knitting and reading: 01/13/15

simple knits...
that's where i'm at.

one of my resolutions for 2015 is to make more gifts.
my needles are busy attempting some ideas for dishcloths.
so far, i'm only onto to my second piece 
but am excited to showcase the set 
once they are completed.

i'm still in the middle of re-reading the catcher in the rye
i had to stop because the copy my son lent me was missing a couple of pages,
so i'm waiting for a fresh copy from the library before i continue on holden's quest.

in the meantime, i finished me before you by jojo moyes.
it was a page turner... a love story like no other.
if you haven't read it yet,
i'm warning you now...you'll need a couple of boxes of tissues.

what are you knitting or reading lately?
care to share?

  1. I have a similar goal this year. I want to make more gifts, but I want to make them early, so I'm starting right now. Washcloths are next up on my list after I finish my little cozies. Hopping over from KCCO.

  2. it was a GOOD book wasn't it? I am hoping to start some new reads soon, but first I have to finish some current books. Lovely knitting :)

  3. "Pajama Casual" love that:) I just finished Anne Tyler's Digging to America. It was light and insightful. It made me laugh and made me think. Have a good week!

  4. Me Before You has been recommended to me by someone else, I will have to get it! Love the colours in your cloths.

  5. Darling cloths, the colors are really pretty!!

  6. I did a lot of dish cloths for Christmas presents this past year. They went over real well with some hand made soap.

  7. Dishcloths are such a fun thing to knit, I need to do that more. Thanks for the reminder. I will have to look up you books they sound great.

  8. Looking forward to the Me Before You film version. I love Catcher in the Rye. Need to revisit that one soon!

  9. I've made so many dishcloths some time ago that I don't dare to make another one - we don t have any more space in the kitchen shelf :D ...yours look great - I like the color:)

  10. Lovely! I'm going to put that book on my list!

  11. I'm usually knitting dishcloths in between my other knitting. It's nice to have a small portable project. I love the colours of yours!

  12. Even now that I'm branching off a bit and attempting a bit more challenging knitting, I always come back to dishcloths. I love making them... such an easy sense of accomplishment. To have a project start and be don in one day. It's awesome. :-) The colors are lovely.


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
