Hello friends! I’m delighted to be back with Kat and crew today to share a little about what I’m knitting and reading.
On the knitting front, I’m now monogamously committed to that white knit tee. It’s my second time knitting this pattern, my second project in a row on size 4 straight needles and my second straight stockinette pullover (with seams, no less!) in a row. hummm… I wonder what’s going on here? 😉 I think it’s only appropriate I’ve named the project Simple Tee Too!
I will admit things got a little tense yesterday while I watched the latest Espace Tricot podcast.
I’ve been smitten with Melissa’s gorgeous Ranunculus since she first shared an in process photo on Instagram. and seeing it finished, in the prettiest shade of pale pink linen … well … it took every bit of my self-control to keep knitting what I’m knitting. Truthfully, a long-sleeved pullover – even in linen – is not something I can wear now anyway. So my deal with myself is that come September, when I’m thinking about Fall knits, if I’m still smitten, I’ll buy yarn and knit it.
On the reading front, I finished the latest Maisie Dobbs (The American Agent) on audio last week. I really enjoyed it (and I’ll give it 4 stars when I get around to recording it in Goodreads). I was keeping the audio deck free for the upcoming Jackson Brodie, which I thought came out yesterday. But when I checked Audible, I discovered the actual release date is June 25 (gah!) … good thing I have a backlog of podcasts to keep me busy!
I’m still reading Auntie Poldi #2 … but that reading is definitely taking a backseat to the knitting, sewing (stay tuned!), podcasts and general out-and-about-ness of this week. I picked up two more books from the library yesterday, so I’m going to have to make progress or move back to the end of the line. We’ll see!
While my self-control is in high gear, I’d love to know what you’re knitting and/or reading … let’s see if I can withstand the temptation 🙂
