Two at a Time

This has been such a busy week filled with all sorts of things. I am working on Christmas gifts this week because it will be here before you know it!

First, and you knew this was going to be here right? Socks!

Here's a close up.

socks

These are so soft and yummy, the yarn is Cascade 100% Peruvian highland wool in Color Number 9404 (I think the ink is smugged) and Lot number 8768 it is a green/black blend.

They are being knit on size 4 circs. in men's size 10 with a ribbed cuff and stockinette stitch leg and foot.

Then is my first attempt at cables, I was so intimidated by them for so long they just "looked" difficult, well this is just a basic cable and so easy and fun I can't believe I haven't tried them before now! What was I thinking?! I have been missing out on all kinds of fun!

Naturally, that is a scarf, some people knit washcloths or other small items when trying a new pattern, I knit them into scarves.

I signed up for a summer reading club at the local library, anyone have any suggestions for summer reading fun? I tend to get into heavy historical types of books and while I enjoy them, they are not condusive to lighter possible fiction summer fun reading that I can read one a week. My favorite author doesn't have a new book out yet, so I am looking for new authors to try.

Happy Knitting and reading everyone!

Who is your favorite author? That might help me narrow the field a bit. ;)

OK--the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich are good...Have you tried any Mercedes Lackey (fantasy) yet? You could start with either Arrows of the Queen or By the Sword, both work well as stand alone books.
