I'm also working on a simple K2P2 scarf for my sister-in-law.
The book that I'm about to start reading is called The Dirty Life by: Kirstin Kimball. It was recommended to me by my Mom. She knows me pretty well so she knows what books I'll enjoy.
I don't understand how all of you knit almost a whole sweater and manage to find reading time! How do you do it?
