A Day spent Knitting, Reading and Blogging

Hello Friends,


I hope that you are having a good day and enjoying these final days of October. Today I was spending time knitting my second sock with Charisma Heather yarn by Loops & Threads as a Christmas gift to my mom. She liked the socks I knit her last year so I am making her another pair this time in the denim color she liked. My sister also requested a pair for Christmas so I will be busy! I love this time of the year, Halloween is soon approaching with the thoughts of my favorite holiday Christmas coming in a couple of months.



I started reading a book called Zen and the Art of Knitting by Bernadette Murphy which I am really enjoying so far. I thought I would share this book because it discusses knitting as an art form, the benefits of knitting, why people knit, and shares stories about people knitting who the author has interviewed. I am excited to read more of the book, I started reading it last night and I was reading more today. Here is my cat trying to get my yarn while I take a photo!


I have been on Instagram more often now posting photos and following other people and liking their photos. I am really happy having new followers and being able to see other people's projects which they knitted or crocheted. It truly is a wonderful community and I am proud to be a part of it.

  4. A bulky weight sock sounds like the perfect cozy treat for those colder winter days. Absolutely a perfect gift.
    I've been looking for a nice knitting book to follow up Knitting Yarns, and Zen and the Art of Knitting sounds like just the one. Thanks for the recommendation!
