Lately, I’ve been…

Knitting :: A few quick dishcloths, as a Christmas gift for my grandmother. Longtime readers will remember that I make these every year, and she keeps using them, so I keep making her more! Work has been so busy the past few weeks that I’ve really enjoyed having these to work on – a few rows at a time, and before you know it, you’ve finished a dishcloth.

Reading :: Still reading Field Study by Rachel Seiffert, though I haven’t made much progress because I’ve been reading on my Kindle on the subway and the streetcar. I’m currently about a third of the way into And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini, which has been great so far. Though I don’t read a lot on my Kindle at home, I really love it for travelling and for my morning commute. It’s so light (I have the older version of this one) and I can turn the page and hold it with only one hand, which is a must on a packed rush hour train. My only complaint is that borrowing books from the library on Kindle isn’t supported in Canada, and ebooks are too expensive for me to buy regularly.

What have you been knitting and reading this week?

Linking up with KCCO and Yarn-Along.

  1. Dish cloths are one of my favorite “filler” knits. I hope you will be able to get library books on your Kindle at some point. That is how I do most of my reading. I am terrible about getting books back to the library! Have a great week.

  2. Christmas knitting! Oh boy, thanks for the reminder!

    I’m in the throes of dishcloth making too. The ones I made two/three years ago are suddenly all wearing out. And oh, horrors, Christmas gifts…I haven’t even thought that through yet! But it is that time of year. I keep crossing Field Study at the library and have been tempted to pick it up, and then put it back. Not sure why? You’re enjoying it though? (And boo on Canadian rules for e-book lending! That’s my favorite part of our library now.)

  4. Kudos to you on reading this pair of thought-provoking books. I’ve been having easy reading of late – modern day romances, cowboys in particular. I have a romance-suspense lined up next that needs to get started on. I’ve been busy knitting a Superman colorway sock for the husband in the Rose City Rollers pattern and my brother’s vanilla Christmas sock.

  5. My gram loved my wash cloths and I could not keep up with her usage! Lovely that you do the same.
