Socks off the Needles and a New Book to Read

Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. I have had a great long weekend, it was Victoria Day on Monday so it gave us an extra day off on the weekend. I saw some friends on Sunday and did some Spring Shopping, and on Monday I caught up on my knitting and did some studying for my courses.  I was really busy with my online accounting course yesterday, writing an assignment so I was not able to write a blog post on my usual Tuesday sadly. But I am here today! :)

I finished knitting the socks today that I have been working on, and I am so happy that they are finally off the needles, I loved following the basic socks pattern on the Bernat Sox label. I would definitely buy this yarn again and follow the pattern provided.

Bernat Basic Socks, Bernat Sox fine yarn using 2.75 mm needles

I put them on today and they are so cozy!
I am still working on the sleeve for the 3timesChic sweater. It is coming along well. I am ust knitting in the pattern now because I am finished doing the increasing.

I am almost finished the Nest and The Little Book of Hygge. I should be finished by next week. Once I am done, I am excited to read this book called "Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy" by Helen Fielding.  I saw all the Bridget Jone's movies, but I have never read the books. I am enjoying my green tea right now in one of my favorite mugs, and now I am off to see what you are all working on today!


What are you working on and reading this week?

  1. It's lovely to have you Yarning Along today, I hope you'll keep joining in every Wednesday.

    Your socks are impressive! I hope I get confident enough to try different patterns. To knit them from the pattern on a yarn label seems very good.

    The Bridget books are great. I always imagine Renee now, although when I originally read the first two she was yet playing her!

    1. Thank you, they do fit so nicely and are very comfortable. I have knit socks before but they were with worsted weight yarn, and this is my first pair in fine, sock yarn, so it was fun to try it out!
