...with Ginny at Small Things..
The "It's summer!" edition.
Ah...summer. Books and books and books and knitting. I'm excited. Though the unscheduled life of summer does tend to get to me after a while I think it will be a few weeks (months) before I get tired of it. I need some unscheduled time right now.
I started the summer with this wonderful book (The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton) recommended by dear Ginny herself, and I am so enjoying it. This is my idea of a book: some mystery and intrigue, a little romance, parental love, set in another era, oceanside with an elaborate garden and an opulent home ...I could go on. Suffice it to say I am thoroughly enjoying every page of this book.
Most of my knitting these days is done in the car waiting on one child or another, or in the line at the bank. Not a lot of knitting right now. Next week we start summer prep classes, however, and there will be plenty of car time.
This is my own pattern for potholders: 47 stitches cast on a number 7 needle (love my Harmonies!), seed stitch for 47 rows and bind off. Repeat and then stitch the two together with a running stitch just inside the edge. This potholder is a set I am making for my mother-in-law. The yarn is Sugar 'n' Cream Taupe Twist.
Join Ginny and friends for more knitting and reading.
