Lately, I’ve been…

Knitting :: Still (yes, again!) working on my Aidez cardigan for Rhinebeck. I didn’t have a ton of time to work on it this week, but I’ve nearly finished the second front and then there are just the sleeves to go. I’m considering doing them two at a time since they’ll be a single cable pattern with ribbing, but I find two at a time messes up my knitting rhythm. Might still be faster, though – anyone have any suggestions?

Reading :: Not pictured because it’s on my Kindle, but I’ve just got a couple of chapters left in The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. It did get better, though I’m holding out final judgement until I finish the entire book.

Watching :: Lots of CSI reruns, and a couple of films during the last weekend of TIFF (the Toronto International Film Festival). Our favourite by far was Their Finest, a 1940s rom com set in Britain during the second world war. I loved the costumes – so many pretty knit tops and cardigans!

What have you been knitting and reading this week?

Linking up with KCCO and Yarn Along.

  1. REALLY love that yarn colour! I love seeing everyone’s Rhinebeck sweater/cardigan/socks – I live in Australia, but dream about coming to Rhinebeck one year!

  2. Oh, how I love that texture of your knitting! And the autumn colour is very pretty too!

  3. Looking forward to seeing this cardi off your needles! It’s going to be so gorgeous!

  4. This cardi is going to be spectacular!! I’ll be looking for it (and you) and Rhinebeck!!!

  5. I wish I had the key to quick sleeves! Alas, they are my knitting slog! As for reading – I am listening to Inspector Gamache, who is brilliant!

  6. I finished two of my recent library stack, one fiction and one romance. I’m on the last book. I have a hold that may come in any day so I’ve been reading like a fiend. Still knitting gift socks and working on my scarf.

  7. Love your yarn choice! I’ve been wanting to knit an Aidez forever. “The Invention of Wings” is on my to-read list, but who knows if I’ll ever get to it. I absolutely loved “The Secret Life of Bees,” but Kidd’s next book, “The Mermaid Chair,” really did not do it for me.

  8. Gorgeous colour! Great for autumn!

  9. I have no advice, I never do two at a time sleeves because it feels like it disrupts the knitting flow to me.

  10. Aidez is a great coice for Rhinebeck, and that colour is amazing. What a beautiful combo of colour and pattern! I knit a grey Aidez years ago, I keep meaning to knit myself another one because it’s such a great cardigan.
