Good morning! It’s Wednesday! It’s time to catch you up with what I am reading & crafting. I have a lot to share with you this morning!
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? ~
First, let me share a little miscellaneous personal stuff. Hubby turned 40 last week, and we celebrated in style! We saw Heart in concert on Friday night
Now, before I show you Jon’s cake for his birthday party, you need to know that Jon has a few hobbies: collecting hotwheels & matchbox box cars, and Garfield.
Now, onto the wips!
I cast on for these yesterday
They are “fake cable” socks, one of my really old designs that was published in the knitting calendar 6 years ago. I always wanted to go back, add an extra size, rewrite the pattern, get it tech edited & tested, and I’m finally doing that. I worked on the pattern yesterday morning & sent the pattern to one of my tech editors, and now I’m working on a better sample for photos. I’m usually a pretty loose knitter, but my gauge with these is much tighter than normal, so I have to frog the toe & start again with bigger needles. My bad.
I’ve also been working on my log cabin afghan, which my ravelry notes show I started back in April of last year!
What’s wrong with that photo? Yup, I sewed the seam wrong – well, not wrong, just not the way I had planned for the number of squares I had knitted up. I’ve since ripped out the seam, sewed the seam correct & finished joining together all of the squares & I’m 3/4 of the way done an i-cord border.
I’ve also been working on my vest – I finished one shoulder strap, finished casting off the back stitches with i-cord edging, and am working on the other strap, but I didn’t think to take a photo.
Now, onto the books!
I’m listening to Matched (Matched, #1) that I got from the library, I just started Lamb of Legacy: A Child’s Survival in Hitler’s Berlin which I got for review, and I’m also reading a book called “Rules” which is due out later this year, which is also for review.
