I'm working away on my newest knitting project, a Palmyre Shawl. Though the pattern is simple enough (and has great reviews for ease), I struggled a bit in the beginning. I am not following the pattern precisly, but am getting the shape and number of stitches I need for the lace part. I have already scheduled a knitting SOS for next Tuesday at our local yarn shop to help me look over the lace part of the pattern. Hopefully that will help things go smoothly.
I haven't had much time for reading this past two weeks (I've been having too much fun with my siblings!), but I am already back to it. I only have a little bit left in The Scent of Holiness and Daily Rituals and am also listening to North and South while I knit and clean.
