Welcome to Unraveled Wednesday. How did it get to be the last week in June? I feel like I may have missed most of the month!!
Luckily there has been no unraveling this week. There also has not been a whole lot of knitting...but I did finish one old stitching WIP (posted that yesterday) and pulled another long-forgotten sampler out of the (huge) WIP pile and am working away on this:
This is Sailor's Huswif by Darlene O'Steen (now out of print). I love Adam & Eve samplers (despite my aversion to snakes). I had stopped working on this after the row of letters, so I am making progress. It is a very long sampler though with several sections after the current one (I need to add Adam & Eve to this section and then will move on to the next). I am just going to stitch the sampler, not make it into a huswif.
I am still knitting, but my gradient shawl is taking so very long to do!! And the color changes are too slow for my taste. When I manage to take a lunch break during the work week, that is what I work on. I need to step it up as I'm anxious to get on to other things.
On the reading front, I have finished 4 books for Summer Bingo. I'm in the middle of "The Nix" right now which I am finding ok. It's not a book that I feel compelled to pick up every chance I get, so it has been going slower than I like. I have several on my Kindle that I want to get to that I think will go faster. Even though it is Summer Bingo, I don't view it as a contest. One of my biggest pleasures with the whole Summer Bingo thing is seeing what others are reading and getting recommendations (because, you know, one can never have too big a TBR list - lol).
Cheers to a happy mid-week to everyone. What are you working on and reading these days?
