|Me wearing the neckwarmer.|
FYI, I dislike self photographs.
I am participating in the Jimmy Beans Wool Downton Abbey Mystery KAL. I chose Knit Picks Felici Sport yarn for the Dinner Gauntlets. If I knit this again, I will probably not choose self striping yarn. This was my first time casting on using a provisional stitch. I watched Season 3 Episode 2 of Downton Abbey on Monday. I must confess that I cried because of what happened to Edith and reminded myself, "This is just fiction Sarah."
I am listening to one of my favorite books-Little Women. There is at least one instance where it talks about knitting.
"It's bad enough to be a girl, anyway, when I like boys' games and work and manners! I can't get over my disappointment in not being a boy; and it's worse than ever now, for I'm dying to go and fight with papa, and I can only stay at home and knit, like a poky old woman!" And Jo shook the blue army sock till the needles rattled like castanets, and her ball bounded across the room.
So, I guess I'm a poky old woman.
I'm reading Pride and Prejudice, one of my other favorite books, but I only finished the first chapter. I love the wittiness. I also feel very much like Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail when she writes, "I'm always in agony over whether Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are really going to get together. Read it-I know you'll love it."
What are you reading or knitting?
