Happy Veteran’s Day to the all of you in the U.S., happy Remembrance Day to those of you in Canada, and happy Armistice Day in the U.K.!
It’s also sorta kinda maybe my birthday today, too. It’ll be the last birthday of my 20’s. That’s just a little bit scary while still being exciting.
It has been so long since I’ve done a weekly update. Things have been busy at work as I prepare for two presentations at an upcoming conference, but there still has been lots and lots of knitting going on. Some of it is a tad bit of a secret (which, if you know any knitwear designers is a very exciting term because while it means I can’t share anything with you right now, it means fun stuff is coming up in the near future), but there’s plenty which I can share, too.
I’m also chugging away on the body of a new cardigan. I have completely fallen in love with SweetGeorgia‘s Tough Love Sock yarn. It is such a pleasure to knit with and produces some very beautiful, and durable, garments. I’m a wee bit obsessed with the mini bobble stitch, which is not only fun to knit, but just fun to look at. So this is my own funky, fun take on the standard striped cardigan – with wee bobbles.
As for reading, most of it has been scientific papers (yuck!) as I work up a manuscript and those aforementioned presentations (it helps if you know what you are talking about when you speak to a room full of scientists). But in my downtime I’ve been grabbing a few pages of Heir of Midnight, the third novel in the Throne of Glass series.
Linking up with KCCO and yarn along.
