I’m joining with Kat this week to talk about what I’m knitting and reading.
First up, this hat. Sigh. Did I say a few weeks ago that I thought I had the hang of brioche stitch? Talk about famous last words! I mean, I suppose I do (mostly) have the hang of going round and round with this but when it came time for the crown decreases . . . not so much. I knew I had messed it up but I sort of kept going anyway because it pretty much looked okay. And then I dropped a stitch on one of those 3 stitch decreases and the whole thing got wonky and I wound up ripping back. I thought I’d only have to go back to where I started the decrease but, as has been the case with this hat from the beginning, I had to go back much further before I was able to move forward again. I’m just at the point where I can start the decreases again. Pray for me, mmmmkay?
As for reading, it’s been all cozy mystery books all the time for the last week or so. My brain has just been mush when it comes to reading concentration lately so I’m giving myself a break and taking things easy.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
