Joining with Ginny of Small Things for this week's yarn along.
Well, over the past week I finished my sockhead hat! And I have already worn it quite a bit. I have yet to get a picture of me in it, so maybe by next week. I also whipped up another just plain ol' hat for me. Not sure when I decided to knit so many things for myself, but I must say it's pretty fun!
On the needles now- I just casted on this sweater (also for me!). I am expecting it to take me a while, because I have knitting ADD and will have to start 4 or 5 more things before I make it through the sweater. Especially since Phoebe picked out this hilarious 70's colorway yarn the other day and asked me to knit her a vest with it. How could I say no? Lime green, orange and brown are sure to make a winning vest, right?
I have managed to squeeze in a few chapters of Game of Thrones, but my main reading has been the stack of environmental non-fictions that I got from the library. I am trying to choose a book for my class to read next term. I am starting with Slow Death by Rubber Duck and it is pretty intriguing so far. I think I have my work cut out for me for a while though....
And, of course, Matty cat had to make an appearance. I don't know what is with him with the yarn along photos.
What are you reading? What are you knitting?
