Hello friends and Happy Wednesday! Today is an Opera Wednesday (Porgy & Bess and I am so excited!), so this is gonna be a super quick update on what I’m knitting and reading.
On the needles are a pair of socks for my mom (well, technically, the first of a pair!)You might recall a few weeks back that two of her socks had already worn through in the heels. Those were socks I’d knit with Malabrigo Arroyo … super soft and lovely colors and sadly, just not up to hardwood floors. This yarn is a wool/nylon blend and we’ll see how it wears. I am enjoying the colors (named these “Florida Socks” 😉 )
and a sweet little baby sweater for friends who just welcomed their first grandson. This is my go-to baby gift knit for boys (this is the go-to for girls). I have another friend expecting her first grandchild this year. I’m hoping to knit the dress, but a cable-ful sweater will be ok, too! Do you have go-to baby gift knits? Seems I’m entering a season of new grand-babies and I’d love your recommendations!
On the reading front, I finished two books which I LOVED
and haven’t yet started anything new. Meanwhile, I’m still working slowly through my morning spiritual growth titles (three books right now) … and my in-box!
As always, a heartfelt Thank You to Kat for hosting our meet-up 🙂
