I love to knit and I love to read. Apparently many knitters are also readers. I am once again joining the Yarn Along to share with others who share my affinities.
I have just started reading Choosing to See by MaryBeth Chapman. She wrote the book after losing her daughter in a tragic accident. It's such a sad situation, I've had a hard time bringing myself to read the book because I can't imagine the pain she must feel.
My big project is a circular sweater knitting in yummy Malabrigo Rios, a washable wool. It's so soft and a pleasure to knit with. The pattern is called Pole and I'm participating in a knit-along led by the designer herself. That's been really helpful since I'm using a different yarn than originally specified and that has affected the gauge and drape of the fabric. She's also helped me tweak the design for a custom fit.
I'm celebrating Malabrigo March by knitting various projects in Malabrigo yarns. I knit a cute hat for me since I seem to have lost my favorite Malabrigo hat.
