Knitting: Two pairs of socks has been done since last time I had a One The Needles post. First was the Arne & Carlos socks for Hubby and yesterday I finished my son's Biohazard socks. A blog post will come later this week. So with those off the needles I had to cast on a new pair ;) I made Endre choose a skein in my stash and he picked a skein from Fyberspates that I have been saving for years. It looked SO much prettier in the skein than knit up... It's a very busy yarn, so I searched for a pattern and ended up with one from one of my books - Rib Fantastic. Not super happy about how the yarn and the pattern are knitting up, but I think I will knit a bit more before I decide to knit or frog...
I am also knitting on Eirin's kofte (cardigan). I hoped to finish it during Easter, but obviously that didn't happend... I have devided for sleeves and it should be a fast knit as the body is knitted in just the main colour. So hopefully I will have it done sometime next week, we'll see ;) I made her try it on the other day before she went to school, and luckily it fits her (photo below).
Drinking: Today is a strong black tea kind of day, so I am drinking Lipton's Yellow Label.
Reading: I have been reading in this brick of a book since the beginning of December last year... And now I am finally at the end with just one last chapter. Just in time for the new season of the Game of Thrones series :) I know the first episode was out on Monday, but Hubby and I are going to watch it this weekend :) And what a book it has been! Can't wait to read the next one.
In the aftermath of a colossal battle, Daenerys Targaryen rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way east--with new allies who may not be the ragtag band they seem. And in the frozen north, Jon Snow confronts creatures from beyond the Wall of ice and stone, and powerful foes from within the Night's Watch. In a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics lead a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, to the greatest dance of all. - From Goodreads -What are you knitting and reading this week?
