A little knitting progress

I’ve been jumpy with my knitting this week. I’ve worked a little on this and a little on that, so my pictures aren’t that exciting, but I still have pictures today.

Here is the felted lunch bag I’m working on for my mom:

I had to order some more Kureyon for it, since the two skeins in my stash were not enough. I really don’t know what I was thinking when I cast on for it with my measly two skeins. BUT, I got super lucky, as an Ebay seller had three skeins for sale in the same dyelot. Whew!

Here is my brown Raglan:

I’m gaining ground slowly but surely.

The good news, is that my replacement Denise cable arrived this week; that’s a big relief off my shoulders, so I can bring them on our trip! I’m trying to determine what projects I’ll take with me. I already packed 2 balls of Knitpicks Parade for a pair of socks for me. I’m not sure what else to bring… I’m thinking a simple scarf of some sort. I cast on for a boring garter stitch out of the Debbie Bliss Aran Tweed I bought at the LYS a month or so ago (go figure that Elann is selling it now), but I think I might frog and try the wavy scarf from Knitty. Rox’s looks great, but I’m not sure it’s the right choice for this yarn… I probably don’t have enough either… I only have 3 skeins… Decisions Decisions!

I have picked out my vacation reading, however. I’ve already packed Middlesex. I’ve been meaning to read it for a while, and the Detroit-area references intrigue me as well.

In other reading news, I finished Tess of the D’Urbervilles and while I greatly enjoyed it, I really wish I hadn’t read the inside cover before reading it. Knowing Thomas Hardy’s style, I knew it wouldn’t be uplifting, but the inside cover gave the entire story away! How dare they. I also picked up and read Ash Wednesday by Ethan Hawke (yep, he writes books!). It was surprisingly decent. I had read his first book, The Hottest State back in college, but I don’t really remember it much.

It looks to be great fun, especially as I’m in a classics frame of mind right now. I just started The Return of the Native (and made sure to get a copy that didn’t give away the ending!). I also picked up A Tree Grows in Brooklyn at the library this morning.

I’m looking forward to the new Pride and Prejudice movie, as well, although I don’t know if it can compete with the fanstastic version already out there:

Sigh. I love that movie (and book)!

Back to getting my list done for today. Lots of things left to do before we leave!
