Knitting: My knitting this summer has become quite predictable. Yet another pair of socks are on my needles. This week I’m working on the Edwardian Boating socks with some handpainted Stroll yarn from Knit Picks. The long floats and linen stitch really make these a fun knit and make the most of the short color changes in handpainted yarns.
I have also cast on a simpler pattern for some socks for A who was dropping some not-so-subtle hints that he wanted another pair of socks. Picking patterns for him is always harder because I am apparently just drawn to patterns that are much too girly… but this is coming from the man who thinks even cables are too “dainty.”
Reading: I finally finished The Girl Who Fell Below Fairyland and Led the Revels There. It was such a fun read. I’m now starting on Miserere (I got lost in those ‘er’s) by Theresa Frohock which is a bit different than I thought it would be… but I’m only a few chapters in, so I’ll give it a chance.
Watching: I am in desperate need of some suggestions for Netflix viewing… I feel like I’ve watched everything, which I know isn’t true. If you’ve found something wonderful and have just been waiting to tell someone about it, here’s your chance – I’m up for anything!
Linking up with KCCO and yarn along.
