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.
