I was camping at Bon Echo this weekend (more pictures to come), and while I was there, I was…
Knitting :: A pair of plain striped socks using Knit Picks Essentials, purchased from a local Raveler during a destash last year. No pattern, just top down with a heel flap, 72 stitches around on US 0 needles. These are my first socks on 0s, as per Nika‘s suggestion, and I really like how the fabric is turning out – it’s not too stiff, but I think the density will add some durability.
Reading :: I finished all of A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams, which I really enjoyed. It was a perfect beach and camping read, very summery, but it actually had content and a pretty engaging plot, which I sometimes find “beach reads” are lacking. I loved the historical setting as well, and the seaside sounded just dreamy.
What have you all been knitting and reading this week?
