My husband very nicely ordered three skeins of Madeline Tosh in Antler as part of my Christmas gift this year and I have been enjoying it so much! I printed out the pattern for a Riverbank Cowl after hemming and hawing over it for awhile. I really liked the texture of the cowl, but I wasn't crazy about all of the ribbing on either end. It finally dawned on me that I was the boss of my own knitting and could change it! I went with five rows of ribbing and to make up for it, I will be repeating the textured part of the pattern three times instead of twice. I love it so far!
I finished Joy in the Morning the other night and then spent a little time reading through the end notes on Betty Smith's life which were fascinating to me. I think that I will get Maggie Now to read soon... I don't think that I ever have before. In the interim, I've picked up No Holly For Miss Quinn, the first Miss Read book I ever read. It is such a nice Christmas story!
What are you reading and knitting?
