On Sunday we got home from a week long vacation and I didn't knit one stitch while we were away. Now that we are back, I have been trying to sneak in a few rows on my sweater each night before bed. I am getting close to being done with the body....hopefully by next week. And then I will need to figure out what to do with the sleeves. The pattern calls for 3/4 length, which often seems awkward for me. I may go for full length, but since it is a lightweight sweater, I was considering making them capped. Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts for me?
I did manage to get a bit of reading in on our trip. With 7 hours of flying each way, I had nothing more pressing to do! I devoured The Lowland by Jumpa Lahiri mostly on the flight there. I love her writing style, and this story was a favorite of mine. It took about 30 pages to get into the groove and then I was hooked. I would certainly recommend it. I also finally finished up the first book in the Game of Thrones series. Currently, I am almost finished reading The Great Gatsby and am also working my way through Buddhism for Mothers of Small Children, which has been a great tool for finding patience with little ones around, and How to Behave so Your Preschooler Will Too. So far I am appreciating this one.
What are you reading? What are you knitting?
