On My Needles
I feel like it’s not been much of an update kind of week. But there is some good news! I am almost positive that I am doing the second wing of the Asteick correctly. This is a huge relief. I can even almost see how the construction is coming together! This is great for me as I am a very visual knitter and when I can see what is happening it increases my confidence level. Now I’m just concerned that I won’t have enough yarn. But as my husband says, “only fret about one thing at time with this shawl.” It’s good advice. No picture yet, cause it’s looking a little odd on the needles right now and will be very difficult to get a proper photo.
My Bff”s Christmas gift is finally on the needles. I’ve changed the pattern three times. But as they say, third time’s the charm and I think I have found what I’m going to stick with. I know she’ll like it.
Between my Pages
It’s been one of those weeks when life has gotten in the way and I haven’t had much time to read much of anything, (including other people’s blogs. I miss you all!!!!!) The few pages that I have been able to steal for reading have been on The Stone Diaries and I am thoroughly enjoying it. It’s a very interesting story of one woman’s life. It’s well written and worth the time to read. I hope next week to have a more in depth review for you.
I hope everyone has had a great reading and knitting week and I look forward to catching up with all of you very soon.
