From Small Things: Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?
Dang it. Each week I hope to be able to share that I have finished the knitting on this green sweater. How can it be that I was once so excited about this project, and now I can hardly stand to look at it? I love the yarn and the pattern, but knitting it has become so tedious. I worked on it for a couple of hours last night and am relieved to say I have reached the armhole and neckline decreases! It won’t be long now. In fact, it’s probably time to start thinking about how to seam this sweater up. This is my first knit-in-pieces sweater, and I have been looking at different methods of seaming the arms and body. What are your favorite methods?
PB received these charming little books for her birthday: Little Pea, Little Hoot, and Little Oink. The illustrations are whimsical and sweet, and the stories can’t be beat. In Little Pea, the storyteller is bemoaning the fact hat he has to eat sweets for dinner before he can have vegetables. Little Hoot just wants to go to bed early like his friends; Little Oink doesn’t want to be a messy pig and craves order instead. Very fun and cute.
As for me, I’m on the last few pages of last week’s book, Unearthly, and am starting to think about what to read next. As with knitting, I find coming to the end of a book exciting, and enjoy anticipating and planning what my next read will be. While I have a nightstand full of unread books, I’m still always looking for ideas and suggestions. hint, hint.
