[insert clever title here]*

I'm pleased to have a picture this week that represents some decent progress in both knitting and reading, it feels like a little while since I have had such a good week ;)


As you can see, I have made some progress on my sock - the weather has taken a turn for the worse, temperature-wise, so alpaca socks now seem like an excellent project *laughs* I have another few rows to go before turning the heel.

My other main project is the cardigan I wrote about recently. Despite the long purl rows, not my favourite thing at all, I have completed a fairly large chunk of knitting:


Not bad, huh? It's currently about bust length on me, so I still have a long way to go, but I'm really pleased with how it is shaping up so far.

I love the felted tweed fabric, I can totally see why people rave about this yarn (even if it does cover me in fibres as I'm working!)


And the subtle stripes that I was hoping would work - well, I'm really happy with them. I think it works really well:


Pop over to Tami's and Ginny's for more lovely knitting and reading content, and have a lovely day *smiles*

*yeah, so I seem to be lacking title inspiration this morning!

  8. Ooh lovely cardie. And socks. Must be alpaca sock weather! You need one of those cat hair remover thingies to get rid of the fibres after a knitting session :)

  13. So envious of both of these projects---the socks are awesome, and that sweater really is so, so subtle and elegant. Love it.

    Also, how's The Knife of Never Letting Go? I've often been drawn to the title as I browse in the library, but haven't checked it out yet.

  21. I love the colors of your knitting this week! I like to have a brighter project going while I work on something more subdued too...it makes for good color therapy. :) I'm sharing a Sunday Sweater test knit this week. Happy knitting!
