Joining Kat & friends again this week for Unraveled Wednesday!
I've been exclusively working on my Colorwash Scarf, and here's where it's at as of this afternoon:
I noticed a silly but large & noticeable mistake late last night, so took a little time this afternoon to rip & re-knit a few rows before taking it outside for a photo.
Here's a close up:
Um, yeah. This is one colorful Colorwash. I'm so glad I didn't rip it! It's probably one of the happiest things I've ever knit.
The plan is to finish & block this, then return to & finish the Brambling Shawl, and ONLY THEN will I begin to entertain notions of possibly knitting an adorable mouse... though first I should probably finish knitting the adorable rabbit that's been underway for a couple of years now... oh, and polar bear eyes (I'm getting closer).
Too many things + a little procrastination.
I finished listening to Lincoln in the Bardo just this morning. I am certain that I will be listening to it again, and I also desire a hard copy (my bookseller is on it).
It was just incredible -- one of the most unusual books I've ever read/heard, and also one of the best. I truly laughed out loud (while driving in my car, possibly being given a wide berth by fellow travelers), and also cried. The performances are stunning. I highly recommend this book (5 stars!) -- in whatever format you prefer (I believe it takes a little while to get comfortable with either).
I've listened to a little music and downloaded a new audio book today... but I'm not quite ready to move on, so will start it tomorrow.
What's it? Crossing To Safety by Wallace Stegner.
My interest was piqued after reading Carole's review and a few others. I'm always interested in good books with a Wisconsin angle, too!
Dark Matter is still the book on my nightstand!
What are you knitting & reading?
