This week I’m…

Knitting :: The last 2″ of my Itaka cardi… so much garter stitch! Almost there. I’m hoping to finish this sometime this week. I got my sister to try it on and I’m aiming for a slightly longer sweater than the pattern sample.

Reading :: Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo. This has been on my to-read list for forever, so when I saw it in the library I had to pick it up! So far it’s as good as everyone says. Lots of interesting discussion about social inequality and economic disparity and the lives of people who live in the undercity of Mumbai.

I hope your are all having a lovely week!

Linking up with KCCO and Yarn-Along as usual.

    • Thanks so much Lorraine!
      Happy knitting 🙂

  1. Beautiful cardi- it’s looking really lovely!

  2. Kylie your cardigan is gorgeous…love this color so much. I just finished a little purple vest for my 1 year old that is this exact color. Good luck finishing it up this week!

    • Thanks so much, Laura… it’s one of my favourite colours too!
      I am just starting my first quilt and I am using your chevron tutorial… it’s great and I can’t wait to see yours finished!
      Happy knitting 🙂

      • That is great Kylie! It has been slow going with the quilt tutorial since we have been dealing with everyone being sick here, so bear with me on the tutorial. I am spreading it out another week and am hoping to have part 3 up by Saturday…if I start feeling better.

      • I’m just cutting everything out this week so no worries about spreading the sections out! The tutorial has been great so far 🙂 Sorry to hear you guys have been unwell- I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Those last couple of inches can take forever sometimes. It’s looking great and you will have a lovely sweater real soon!

    • Thanks Donna! I totally agree- hopefully it will be worth it!
      Happy knitting 🙂

  4. so much garter stitch, it’s the best kind of knitting to me! That means I can multitask 🙂 Lovely so very lovely!

    • Thanks Karen! Haha, I love multi-tasking but garter stitch still seems to bore me!

  9. This is a beautiful cardigan. I love that simple top down pattern and the lace and colour add a lot of grace to it!!

  10. Oh, that purple is lovely. And so is the detailing on the yoke. Must be exciting to be so close to the end. 🙂
