Knitting and Reading Updates

waving lace sock

I finally finished the first sock - Waving Lace- from Favorite Socks. I've only been knitting it since November! It took quite a back seat to other projects and pneumonia. I finished it over vacation- while in Cornwall, UK! (More on that in another post.) If I'd been allowed to knit on the plane I would have gotten the 2nd sock underway. Alas, British Air doesn't let you knit on their planes.

Green river tunic

I've been working on the Valley Yarns pattern, Green River Tunic, too. This is the back. I've almost finished the front too - just the right bodice left to do, and then short sleeves. It's a fast, easy knit.

I also read two more books: Third Strike by William Tapply and Philip R. Craig, and The Woman Next Door by Barbara Delinksy. I liked the first and was bored with the second.

I'm not terribly fond of Delinsky either. I've found that I really like some of her books and don't like others, so that makes her an unreliable place to put my money or my time.

Is this tunic for you? Pretty color! Details please!
I am looking forward to hearing more about your trip.

Cathy,
Yes, I'm making this for myself. It's from a Valley Yarns pattern from WEBs. You can find a picture of the pattern in my Ravelry notebook. I'm dswgr6 there too.
