This week, I’ve been…
Knitting :: A simple pair of toe-up socks, but with a twist- an afterthought heel! I’ve never done an afterthought heel before, but I like it so far! The yarn is Turtle Toes self-striping, which I picked up at the Toronto Knitter’s Frolic a few weeks ago. It’s neat because it comes in 2 identical small skeins- one from each sock. As long as you start from the same end of both balls, your socks turn out the same!
Reading :: I’ve just started Where’d You Go, Bernadette, which lots of people have been recommending. I’m only a little ways in, but it seems like it will be a fun summer read.
I’ve also been perusing The Beginner’s Guide to Growing Heirloom Vegetables, which is a nice guide to some basic heirloom varieties with beautiful photos. I just wish it had more info about container gardening with heirloom varieties- if you have any resources, I’d love to hear about them in the comments!
What have you been knitting and reading this week?
