Today I'm joining Ginny from Small Things for Yarn Along.
I'm still slowly but surely working along on My shawl. I'm just a little over half way done. A few days ago I transferred it over to my big circular needles, afraid I'd run out of space on the straights. Oh how I wish I had started it there in the first place, but I wasn't sure how to knit flat on circular needles (thanks again to YouTube I figured out another new knitting aspect!). I love working on this since it's so easy and mindless that I can just get lost in it and not concentrate on anything!
In the mean time I'm trying my hand at my first pair of mittens (fingerless). I've never started a project on DPNs, so I'm second guessing myself on whether I'm doing it right. Every video I've watched shows the knitting going down through the whole, well mine is going up. Am I doing something wrong? And if yes, what? And how do I fix it? I've looked for the answer but can't seem to find it. Hopefully one of you wonderful experienced knitters can help! (Please and Thank you.)
As for reading, the end of last week brought me two of the three books I ordered. I'm loving all the little outfits in Carefree Clothes for Girls. I just hope to get better at sewing by the time little A will be able to fit them- I want to make them all for her! And I am reading bit by bit Start Spinning, no need to rush as at the moment I'm just intrigued by this craft and am gathering all the info I can before jumping in. I'm still waiting on my third book, not very patiently anymore, so in the mean time I'm taking my time and savoring my first issue of my new subscription to Taproot. I love this magazine! So much inspiration and so many ideas! I bought the very first issue a few months ago, to see if I would want a whole subscription, and am so glad I got it! Oh I so love it!
What are you reading? Knitting?
