Knitting: Lately, much of my knitting time has been devoted to my Golden Clarity cardigan, which just needs a few final touches. Like sleeves. You may be thinking to yourself, “Wait, where did this cardigan come from? Wasn’t she just working on a different one. And now there’s like a whole new cardigan that just materialized in a week’s time.” Part of me wants to let you keep thinking that I am some sort of knitting wizard, that I can just click my heels together three times and a hand knit sweater appears. That I’m the fastest knitter in the
west east. Be awed and amazed at my knitting prowess.
But in reality, I started this cardigan a long long time ago and it sadly has sat abandoned and uncompleted until I could feel the tinge of fall coming along and knew it would get some wear soon. I think all the stockinette got to me and my brain couldn’t process it. But after work, sometimes all I want is just boring, uneventful stockinette. So this cardigan is getting some love again (hopefully enough to make it off the needles and into my closet).
Reading: Still working on Sea of Shadows. I don’t really have much to say about it. It’s a decent YA fantasy, but it’s not riveting and the writing is a little… eh. But it’s not enough of an ‘eh’ to make me read something else. Plus, all the good stuff I want to read I’m having to wait on for a library copy (must. not. buy. more. books.). So until I move up from spot 967 out of 1000 (maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but that’s how it feels), I shall keep chugging on Sea of Shadows.
Watching: The third season of “Call the Midwife.” Such a good little show that I feel is a bit under appreciated, especially compared to something like Downton Abbey (which I also love).
Linking up with KCCO and yarn along.
