It’s been a busy week as I settle into the new routine of the semester. I’ve managed to sneak in knitting here and there for an hour or two when I get home from work. Slow progress is being made, but at least it is being made. I hope that once I get more into the flow of things, I can fit in a bit more ‘me’ time, but that may be wishful thinking.
Knitting: I finished up the body of my Northern Neuk sweater and have started on the first sleeve. It’s easy knitting – stockinette in the round – so it’s great for couch knitting when I’m tired from the day. I’m almost done with the first of my January socks, too, almost exactly on schedule for where I need to be if they are going to be finished this month. They only get knit on during my commute, so I may pay a little more attention to them if I fall behind.
Reading: I have about 20 pages left of Eleanor & Park. It has been such a pleasurable read that I have just breezed through it. The writing is honest and beautiful in its simplicity, that you are just sucked into these characters as their lives become so entwined. I often found myself smiling while reading, eagerly eavesdropping as the characters discovered each other, and by doing so, discovered themselves. I’m not sure what I will pick up next – maybe something more fantastical.
Watching: I’m on a total crime kick lately. I’m really enjoying the current season of The Good Wife, and I’m excited that the second season of Broadchurch has returned (and is already so stressful!). I’m also making my way through the very creepy The Fall on Netflix – it has a bit of a slow build, but it gets under your skin.
As always, linking up with KCCO and yarn along.
