Melissa!

You are a beautiful knitter as you are an eloquent writer - and speedracer reader!
You so don't want my reading suggestion! I am reading both the 11th book of "The Series of Unforunate Events" and a book on Jacqueline Du Pre.

I love the subtleness of the grey yarn and at first, I thought you were knitting the "Wool Peddler's Shawl". I knit it a few years ago and it has that beautiful pattern!
Why I think Rosalie would love the comfort of the shawl, but perhaps it might end up strangling Nigel! Then it would be an entirely different story!

Delightful dovegrey knitting and post. You are a lovely writer Karen. I look forward to seeing the finished product. The yarn looks so soft. I thought of Cornflower when I noticed the 1940's movie, Mrs. Miniver, was on television the other day. Unfortunately, I only caught a snippet of it. I may just have to read the book.

I love the way that shawl looks, so soft. The way I've solved the reading/knitting problem is by listening to audio books while working away.

I am catching up after a few days away so let me say 1) the socks look lovely; 2) I agree with you, re: The Memory Keeper's Daughter; 3) I try to read while knitting with predictable results.... Seriously, the Memory Keeper has gone from nightstand to satchel and back again -- unlike Mrs. Miniver. I find myself struggling with it, the writing notwithstanding, and have even sneaked ahead, a sure sign of impatience. So last night, I dipped into "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm"....

I stitch (though I read more) and I sometimes wish I could read and stitch at the same time, but then that wouldn't work at all well...I have The Shuttle out from the library--I am looking forward to starting it!

Lacy patterns, handspun cashmere… it all looks so lovely. I wish I could read and knit at the same time, too. Alas, I can't even knit stockinette without looking.

Charity

This is a really beautiful stitch pattern, and truly lovely yarn! How wonderful. :0)
