This week…

Knitting: Most of my knitting progress has been on my Keynote cardigan, which, color and detailing has a nice vintage vibe that I’m loving. I finished the body last night and am starting on the first sleeve. It’s a relatively simple knit, but the faux cables created by the simple lace panels keep things interesting. In green, the lace reminds me of crawling vines. I’m sure it will be even lovelier once everything is blocked. I’ve also cast on for my Guernsey wrap but have only worked a few of the pattern repeats so far. Since I plan on using it as a big snuggly scarf in the winter, I’m not in too much of a hurry to get it finished soon, even though it is a fun knit.

Reading: Still working on The Coldest Girl in Cold Town which is keeping me entertained. I also added The Magician’s Land to my library wait list. It’s the final book in The Magicians series by Lev Grossman and was just released last week. I’m really excited to see how this series ends as I’ve been following it since 2011 – the characters and setting just stick with you. If you grew up with the Narnia books or Harry Potter, I recommend this series – they offer a different take on growing up with magic and dreaming of fantastical places that roots them a bit more in reality and the consequences of such scenarios in the real world.

Watching: Lately I’ve been going through LOST and rewatching the whole series (it’s taking a while). I’ve also been watching the first two seasons of Orphan Black, which I am liking a lot. I’m always up for series that are smart and unpredictable. For a science nerd, the show is fun (although some of the science they mention is a little iffy….).

Linking up with KCCO and yarn along
