Yarn Along - Easy Knitting and Easy Reading
Joining in again this Wednesday (no baby yet...) with Ginny of Small Things to share two of my favorite things - knitting and reading.
I cast on to knit a very simple scarf - it is a basketweave pattern - knit two, purl two for two rows and then reverse that - purl two knit two for two rows. I am using a DK weight wool/merino blend from Peace Fleece in a soft mossy green/brown shade with little specks of color throughout and size 6 needles.
When the baby comes and so much of my time spent nursing I like to have several simple knitting projects kept in various locations where I would stop and nurse. This is a another simple project to join along with the shawl.
I finished up this enertaining and easy reading before sleep book - Whilstin' Dixie in a Nor'Easter by Lisa Patton.
I need some suggestions for some new reading.....
