What I am doing right now, pretty much exclusively, is working on my Braid Hills cardigan. The construction is interesting, and keeps me on my toes. So much in fact, that after I had all the separate pieces put onto waste yarn (per the instructions), I looked at it in despair. Then I showed my clever husband the piece, and the picture, and he helped me see how it would work out in the end. So nice to have someone to help me see past my own confusion!
The sleeve caps are made using Sunday Short Rows, which I think are pretty brilliant. I'd never done sleeves this way, and I love it so far. I can't wait to try it on when I get further along.
Right now I'm also loving the library. I do like my Kindle, but I haven't touched it since we moved to this town with its glorious library. The girls and I go once a week, and this past week I checked out the knitting section. So big! So many books to peruse. I couldn't resist the hat book!
And I just finished the Collector of Dying Breaths. It was an interesting read, but I had a wee bit of a hard time investing in the characters/story. I'd say three stars.
And that's it for me this week. I won't have a FO for weeks at the rate I'm knitting this cardigan, but I am so enjoying it. The yarn is such a gorgeous color.
