Change of Plans in Knitting and Reading On

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. It has been so hot this weekend yesterday was humid and too hot and today was more breezy which was so much better. I did a bit of shopping for summer clothes yesterday and I also went to Michaels to buy some yarn to start knitting some socks. I think socks will be a fun knit to take along with me in the summer rather than a big shawl to carry around. I will start the shawl sometime in August. The shawl is on hold for now because I couldn't find the length of circular needles required for the project and I might be looking for a new one. In the meantime I will be working on finishing the second dishcloth made with Bernat cotton yarn in the colorway tie dye and then getting started on knitting the socks.

 I bought two skeins of Patons Kroy yarn in the colorway 'coastal stripes' to knit the socks. I am looking forward to starting the socks soon it has been awhile since I have knitted a pair. I am going to use the pattern spiral socks #146 by Patons. I have knitted socks with this pattern before as a gift to my mom and I really enjoyed knitting them in the summer and taking them on trips so they will be a fun project to knit while at the beach or by the pool.

I am almost done reading a Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult and I am enjoying it. It is interesting how the author speaks to all the different points of view of all of the hostages and the shooter in that kind of scary situation. I have also started reading What to Expect Before You're Expecting by Heidi Murkoff. So far I have been enjoying reading it and there are a lot of good tips on how you and your partner can get healthy before trying to conceive. It will still be awhile before I have a baby, but I wanted to read up on it now, so I can make sure I am ready when it is time to start a family.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the weekend!

  2. I love the color of the cotton you are using for a dish cloth. I'd buy some myself but I have so much yarn (some of it cotton) already.

    How wise you are to physically prepare for conceiving a child. It is the most important creation you will make!!

    1. Thank you I think the color is pretty fun. I tend to always work with yarn that is white or cream color with colored speckles. haha yeah we do tend to collect yarn pretty quickly good to use up what you got already. Thank you, I am excited for that next chapter in my life. I know it will be awhile from now and it will change my life in a lot of ways but I know it will be an amazing thing to have a baby one day. Thanks for stopping by!
