Wow. What a start to the new year. If 2012 went out like a lamb, 2013 has come in like a lion. Lots of stress, angst, responsibilities, new friendship, fiber, group agendas (and did I mention responsibility?) — so far it has been a roller-coaster.
Good Morning Everyone!
I LOVE to knit and read. Unfortunately I find myself incapable of holding a book with two hands while knitting so I listen to audiobooks…
The last few days I’ve paired my knitting projects with separate books. In the evenings, my wife R and I listen to the A Song of Ice and Fire series and right now we’re in book 3, A Storm of Swords. I’ve paired this bleak and dramatic book with the scarf I’m currently knitting:
This is the first scarf I’ve ever made with a built in I-Cord edging and I’m really enjoying the result! Unfortunately this gray does not photograph well…
When I work alone, I’ve been listening to the Beatrix Potter series by Susan Wittig Albert. Currently I’m listening to the first book, The Tale of Hilltop Farm. I’ve paired this lively tale with a more lively (even if it’s a more mindless work) project in a beautiful spring color. Last fall, I shelved this project to begin some commissioned works, but I’m down to the last ball on the center of this baby blanket. 🙂 YAY!!!
I must admit though that it looks like I’ve got longer to go than I can expect yarn to last… Am anxious to get through this last ball and see if it’ll stretch!
