You'd think that with just two sleeves to knit this week, I'd have finished the black Annabel. Nope. When I switched to dpns, I found I was getting a little bit of laddering, so I pulled harder on the yarns, wishing of course that I simply had a short circuluar needle to do the job. I discovered a site with a few tricks on how to deal with ladders (I think mine were too tight rather than too loose). At any rate, I've been fixing the one sleeve and will have to get a move on the other. Don't think I'll meet my self-imposed deadline for this sweater since tomorrow is the last day of May, but who knows... between the dentist visit (for me) and college placement exam visits (for my two oldest), I may just squeeze in some knitting.
My reading has consisted mainly of cookbooks (for all the vegan cooking I'm doing recently) but yesterday, when my 2nd issue of Taproot arrived, I happily substituted my reading material for the magazine. That is..until I turned it over...just look at the poor thing! So sad. Yes, I've received damaged items delivered to my mailbox before, and I know it happens, but on the inside of the back cover is a very neat illustration (at least from what I can tell), and I was hoping to be able to see the whole thing. Oh well. Hope to get my hands on a 2nd copy soon.
What about you? What are you knitting and reading this week for Ginny's Yarn Along?
