Knitting a Sweater and Reading about Mittens

Winter is coming.

I can’t tell you too much about what I am knitting. It is a surprise for someone. I can tell you it is going to be soft, warm, and oh so very cozy. I can also tell you that cat hair sticks to it like crazy.

Last week, I picked up a pile of knitting books from the local library. I can devour patterns so much faster than I can actually knit them, but the pictures are pretty, and very motivational.

They taunt me. … keep knitting, don’t stop, don’t you want to make something pretty and colourful like these mittens? … oh, knitting dark green stockinette stitch again… still…. with 8 skeins more to go? … don’t you wan to knit something small and colourful like these mittens? … keep knitting… don’t stop….

I am going to finish this sweater before I cast on another project. I swear. I solemnly swear. MUST KEEP KNITTING.

Knitting: Green Sweater Reading 'Mostly Mittens'

This is my second post in the Ginny’s Yarn Along on the small things blog. Its fun to see who else is participating, what they are reading and knitting. I see Ginny is reading one of my all time favourite stories, ‘Howards End’
