Unraveled Wednesday 7/8/20

Good Morning!

Here we are at Unraveled Wednesday.  Linking up with Kat to take a look at what everyone is making and reading these days.

If you read my blog earlier this week, you know there was a lot of unraveling - or rather tinking - over the long weekend.  I did, finally, knit some on the Hellebore Hitchhiker last night, but honestly it looks no different, so no picture.  I have yet to gather the energy to figure out what to do with my Tomfoolery sock.  But, I have been making some Granny Squares.  The first 6 of the next 25 are finished:


These are turning out to be so much fun - quick and colorful.  As long as I don't think about all the joining that I will have on my hands!!

On the reading front, I think I already mentioned that I finished Wild Game the next "Read With Us" book which we will be discussing in August.  I started reading "Fair Play" by Tove Jansson (I loved "The Summer Book" by her), but I can't really get into it.  Via Overdrive I have on my Kindle "The Woman Who Borrowed Memories" also by Tove Jansson, but I'm not sure I will bother with this right now. 

We are back to muggy weather - needed the AC last night to sleep.  Fletch has hung up the garlic to dry.


Hanging from the patio roof - hopefully it will dry ok despite our humidity!

I'm running into the office this morning to do a few things.  I don't expect to be there more than an hour or so.  Hope everyone's week is going well!

  1. Hello, Vera
    Your granny squares are so pretty and colorful. I love using the Overdrive with my Kindle. I love summer, but this humidity is awful. Have a great day!

  2. Your granny squares look great, and it's probable best to just crochet and not think about the future. It's definitely a long-term project! I'm a bit sorry to hear that the other Tove Jansson books weren't better. I've ordered The Winter Book from the UK, so I should be receiving it by winter!

  5. Ooh, more squares!
    I'm so jealous of your garlic. I will have to find a farmstand soon and get some for myself.

  9. The grannies are beautiful indeed. Have you thought of using the "join as you go" method of putting them together? That has quickly become my preferred method of joining granny squares.
    I finally got both legs finished on Dennis' socks late last night. I was determined. Ha! There has been very little knitting or crochet happening here the past couple of weeks. I still have lots of packing to do at the house and it all takes longer than I thought it would.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  15. Crochet is almost instant gratification, I think that is why I am so drawn to it lately. Granny squares are so much fun. Stay safe.
