Here’s a peak at one of the projects I’m working on this week: a striped version of the hitchhiker scarf. It’s been my commuting project this week, and (besides meaning I’m headed home) I’ve really looked forward to working on it each day. The yarn is the Misti Alpaca Pima Cotton & Silk blend I bought at the Knitter’s Frolic this past weekend. I am in love. It’s drapey (people say that about yarn, right?) and squishy and soft, and I love the vivid colors.
Knitting: The hitchhiker shawl travels with me to and from work each day. I’m also casting on a pair of My Cup of Tea socks tonight, as I just finished my last pair of socks yesterday (more info on Friday).
Reading: About halfway through The Girl Who Fell Below Fairyland… My slow progress is not a reflection of the quality of this piece, just my busy schedule.
Watching: Game of Thrones, season 3. I’m behind, but not spoiler free. Also, my drive to stay on top of this series is diminished by my deep seated resentment towards it. I am still not over the fact that it has such popularity when the superior series Rome is often overlooked.
