Whoa, Wednesday evening already. Today was the one day this month where I had nowhere to be but home, and as anyone who has read this blog more than once would know, that meant I had Grand Plans. and I did check off quite a few things on my to-do list. I also showered, dressed and put on make-up 🙂 Most of today was not about knitting or reading (although wading through my email inbox does involve a bit of reading), so pausing at 5 o’clock to share a bit about both feels nice.
The pink Olive Leaf Cardigan is progressing … slowly. 300+ stitches per row, even in mostly stockinette is … slow. Maybe next week I’ll be able to share “the sleeve split!” Meanwhile, I’ve had an urge to knit myself a Christmas sweater. something red. I fell hard for Thea Colman’s Hard Cider and ordered what I hope is good red Rowan Felted Tweed to knit it with … meanwhile, I’m working on the Hard Cider cocktail.
I also finished the socks for my momand I’m sure she’ll be fine with me sharing the delightful email exchange that followed me leaving them, wrapped in tissue paper, when I last visited.
I certainly don’t want her to be “rationing wear”!
The big news on the book front is that I joined Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Bookclub. I’d been on the fence for months, but the combination of Celine as the November pick and a slight price increase effective Nov 1 … well … I am still figuring out all the forum stuff, but the content from Anne is wonderful.
This dovetails nicely with my goal to be more present on Instagram. and also to read better 🙂
I downloaded and started The Starless Sea yesterday and only wish I could listen more … it’s a book lover’s book for sure (and I’m just a few hours in).
What are you unraveling this week?
Thank you to Kat for hosting us!
