How are you this morning? I feel stiff (dampness in the air perhaps?) and not fully awake yet. Last night I had some grand plans for walking this morning, but I will wait and see how I feel and how the day feels once I am more awake. Right now it is in the mid-70's, but it feels still and close. Our forecast rain yesterday kind of passed by us to the South. We had a few sprinkles and that was it. Fletch will need to water the garden again today.
But here we are at Wednesday and it's time to link up with Kat and her Merry Band of Unravelers to talk making and reading.
A tiny amount has been knit on Fletcher's first Cafe Au Lait sock. Not much, but I am past the heel turn and the gusset decreases are complete, so I am cruising down the foot. The only problem is that my cruise speed is like 5 mph instead of 65 mph.
It almost gets lost against the tablecloth! Click to enlarge, as always.
Last night, rather than working on this sock, I finished knitting the scrubby dishcloth.
And a close up for looking at the texture:
Let me tell you, this is hateful yarn with which to knit! Everything about it (casting on, knitting, binding off, weaving in the ends) was a PITA. And the cloth? Man is it dense and heavy. I have not tried using it yet, so am not sure how it will feel/work once wet. The tropical colors are the only thing I enjoyed about this!
On the reading front, I am finally reading The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles. I had been in queue for this book for months and then boom I suddenly received an email from my library that it was ready to be picked up. I'm roughly 125 pages in (and it's long - 600 pages or so) and so far it is ok. Just ok. I loved Towles' previous two books (A Gentleman in Moscow and Rules of Civility), but this one doesn't seem to measure up to those two.
Waiting on my nightstand is Violeta by Isabel Allende which looks very good. I'm anxious to read this one, but will finish The Lincoln Highway first.
Well, time to pour another cup of coffee and attempt to wake up. Be sure to head over to Kat's to see what others are up to in the making and reading departments.
