i have shared so many uncompleted knitting projects in the past months that i have the feeling i owe you an update. i've had a few knit-free weeks, too busy during the day to sit down and knit (i rather sit down and play trains and cars nowadays), and too tired in the evenings. but i'm slowly getting back into my rhythm.
so, what is there that i've started and continued that might be shared?
my shalom in lettuce of course. the body was done even before i arrived back here in germany. i started with the first sleeve and hopefully it will only be a few nights until this sweet (and warm!) cardigan will be ready to wear. i still need to find some buttons for it (4 this time).
remember what this was supposed to be? a scarf for my hubby. after ripping the entire thing apart a few times, i had finally found a pattern that i "kind of" liked. i still wasn't exactly sure about it, but i almost finished it. until, while roughhousing with my little man (yes, holding my needle work at the same time, not a good idea!) i lost a few stitches and from then everything went bad. i wasn't able to correct the mistake so i started ripping... what was left was less than i had started when i was in the states. yes, i shed a few tears, but this is a knitter's life. i frogged the whole thing and will pick it up after i had a few successes, like the above mentioned shalom and maybe a fisherman's pullover for the little man.
as with reading, it has been a bit like with my knitting for the last couple of weeks. but i hope to pick up "The Help" again soon, which at least i started already.
joining in with ginny's yarn along. what are you knitting and reading?
