It's Wednesday, so I'm joining Ginny's Yarn Along.
I finished the mitts. I got a ton of knitting done in the car on the ways to and from Vermont, so I'm calling these Road Trip Mitts. The pattern is called Optimistic Mitts and its a free download off of Ravelry. The yarn is Malabrigo Twist in Burgandy.
Now onto the new projects. The moss will be for a Honey Cowl (off of Ravelry. What would I do without Ravelry?) And the squash is for (drumroll) my very first sweater!!!! I'm going to attempt the Francis Revisted Sweater on Ravelry. (Right now I'm just making a gauge swatch.)
I'm still reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and loving it. It's dense, like a thick chocolate cheesecake. The chapters are short, so I only read one or two and then I set it down and digest them. It's also unclear as to where the story is going - but in a good way. It's more like a puzzle than a normal novel. You get pieces of sky and pieces of mountain and pieces of a tree, etc. And slowly, slowly you put chunks together here and there, but you don't 100% know how they're all going to fit together as a whole. I can imagine that might be an issue for some people. I have such faith in the writing, though, that I know it's going to be a wonderful surprise! (At least, I hope so.) I'm half way through and I think it's fantastic so far!
