I realized on Monday that my husband's birthday is rapidly approaching. So I started making him a Koolhaas (pattern by Jared Flood). I fell in love with the Koolhaas that Joy at You Know How We're An Art Family made last week, so I was sold on making one for my husband. The only appropriate yarn I had on hand is a black superwash sock yarn, so I've doubled it up and I'm hoping for the best. So far so good. But my goodness is black difficult to photograph!
I picked up We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson based on Erin at Wild Whisper's recommendation. I love suspenseful stories and Shirley Jackson too. Her book The Haunting of Hill House is fantastic.
Thanks for all of your recommendations last week on a toddler girl's sweater. I've decided on In Threes and I'm just waiting for the yarn to arrive.
What are you knitting and reading this week? Thanks to Ginny at small things for hosting another yarn along.
