I am sharing a little about knitting and books today (because Wednesday) … and also because I have Good Newses to share for both 🙂
First up, the knitting.
I am almost afraid to type this, but y’all – Whippet is about 1-1/2 sleeves (and two sleeve seams) away from being finished … and I have not had to unravel anything so far. I know things look a bit wonky in the photo, but it’s nothing blocking won’t fix. The only big change I’m making to the pattern – and it’s not even really that big – is to knit the sleeves flat. As written, that lovely lace pattern is knit around the entire sleeve and I’ll have a few stitches of stockinette at the underarm seam. But the ease of knitting flat, not worrying at all about gauge (since the body was knit flat, too) and the fun of the eyelet pattern when you get to P, YO, P is more than making up for those few extra stitches of stockinette (and the two seams).
On the reading front, I finished the 13th book for Bingo this morning … and I still don’t have a Bingo! I do, however, have an epic Currently Reading shelf:
The five left-most titles are all going to be for Bingo squares – and Open Mind, Open Heart will likely be the first one I finish … for my first Bingo! I think this might be the first time I really have six books going (although only four are getting daily play time) … and for sure the first time my entire Currently Reading shelf is non-fiction. WHO AM I?!
Joining in with Kat and friends today … and looking forward to seeing what everyone else is knitting and reading – I’m sure Good Newses abound!
