The mere fact that I am not showing you the lavender cardigan again this week is cause for celebration!
Instead I've started the same Tanvi cardigan in a new yarn for my other daughter. The yarn she chose is Sirdar Snuggly 4ply. it is 55% nylon, 45% acrylic. It is soft, and lovely, and I'm enjoying knitting with it. I'm also finding that this time I don't mind making a second one, as there were a few things that I didn't like the first time around. Before I blame the pattern on being poorly written in sections, I need to figure out if it is just me (pretty sure it's me!).
So without further ado, here's where I'm at:
See how I tried to sell that and I'm only a couple of inches into it? Oh well, these appear to be quick knit cardigans, so I'll check back in next WIP Wednesday and we'll see how far I've gotten.
Before I go, I'll quickly add in the books I've been reading. First up is The Sheik, by E.M. Hull.
How I came to read a romance/adventure novel written in the 1920's by a farm housewife, I'll never know (or maybe it is just that I am sucker for free e-books?). Why I kept reading it is a no brainer. It was fun! Overly ridiculous, yes, but I don't read romance novels so maybe that is normal.
I'm also just finishing up Organized Simplicity. I've been seeing it about in blogland, and I loved it! Seriously, I want to get rid of 1/2 my stuff and get on a plane to a new life. Check back in a year and let's see how close I am to making that happen!!
