It turns out my mind (and my body for that matter) no longer functions too well on less than two hours of sleep. I just watched Hillary’s concession speech and I’m in awe of how put together she looks and how well she spoke – because I can’t imagine she had any more sleep than I did. and surely she’s changed out of the clothes she wore yesterday, showered and dressed…which is more than I’ve managed so far… so no more whining. (and just as soon as I publish this post – a shower!)
I’ve been reading Yarn Along posts from a few of y’all (AsKatKnits, Juliann and of course Ginny herself) for a while now and I’m glad I planned to join in this week. Because an easy blog post is a good one right now!
I’m knitting VersaciKnits’ No Tails (which is really similar to Tails except…no tails :-), a cowl neck and long sleeves). Lots and lots of straight stockinette has been wonderful company; I had to set it aside last night when I got to the shaping – didn’t trust myself on those M1’s. But I’m ready to pick it up again this afternoon.
And I’m listening to In the Woods and loving it. I’m sure most of y’all have already read – and enjoyed – this one and the half dozen other books Tana French has written. I resisted her books for years because I thought they’d be too scary. Oh well – I’m glad I finally dove in and now I have backlist to keep me busy for a while.
Happy to finally join in with Ginny – and look forward to reading about lots of knitting and good books over there.
