Unraveled Wednesday: Hexies All The Time

I'm joining Kat & the Unravelers today to share what I'm knitting crocheting and reading!

CROCHETING:

The last time I shared an "official" Unraveled Wednesday blanket update, I was seven rows in, and now I'm three hexies away from finishing Row #11!

I am still gobsmacked that it's working so well. I love it more and more! There are some very weird color combos in a few of those hexagons... there are also many that are perfection, and often I'm surprised. Details & more pics on my Ravelry project page if you're curious.

READING:

I will likely finish listening to Futureproof: 9 Rules for Humans in the Age of Automation by Kevin Roose today. It's not my usual type of book, but it's interesting and enlightening, even for someone at little risk of losing her job to a computer. AI (Artificial Intelligence) touches our lives every single day in a myriad of ways and, while "controlling" may be too harsh, it (algorithms, data, analysis) definitely influences us in ways we might not even realize.

Perhaps then I will get back to & finish The Midnight Library, I know I'm not the only one who found it a bit of a slog through the middle.

Though I should probably start reading Shuggie Bain!  

And An American Quilt: Unfolding A Story of Family & Slavery is still on my nightstand. I used to read a little every night, but lately I've been prioritizing sleep (sort of, because I'm still a night owl and stay up too late) over reading.

Your Hexie project is just so fun and makes me smile every time I see it. LOVE!!!

I tried to read Midnight Library and could not get into it AL ALL. An American Quilt still appeals to me (not so much the other book)...but I find if I get into bed and read for a bit it is always a very small bit before my eyes close. Of course there are those other nights (so many of them) where sleep alludes me. Oh well, at least I enjoy napping:)

Another big fan of your hexie project here, and I love that it's big enough to cover little ones' toes. I'm off to look for Futureproof at a library near me. It sounds interesting, especially the ways that AI affects us that we may not even be aware of.

I also tried to read The Midnight Library and put it down. I read myself to sleep every night.

P.S. The blanket is bright and beautiful. Very fun.

Every time you post a hexie blanket project picture, I love it more. I think the really surprising color combinations are what makes it so wonderful!

That hexie blanket is just awesome, Vicki! (Tempting, tempting . . . )

I am delighted by the colors in your hexie blanket. Honestly, between that and Cara's temperature circles, it's amazing I haven't started another crochet project ;-)
