Moving Forward

wip

Finally movement :)

I have actually been sitting close to my Juliana this week and knitting up a storm!

Last week I had just cast off for the armhole. This week I have managed to knit just on 47cm of the front side - WOAH! That means I have 23cm to get to my cast off edge :)

If all goes well I am hoping to be on the sleeves by next week, hold thumbs for me.

Since I have knit exclusively on this project this week I have not made any progress on Kay's Socks this week, but that is okay, I really can't wait to have my Juliana off the needles!

Reading Wise: Unfortunately, I could not get into the title "Pilgrims Rest" from last week and so I put it aside for another title from Khaled Hosseini - "And the Mountains Echoed

and the mountains echoed

I am thoroughly enjoying this book and will tell you all about it once it has been read.

How are your WIPs growing?

I wish you all a great week.
Thanks for visiting.

  2. Wow! That is beautiful! It is going to be awesome when it is done. So jealous of how much you can knit at one time! Man, I could knit so much more if I could do more than a few rows at once :-) Love the color too.

    1. Hi Heather,
      I think it is because I am spurred on by wanting it to be off my needles! It looks like one of the longest scarves I have ever knitted at the moment and I just want to start the sleeves - hence the knitting as fast as I can :) What also helps is that it is an 8 row pattern repeat so I have started to push myself to do at least 2 or 3 pattern repeats a day.
      Thanks so much for your visit.
      Have a great rest of your day.

    1. Hi thecrazysheeplady,
      Yes, it is such a good book, I can't wait to get to bed and read some more :) When I started to bawl my eyes out around page 50 I knew I was onto a winner! I have downloaded "A Thousand Splendid Suns" to be read soon too. Have you read that title as well?
      Thanks so much for visiting.

    1. Hi Laura,
      Thanks so much, I seem to be leaning toward that colour in most of my knits lately, I used to have a blue tick but that seems to have healed itself, and I do appreciate this plum colour much more ;)
      Have a great rest of your day.
