~ 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? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr.
(this picture was tricky - Putin is in the picture and just kept staring through the work! Creepy.)
I still have yet to find another book. I flipped through recent issues of Interweave Knits and Vogue Knitting. I did stop to read an article in the Wall Street Journal about the elderly in Japan who are knitting following last year's tsunami. So touching - I have yet to meet a knitting who, in a time of crisis, does not pick up the needles! There really is something so soothing about the rhythm of making each stitch. Their yarn group has a website, Yarn Alive - please check them out!
I am working on several things that have a something in common. ALL the increasing! I had to double 400+ stitches on the rainbow "blob", the green hat needed a brim, and the hexi-flat increased as well. Thankfully, the hexiflat also decreases, so that feels like an accomplishment. The green hat just needs a buckle and has me doing a wee bit o'grumbling (more on that later this week), but oh well.
May your mid-week be pleasant - the weather here is stunning!!
