Here's what I started knitting yesterday . . .
It's Kirsten Kapur's Colorwash Scarf from Wild Yarns, the Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 3. I've been planning this knit for weeks -- but wanted to finish a few other things before casting on. I had planned to only knit with the "wild" yarn" (some lovely stuff I picked up at Rhinebeck a couple of years ago), but after I saw Vicki's finished Colorwash Scarf, I decided to throw in a contrast color.
(And hoo boy . . . so glad I did! Because for the first several rows, I kept forgetting to pass the slipped stitch over. If I'd been using just the one color, I would have had to unravel constantly. With two colors, well . . . there is immediate accountability.) (And I only had to unravel twice.) (Full disclosure.)
Anyway. This design hits all my knitting-buttons: rhythmic pattern, fun color changes, and stripes. Those three features can keep my interest for hours at a time!
As for reading . . . right now I've got The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O'Neill, borrowed through Overdrive, on my iPad. (This title was on the Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction long list this year.) I've only just read the first 75 pages, so I'm guessing this will be my first Bingo square (although I haven't quite figured out which one yet. . . ).
Speaking of bingo, don't forget that Summer Book Bingo begins this Saturday, May 27. Check out the sidebar on Mary's blog to learn more. Grab your card and read along!
I'm joining along with Kat's Unraveled group today. See what everyone else is . . . unraveling . . . here.
