Knitting and Reading

For the yarn along this week, we were asked what we are reading. Since I am not one of those talented individuals who can read WHILE knitting, I have turned to another method - listening and knitting. I like to listen to a sermon in the mornings before my kids get up, and my knitting progresses too. But, you cannot take this English major's love of the feel of a physical book. I have a good one going on right now that you can hopefully see in the picture.

This week I had some time "in town" after a doctor's appointment, so I picked up a few beautiful magazines. There is just something so fun about flipping through some inspirational articles. One of the magazines has a recipe for French macarons that I am so excited to try.

My knitting is coming along on the sweater (Moxie pullover). I'm not sure that it will be done by the first day of spring, but one can hope (and knit - yes knitting will help). The second picture shows progress as well as comparison to another sweater I knitted, and I want the new sweater to be just as long through the body. I'm almost there!

While taking these pictures in the early morning (to take part in the yarn along at Ginny's) my kids begged me to take their pictures. We are the masters of bedhead; I'm saving them for another post.

Have a warm and cozy day somewhere with a bit of knitting possibly, as it looks like we're in for some cold outside today in our neck of the woods. TTFN!

  1. We were cold here today -- I'm so ready for WARM. The sweater looks lovely and your idea of listening while knitting is a good one!
