WIP Wednesday

Hello Knitters.

Well, I started and stopped reading two books this week. I tried to read God of Small Things. I found it to be a bit slow moving and boring. I then moved on to The Disappearing Spoon. While I love the idea of reading about the drama happening while periodic elements were being discovered, the book spent too much time on explaining general chemistry. I have enough chemistry from work, I do not need it spilling over into my novels.

I am on the last section of the baby blanket. The pattern is a Drops pattern. Here is the Ravelry link. This pattern started of as a great challenge for me. As I work through the pattern, it is becoming easier. The edging is the hardest part and the last section. Hopefully, it is easier the second time around.
I have also been working on my Zigzagular socks. I love these socks. I love the yarn. Everything about them makes me smile.
 My son's birthday is coming up in March. He loves knitted socks and I cannot wait to surprise him with another pair. I started the Campfire socks using size 1 needles to make a child's size sock.
Finally, the book I requested at the library came in, Botanical Knits 2. I wanted to see the pattern for the bare branches pattern. I have never made a sweater in my size. This beautiful pattern caught my eye and I think I want to give it a whirl...

Enjoy your Wednesday knitters.
