In between

This post contains affiliate links.

I am at that weird place in between projects and I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do next.  The temperature finally cooled down and I finished the Bruges lace scarf I was making for my friend (more details coming on Friday).

I’ve made some progress on my Pineapple Doily Shawl since my last update, but I think I’m going to hibernate it until the fall.

My Pineapple Doily Shawl so far.

I started making this along with my crochet class, and since we have the summer off, I will probably put it aside until the class starts again in September.  I have two students who didn’t finish their shawls and still want to work on it, so it seems like a fun CAL for us to do in class.

I’m really just starting the pineapples.

As for my cabled beanie project, I decided that I really didn’t like any of the stitches I swatched.

It’s back to the beginning with this project.

I’ve been thinking of trying a stitch pattern from my newest cable book, Power Cables by Lily Chin.

And I’m still trying out different motifs for the bedspread I’m planning to make for my mom’s milestone birthday in February.

This is motif 14 from one of my Japanese stitch guides, Lace Crochet Best Pattern 238.

So as you can see, I don’t have anything that I’m really working on right now.  I think the heat over the weekend and the humidity has also made me less interested in crocheting some big project.  Hopefully, I’ll have something more to share next week.

I did manage to do a lot of reading over the weekend, and I finished The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood.  (I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads, but didn’t write a review yet.  I’m excited to hear there will be a third installment in this series.)  MC and I saw an interesting show on H.G. Wells (part of the Prophets of Science Fiction series on the Science Channel), so I decided to pick up an H.G. Wells book next. I’ve already read The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, and The Invisible Man, so I borrowed The Country of the Blind, and Other Stories from the New York Public Library.  I’m looking forward to reading his short stories.
