Slow progress.

WIP - Hitofude

Agatha Christie

Malabrigo Sock

Knitting and reading

This week I’m…

Knitting :: My Hitofude cardigan… the progress this week has been slow but I’ve gotten a couple of the lace repeats done. I love how the lace looks in this yarn (Malabrigo Sock in Eggplant). I’ve been seeing so many gorgeous versions of this pattern recently, so I’m hoping to have more time to work on this cardigan this week!

Reading :: The Mysterious Affair at Styles, by Agatha Christie. I read a bunch of Agatha christie books last summer, as you might recall, and I’m trying to read as many more as I can this summer. This was actually her first novel and I’m really enjoying it so far.

What have you been knitting and reading this week?

Liking up with KCCO and Yarn-Along as usual.

    LOVE the mysterious affair! I think it was her first book (?).

  3. I love that color <3 It's going to look great when it's finished…sending you lots of patience 😉

    • Thanks! I think I will be needing it 🙂

  4. I love that cardigan – it is on my queue, too! I can’t wait to see yours finished. And the yarn is beautiful. Perfect color for some vintage-y, Agatha Christie 1920’s inspired lace. 🙂

    • Thanks Brandy! I’m liking the pattern so far and I am totally in love with the colour of the yarn 🙂

    • Thanks so much! Happy knitting 🙂

  5. What a lovely color! I’m working on an Elder Tree shawl in gray organic cotton and reading Ripper by Isabel Allende.

    • Thanks!
      I love Isabelle Allende, but I haven’t read Ripper… I’ll add to my to-read list! Happy knitting 🙂

  6. I love to see a lace pattern come together! Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors. I haven’t read anything by her lately…maybe I will pick this one up!

    • Thanks Heather!
      I like this Agatha Christie because you get a bit of background on the characters! Really neat especially if you’ve read some of her other books.

  7. that yarn is gorgeous. I can’t even imagine how amazing a sweater made with it will look. It’s such a great color!

  8. This pattern is next on my to-do list so I am super excited to see you working on yours. Beautiful colour and you really just cannot go wrong with Mal Sock

    • Thanks! This is my first project with Mal Sock but I am loving it so far!
      Happy knitting 🙂

  9. Holy horse! I’ve been eyeing that pattern and I am so close to just buying the pattern and being done with the indecision. I’ll be curious to see how you like the pattern.

    • I will definitely let you know! I’ve only knit a very small part of it, but based on that and my read through, I really like it!
      Happy knitting 🙂

  10. Ooh, I’ve had my eye on the Hitofude pattern. I bet yours will be lovely!

    • Thanks! I loved The Fault in our Stars- enjoy! Happy knitting 🙂

  14. I loved reading Agatha Christie until I could figure out all of the endings. Great color for your cardigan.

    • Haha, some of her books are quite predictable, but I love them anyways! Thanks Cathie and happy knitting 🙂

  15. Gorgeous knitting!!! I always love to see your pictures.
    I have an Agatha Christie in the works but took a little break because a library book came in that I had been waiting for… I will return though, because it’s such a fun read!

    • Thanks Sarah, that’s so sweet! Agatha Christie books are always fun to read! Happy knitting and reading 🙂

  16. That is a lovely grey for a sweater. I bet it will look lovely. As for reading, I just finished up the Matchmaking Series by Candace Camp. Yay for semi historical victorian romances!
