Thank you all so much for your kind remarks on my Match and Move. More importantly, thanks for your words of comfort for Colin. He saw a doctor yesterday and now has to have blood work done. So the waiting game will go on a bit. We'll see him Thursday evening - he is stopping by before having dinner with a friend. And, he and Mailing are taking us out to lunch on Saturday (for Mother's Day - the place was totally booked on Sunday).
Well, here we are mid-week already and it is Unraveled Wednesday. Joining Kat and friends to talk about making and reading. Obviously, Match & Move is finis!!! And no unraveling necessary. Now I am back to working on the socks I started the other week. Not much progress, but a tiny bit.
Picture is a bit blurry - sorry. Believe it or not, the top ribbing is 15 rows and so far the leg is 60 rows. It looks shorter than usual to me, but I think this particular pattern (Spring Socks) is making them pucker a bit. I will just let them be shorter - lol. I hope to start on the heel flap at lunch today.
I've been so tired each evening this week (getting back to work is HARD), so I only knit about 12 rows last night. Then I pulled out the gradient yarn I bought at the Steel City Fiber Festival. A free pattern came with the yarn, but I think I may troll Ravelry today for another gradient yarn shawl. Any suggestions?
Can't get this one to turn the right way. This yarn is 100% wool, fingering weight and I think a shawl in this will look great with jeans.
On the reading front, I finished Commonwealth by Ann Patchett. I generally like her writing a lot, but I had some trouble with this book. Time periods kept going back and forth and there were so many characters. The writing was still good, but the layout of the book was difficult for me. I'm back to reading "A Year of Living Danishly" which I'm finding to be ok. Just ok. It's tedious in places and not all that interesting to me. I think it could have been condensed into a much shorter book and been more enjoyable in my opinion. Am waiting for a bunch of books at the library and am gearing up for Book Bingo hosted by Mary.
What are you working on and what are you reading/listening to?
