This week I’m…
Knitting: My business casual socks are well underway thanks to some lovely, uninterrupted train knitting during my Montreal trip. I’m using a Turtlepurl yarn I picked up at the Toronto Knitter’s frolic and I love it and it’s sparkly goodness. I couldn’t resist the sparkly yarn trend that seems popular right now. Like a crazy bird, I was just drawn to it, and I haven’t looked back since. I also started the Belgravia tee I had been hoarding for summer in a luscious fuchsia that is excruciatingly hard to photograph. 
Reading: I started Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor while in Montreal last week after a friend recommended it to me. Luckily, I had already purchased it when it was on sale a few months ago. Woah – I love this book so far! The world of this novel and it’s characters are so fascinating and unique. I look forward to reading it each evening before bed. Books that inspire that sort of passion and excitement are what I search for in an escape novel. I can’t wait to see where it takes me next.
Listening: During my daily commute, I’ve taken to listening to podcasts. One of my favorites right now is The Bugle. It’s a British podcast with John Oliver (of Daily Show fame) and Andy Zaltzman (of no American fame?) which dives into lesser known news stories with the humor you’d expect from someone on The Daily Show. Many times I’ve had to keep myself from laughing out loud on the subway like a crazy person (I may be a crazy person, but everyone on the subway doesn’t need to know that). I recommend it if you like funny things, politics/news, and, also, funny things. Or just quirky British men.
Linking up with KCCO and yarn along

  1. Oh the sock yarn is gorgeous. I wish I could knit socks, scares me 🙂 I really like the sound of the podcast and I’m used to quirky British men so will be checking it out. Thanks for sharing.

    • Socks can be intimidating, but they really aren’t too bad to knit up. I started on dpns, but managing all those needles was a headache, so I learned magic loop and I haven’t looked back. There’s also lots of great online courses and youtube videos to help you find a way you are comfortable with. You can do it!

  2. Your projects are really beautiful. And the fuschia yarn is so pretty in the photos, even if it’s not showing as the right color. I just love those rich colors!

    • Thanks, Christine! Between the bright blue socks and the shocking fuchsia, my camera was having a hard time with white balance. I’ll blame the camera so I don’t feel like it’s my inability to correct for these things that makes photographing great colors difficult sometimes.
