I love to read and I love to knit but I can't do both at the same time. When I read I feel like I'm cheating on my knitting time but this is a really good book. The author shares her journey in finding balance in life. Isn't it ironic that I feel conflicted about reading about balance when I could be knitting, working when I could be knitting, cleaning when I could be knitting -- the list goes on and on. I guess I need to work on my knitting balance.

Cable Luxe Maxi

Wow. It's been two weeks since my last post. Work has been demanding alot of my time with long hours, travel and stress. Usually knitting balances my stress but this project of cables only seemed to add to it all. I started this dress back in October and I'm relieved it's finally done. I'm not a fan of cables - or was it the fact that this huge project seemed like I was knitting two afghans with no end in sight?? Remember, I debated the yarn choice (Lion Brand Wool Ease) but I'm so happy with the results and it washes well and will wear well to-boot. This is a favorite.
