Hello! I thought I'd pop by to share what I'm reading and what's (still) on my needles at the mo.
I've not been a busy blogger, but I have been a busy bee. Craft-wise, I've got my hands full with a couple of secret projects that, God willing, I'll be able to share with you in a few month's time. But, that hasn't left a whole lot of time for reading and non-project making. They're good for the soul, though, aren't they? It's so important to make time for those kind of things, especially when you feel in a bit of a whirl.
So, my current bedside book is Keep Your Love On by Danny Silk. It's about love, communication and boundaries. I'm not far in yet and it's already pretty challenging! Will keep you posted. Have you read it?
On my needles is Miette. Yep, that cardi I started at Christmas – still going! I pressed pause on it a few times, but now I'm determined to get it finished. It's my knit night project as once I'm out at the pub and everyone else is stitching, I have no choice but to get on with it! The second sleeve needs finishing, then it's just button bands and neckband to go - phew!
Hope all's well with you. I'd love to know what you're reading and making.
I'm joining in again with Ginny's Yarn Along.
Love all the cute details in this cardigan!ReplyDelete
Thanks Alina! Just visited your blog - LOVE your knitwear photography! :)Delete
Nice color and nice lace details! It's alright for projects to take time... That way you can appreciate a little bit more the time and effort put into it whenever you wear it.ReplyDelete
Thanks Christine - you're so right. It'll all be worth it in the end! :)Delete
I hope you finish that pretty sweater soon. Enjoy your knitting and reading.ReplyDelete
Cheers Cathie, pleased to be making progress with it again. :)Delete
What a beautiful caridigan!! I love the cheerful color!ReplyDelete
Thanks Sarah! I purposely picked it as I don't really have much red in my wardrobe - should slot in nicely! :)Delete
That is such a cute cardi. It is definitely worth finishing!ReplyDelete
Thanks, hopefully I'll have it done by the time the cooler weather is back! :)Delete
I love the detail on the cardigan! I've never tried one with lace detail, sticking with colour work or simple garments myself, but this looks so lovely I might have to queue it up! jenny xxReplyDelete
Jenny! It's my first ever adult-sized knitted garment - definitely recommend this pattern - it's fairly simple! If I can do it, you definitely can! :) xDelete

Thank you Karen, it's a great one to knit - I've really enjoyed it so far!Delete
