Unraveled Wednesday: 7 Rows In

I'm joining Kat & the Unravelers today (or not) to share what I'm knitting crocheting and reading!

CROCHETING:

I'm one motif shy of 7 rows complete! I started to join the last one in (top left) last night and, whoa... that's one loosey-goosey circle and way too many stitches in the end!

Often, I fudge, but this one's getting a rip & re-do.

READING:

I am listening to The Midnight Library, and I am really enjoying Carey Mulligan's performance, but I'm tiring of the story... I have about 3 hours to go, but taking a short break for this:

Futureproof: 9 Rules for Humans in the Age of Automation by Kevin Roose. Kate just finished reading -- and recommending -- it, Rusty nabbed her hard copy, and I just downloaded the audio book. Looking forward to it. Kate can't stop talking about it!

An American Quilt: Unfolding A Story of Family & Slavery is still my bedtime reading. I'm slow.

What are you making and reading?

Had you been drinking wine before you crocheted that hexie? It is growing beautifully.
I'm next on the list for the midnight library.
I just finished 3 audiobooks by Allen Eskans. Very interesting and weird mysteries that take place in Minneapolis. I also listened to the Book charmer, which I really enjoyed. The Paris Library was so boring I gave up on it. My arthritis is acting up so I'm not getting a lot of knitting done-boohoo.
Enuf of my rambling- you asked so I answered.

I like all of the colors in your crochet afghan, but that too-many-stitches cobalt circle is beautiful (even if slightly wonky)! I'm going to take a look at Futureproof; it sounds interesting. Thanks for the recommendation.

Mary

all those circles - and all joined together! nothing I'm doing is anywhere near that interesting or exciting! I don't even have a book recommendation to share. but I did just ask my library to order that Kevin Roose title!

Vera

I just love your crochet! Even the wonky one. Lovely colors all together and it is just plain FUN! Now I want to look at my library for An American Quilt (which is more appealing to me than the Rooses book).

Carole

I read The Midnight Library and it's good but not as good as I hoped it would be, I found it a little tedious in the middle. I'm off to investigate Futureproof! How long does it take to crochet a circle? It seems like it must be a fast process to me but I haven't done enough crochet to really know. Hopefully you're back on track.

The colors in your crochet blanket make me so happy. I love how varied and random they are!

Kat

Your blanket is truly a thing of joy! I am off to find Futureproof as well! Thank you :)

That sounds like a fascinating book! (Thanks, Kate, for the rec.) And I think crocheting is MADE for fudging. (Although sometimes . . . things are just too wonky to fudge, even with crocheting.) That blanket is going to be stupendous! How big are you planning to make it????
