started Motherless ... an amazing bioethics novel that grabs you from the get-go! Written with a decidedly active Catholic world-view, this is an interesting story about end-of-life issues. Very good so far.
On the knitting needles: since I just finished the Ruby Red Butterfly last night, I haven't cast on yet. But that little ball of yarn? A blend of cashmere (50%), silk (25%) and merino (25%) in a lovely deep teal color ... yes, I swooned when I got it! (The Ruby Red is made with the same fiber blend ... knits lovely and has GREAT color definition). I've already charted the stitch-pattern for that one ... a cable/lace scarf!
Ginny is a little late posting this week's yarn-along ... but feel free to leave comments below and let me know what's on your needles and on your reading table! And a blessed and happy Easter to one and all.
