It’s been almost 6 weeks since I last participated in Work in Progress Wednesday and Yarn Along. Life got very busy and I was mostly working on secret projects, so there was nothing too exciting to share. I’m happy to be back with a (very) little something and am looking forward to checking out what everyone else is up to, also.
You may remember this swatch from June…
I didn’t love any of the three cable patterns I tried out on the swatch, and after unraveling it, realized that a superwash wool was probably a better choice for the intended recipient. So now I’m working on an entirely new pattern with a totally different yarn that I won in a giveaway on Robyn Chachula’s blog.
As far as reading, I finished up How To Love Your Job Or Find A New One by Joanna Penn a few weeks ago. I love her blog and was very excited to receive a review copy. (You can read my review here.) Right now, I’m about a third of the way through The Last Man by Mary Shelley. Mary and her mother are two of my favorite historical figures, and Frankenstein is one of my favorite books of all time. So far, I’m loving the experience of being immersed in Mary Shelley’s “future,” which seems to me so clearly in the past! (I especially love how the super futuristic mode of transport is the “sailing balloon.”) Nonetheless, I’ve been completely sucked into the book and have been snatching little reads every night.
