~ 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? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. ~
Yes,I am back for the yarn along this week. I have been busy trying to homeschool the reluctant children- which allows knitting time because this pattern needs very little attention! I finished the back of my Quick Knit 1940's Sweater. It really is a very quick knit- I can't say as how I have spent lots of time of this sweater. The stitch is a twist stitch- which you might consider a narrow cable stitch, but the authors of the pattern have told you how to do it all without a cable needle!
I am a little leery of how narrow it looks- but my gauge swatch (yes I did one for this- most unusual) knitted up the the right size with these smaller needles. I am supposing it looks narrow and long because it stretches widthwise. I think I shall make a sleeve next, before repeating this to make the front.
My book is one I picked up at the library because I thought it looked interesting- and might be a good geography book. It is called Paris to the Past: Traveling through French History by Train by Ina Caro. So far, I am enjoying the book quite a bit.
