Good Morning All,
It is another grey, cold day here in Eastern PA. One wonders if Spring will ever arrive. We are beginning to think that Winter will just hang around for a bit longer and then suddenly it will be 80 degrees and no Spring at all. Hoping that will not be the case.
I'm still dragging a bit, feeling tired and run down. Part of it, I'm sure, is due to the uninspiring weather. And, I think part of it is due to a new medication I started last week (and have now stopped taking). But, I did manage to get some new knitting done on Easter before we left to go to Colin & Mailing's for dinner.
Here is my start on the Medallion Lace Sock. It's an easy pattern (if I don't mess it up - lol) and I think it will be very pretty.
The Barn Cat yarn is so pretty and soft. I'm enjoying knitting this. Obviously it's mostly ribbing so far with a bit of the pattern (I believe I managed to get through 6 or 8 rows of the pattern so far...I can't remember exactly).
And here is the start to my Lonely Tree Shawl:
This is about 20 rows. I love the color "Weathered Green" which is sort of a greyish-green. The yarn (Green Mountain Spinnery Cotton comfort - 80% wool and 20% cotton) is a bit "rougher" than I am accustomed to using, but I believe it will provide the warmth I want with this shawl and so far it's not bothering my hands to knit with it.
On the reading front, I finished The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin. I'll give it 4 stars. Parts of it dragged on and on for me - I think it could have been tightened up a bit, but overall it was good. I've started reading "Billionaire Blend" by Cleo Coyle (one of the Coffeehouse Mystery Books). This is not great literature friends, but it is an easy and fast read which is exactly what I was looking for at the moment. Not sure if I will read any more of these, but time will tell.
Hope everyone's week is going well so far.
