~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?
Complete. I took some very nice pictures this morning while the light was perfect. Of course this evening the camera would not cooperate. So iPad pictures and my bed :(
After blocking, it is certainly larger than I had planned. Lot's of wrapping a little one in this blanket! The colors came together well. Just enough pink to know it is a girl. This mother didn't want " all things pink".
It is the quickest I have ever knit a blanket. June 3 - July 5 per Ravelry. Wow! Let's hope this next one is as quick. I have a sweater for a granddaughter waiting in the wings.
The chevron fabric was a surprise find and should make a nice Drawstrings gift bag in a laundry size for the nursery.
Currently on the needles is Erica's Blanket. Since the original is a take on the Rocketry Cardigan, I decided to name it for the recipient. This mother is using lilac, gray and white and I am just adding the colors as the feeling strikes. The seed stitch row at each color change gives a wonderful texture to an otherwise simple stockinette pattern. I really love this blanket.
My library trip turned up on e very good book. Fr. James Martin is a well known priest and has written many books of theology. This one does not disappoint. Based on his trip to the Holy Land, his biblical knowledge, and priestly experience, he takes us on a journey in a style I have never read. A thick book, but an easy read.
Prayer for the Stolen is a work of fiction, but takes place in Mexico and tells the life of a young girl trying to avoid the Cartel. A different read for me, but it drew me in.
As always, I look forward to Wednesdays and linking up with Ginny!
