In stark contrast with yesterday’s most wordy post, today’s is heavy on the photos. Knock on wood, but this past week was all about forward progress. I finished a few things (two books and two knitting projects – more on those later) and started a few more. First up, the books – I’m honing in on my first bingo with that fourth row.
I’m listening to (and reading) A Full Life. Carter narrates the audio and I highly recommend it (especially if you have that Audiobook narrated by the author square). The “audio” is actually eight CDs borrowed from the library and the only CD player I have is in my car, so (thankfully!) it’s taking a little while to listen. I’m filling in with the book (also borrowed from the library) and so glad I have both. The book contains illustrations of Carter’s paintings and photographs that really enhance the material.
I’m also listening to The Cold Dish. This is the first book in the Longmire series (now on TV) and my dad loved it. I’m happy to finally be discovering it for myself.
On the knitting front, I cast on the Quintissential Cardigan on Sunday. It’s knit in pieces so I started with a sleeve (you know, a really BIG swatch). Happy to report it blocked out to gauge and I started the second sleeve today (seen in progress above).
I also swatched for Tide Chart and hope to get that started for real tomorrow.
I did make a little progress with the CDs and that second sleeve today … because I visited Katie and Sam! This is the first time I’ve seen him in person since our lake trip. He’s scooting around like crazy. and still just as happy and willing to ham it up for the camera.
…and now I have a new lock screen photo.
Joining in today with Kat and crew. Look forward to seeing what y’all are reading and knitting!
