Joining Kat & the Unravelers today!
Um... this just in:
WOW!!! This is so great! All the love for Colbert...
I haven't been doing much actual knitting, but I am working on a pair of socks... it's even Christmas knitting!
I am still listening to to Lincoln in the Bardo... I'm enjoying it the second time around, though not a lot of listening is happening.
The Summer Walkers: Travelling People and Pearl-Fishers in the Highlands of Scotland is on my nightstand.
This book was a gift from Kate a while back and I've finally made it a priority -- so glad I did. It's loaded with photos and the stories are fascinating.
I have continued my 100-day project, though I did veer from the Car Jacket to work on fixing another project:
This is an Alabama Chanin A-line Tunic that I finished two years ago (it made it's debut at La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona!). The Alabama Chanin A-line is my favorite shape -- it's incredibly flattering -- and I love this tunic... except for the areas where I used gray thread instead of black. I thought it was a good idea at the time, but it's too contrast-y (to me). Every time I'd see it in my closet, I'd think, "Oh, I love that top... but I hate that contrast-y stitching." So I finally decided to do something about it!
It's not easy, given that it has been worn and washed a few times already, but I can't wait to wear it again! I've done the small flower at the shoulder and I think, for now, I'm going to finish that area and just re-do the smaller elements at the top of the big flower on the lower-left -- that might be just enough! I can always re-do some more.
