It’s Wednesday … and that means I’m joining in with Kat and crew for a quick update on what I’m making and reading.This was the scene at my kitchen counter just before I pulled out my laptop to write this post. I wasn’t kidding about the crocheting and I’ll bet you’d also be surprised to know that the big ball of yarn is Red Heart. It’s called Bunches of Hugs and it seems perfect for a prayer shawl!
Then there’s the beginning of a sock with a ball of yarn I bought in Linz, Austria. This yarn is labeled DK I’m happy to report – it is DK 🙂
And in the back, Calyx, now with a neckband underway. The window for wearing a cotton sweater is closing quickly; I’m really hoping I can finish this in time!
On the book front, I’m listening to Lethal White (so far very good) and reading The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock. With all the making, a real book doesn’t get much of my attention unless it’s very good. I’m almost halfway through this one and it’s definitely worth setting aside the hook and needles (at least for half an hour every day)!
Today is an Opera Day. The program is Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West. This one is new to me and (I think) to my mom … I’m really curious to see how Goldrush era California translates to Italian! (edited: oops! today’s performance is actually Samson et Dalila … Italian Wild West is next week!)
Have a good one!
