Knitting and Reading

Happy Wednesday! It has been very  hot  for quite a while here and not much big knitting has happend. After knitting 6 bath mitts with leftover cotton yarn I picked up this project again. It is Pimpelliese a scarf/shawl. I am using a yarn I bought on Ebay a while ago because I liked the color. I have already knitted two shawls with it and there is still plenty left over. I think it is TLC Baby Sparkles in mint. As for reading - I am re-reading the first book in a series by Glenna McReynolds - 'Kelch und  Schwert' - in German. The books are pure Summer escape reading, romance, dragons and maidens, witches and wizards, knights and princes. All the good people are beautiful and the bad people are ugly and smell bad. ;-)


Take a look at Ginny's blog to see what everyone else is reading and knitting this week.

Oh Maria, the scarf/shawl you are knitting is beautiful and I love the yarn. How is your garden doing?

You are a mighty fast knitter! I love the shawl and your book looks interesting, although I would need it in English ;)

So many people are knitting shawls lately...I love it! I think a shawl will be the first "for me" knit that I attempt.
