Yarn Along : Knitting and Reading

I’m joining in Yarn Along this week hosted by Ginny of Small Things. It’s the chance for those of us who love knitting and reading to share what project is currently on our needles and which book we have our noses buried in. And I personally add what music I’ve been listening to as well.

Knitting : Right now, I'm working on my sixth pair of socks for The Challenge. Melissa generously gifted me the pattern Irish Oats, which was perfect since I had two skeins of Quince and Co. Chickadee. So far the socks are coming along well and are easily the fanciest pair I've made, with the textured cables and moss stitch running up the front. I'm making excellent progress on them which attests to the enjoyment of the pattern. (I'm also knitting a lot for some original patterns!)

Reading : As I mentioned in an Instagram post, I was gifted an impressive stack of books this Christmas. The first book I got into was The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook and it's a beauty! I want to meet all of these sheep and feel their woolly goodness!

Listening : I've been enjoying discovering new artists via Spotify playlists lately. Top songs to check out include: Cover Me Up, Hell's Bells, Gun in My Hand, Fur Coat Blues, End of the Affair and Devil is All Around

PS : A reminder that Deneise is offering a cabinfour sock pattern to one of the Monthly Sock Challenge participants. If you aren't already, now is a great time to join in the Month Sock Challenge! I started this challenge in August to knit a pair of socks every month. You are welcome to join in for a month or just here and there or join me through the whole year. The only solid rule is to try to complete your pair of socks within the one month time frame. Read more and add links here.
