In the category of fun mail to receive, squishy mail has a place at the top of my list. I just love coming home to a squishy package with my name on it. This week I received a couple squishy envelopes that mean I have some fun knitting time ahead.
Knitting: I am almost finished with my Ariel sweater. I just have a bit left on one of the sleeves and then it’ll be ready for blocking. As it finishes up, I’m gearing up to start a new sweater and am having fun swatching and planning as I prepare to cast on.
Reading: I’ve set Prince of Thorns aside for now. I don’t know if it was my mood or the book, but we weren’t clicking last week. I’ll give it another try later. For now I’m reading Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, the second book in the Throne of Glass series. I enjoyed the first book, so I decided to play it safe and pick up something I was almost certain to enjoy. Sometimes I just really need the certainty of a good book to look to each day.
Watching: This past week, Andy and I went to see the Shaun the Sheep Movie because I’m really just a little kid in a grown up body and because I love, love, love Aardman Studios. So I’ll basically watch anything they make. And, as expected, the movie was adorable, enjoyable, and just fun. I’ve also been re-watching Downton Abbey in preparation for the last season coming up (I don’t want to think about a world without Downton…).
Linking up with KCCO and yarn along.
