Knitting: I'm at the last part of the yoke of my sweater. I've been trying it on and it's tight, but it does fit. Now I'm guestimating how to make a wide turtleneck (is that the right way to explain this? I want something that looks like a cowl on a sweater) with a little help from Elizabeth Zimmermann (Knitting without tears, I love that book).
Reading: Peter Tremayne, The Leper's bell. My father loves these historic mysteries and keeps recommending them to me. This is the second one I'm reading and I'm still not sure if I share his opinion. I like the historic information that is added throughout the book (it's set in Ireland in the Early Middle Ages), but sometimes it feels like it doesn't really add to the story, but instead holds it up. Also I miss a feeling of connection to the main character. She doesn't feel real to me. But then again, it's quite entertaining. I am curious who stole the baby and why, so I'm sure I will finish it.
So what are you knitting and reading?
