Tequila Sunrise has been put on the back burner temporarily while I knit a blue and white striped beany for a friend’s son. Mostly because I was getting a bit bored/frustrated at the slowness of progress with the sleeves so I’ve decided to have a little break. I’m using the Sam’s Hat pattern but adjusted to fit a larger head! I started it last night on dpns so I can knit it in the round and avoid sewing up, the rib is done and I’ve just started the stripes. It shouldn’t take long to make but I do wish I had 5 4mm dpns as it’s quite a lot of stitches for 4 needles.
I got a parcel of books from a friend in publishing this week and read Dolphin Song by Lauren St John on Thursday night in one sitting! I was sent a copy of Sock And Glove by Miyako Kanamori, which is an adorable book full of animals to make from socks and gloves, look here for pictures. I love the elephant, he’s wonderful!! Now I’m reading Angel by Cliff McNish – I’ve never read anything by him before but I like it so far and the cover is lovely.
