Books,  Knitting

480 Pages to Go.

…yep, I started 11/23/63 on Saturday afternoon and to say I’m obsessed would be an understatement. What a story! All that reading doesn’t leave me much to share here in the way of “weekending”…except for a few knitting updates.

First, I finished the body of Lucinda – and blocked it. This photo is pre-blocking, but it doesn’t look much different now. It still needs two sleeves and a neckband and a bunch of ends woven in!

I also knit two blocks for Charlie’s Fly Away. (I’m not even going to let myself think about what I have to do once I finish knitting all sixteen blocks!)

And I started the Rivington Cowl, my (first?) project for Kirsten Kapur’s Summer Shawl KAL. I bought this yarn way back at Stitches South 2010, intending to knit Sara something for Georgia Tech game days. Well, I actually bought the gold skein that day and had Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark custom-dye the white skein. It’s a great white and gold pairing; but Sara subsequently told me she didn’t want anything like that so it’s been sitting in my stash since. I think it’s going to be perfect for a game day cowl for ME! and I should have enough of the gold leftover to knit another small cowl.

That’s about it… and that might be all you get until I finish those 480 pages!

Hope your week is off to a fine start… Happy Monday!
