Another Wednesday rolls round and we get a chance to check out what wip’s are on the needles and also what am I reading right now,
On the left is the Basic Beanie I’m working on for my Mum. This is a slouchy beanie and it calls for the body of the hat to be 7 inches but I’m going to knit it 5 inches and then start the decreases. I’m knitting it in a Stylecraft Life DK yarn which is an acrylic and wool mix yarn so should stand up to the wear and tear of an everyday hat. It’s got some lovely flecks of red and blue through it to add some interest.
On the right is a cloth I’ve started it’s a Snowbaby Cloth and I’m knitting it in a King Cole Bamboo Cotton yarn on a 3.5 mm needle to give it a tighter gauge.
I am reading on my kindle at the moment Wraiths by Una D’Arcy, it’s a wonderful young adult book that adults will enjoy also. It is only available on kindle download at the moment and I’ve just been told by her that the second in the series Swansong will be available for download today ! Don’t you just love a series. This is a local author about local places and all those myths and legends that you read about Ireland this is just a tiny piece of that mixed with what is real also. I really do encourage you all to have a read of it.
I’m also listening to The House at Riverton by Kate Morton on my iPhone. This is a library download and I’m enjoying it very much at the moment.
