In the park
On the bus
My knitting lately has been more focused on my handspun tunic jumper. I hadn't knitted it for a while, just took a break longer than expected and then when the weather was hot (remember that?) it was too hot to knit with this wool, just made my hands hot and clammy. So with the change of weather last week I got this out again and have added many, many more rows.
Handspun tunic using the grey zwartble x
This is a top down seamless top (less work)and I am currently shaping the lower part that flares out like a tunic. I shall then be adding some finishing touches to the sleeves and maybe the neckline by picking up stitches, just haven't decided what to do yet. Maybe I'll try it on first when blocked/pressed and see whether it needs anything. I' enjoying this, enjoying knitting a large item with my handspun and loving the grey colours from this natural fleece.
Reading several things as usual, knitting and spinning items are being dipped in and out of mainly. We went to a local library the other day and when I returned to the childrens area after a browse in the craft books (as you do) I found Imogen sitting reading this
Getting into Terry Pratchett at the library
A girl following her parents love of Terry Pratchett. Later in the day she said she recognised the name from books by my bedside. I think I read this to her when she was younger, at the library. The next book she picked up was by Neil Gaiman. This girl of ours has good taste in books!
I'm going to link this up to Ginny's Yarn Along, since it contains knitting and reading.
Oh and the exciting delivery in the post?
