These weekly meme’s give us all a chance to check in with any works in progress we have, both Tami and Ginny and with Ginny we get to see what books we may also be reading. Do head over to both blogs, links at the top to check out other’s participating today.
So what’s on my needles today ?
Starting top left we have Copper Pot Milo. I’ve not worked on this in a couple of days but hope to get to it later in the week. I’m at the body of it. Have it liked to my project page on Ravelry.
Top right is the Stormy Night beanie I’m knitting for James birthday. I’ve been working on this during the day this last two days, it has been one of those projects two rows knit one row frogged kind of thing. I normally hate to read charts and always opt for the written directions. This pattern though the written directions are not so good and when I looked at the chart and what was in front of me and went with that it started to go smoothly. I’m about half way through this now and I’m hoping I made it long enough, he doesn’t normally like to fold up the ribbing so time will tell if I have made it long enough.
Bottom right is the second Ocean Blue sock. Up to last night this has been my project to knit on for night time. It is now at the heel part so half way there really. This pair of socks have been surprisingly quick.
Bottom left is a doily pattern I started last night. I will have more details on that in Sunday’s YOP post so do check back then. Startitis has not finished yet and no doubt there will be more by Sunday!
The book I’m reading this week is The First Apostle by James Becker. I finished Friendship Bread last week and will do my review and post it on Monday. I’m really enjoying The First Apostle and it is moving along quite quickly.
