Reading and Knitting

I’m currently enthralled with three books: Anthony Horowitz’s Magpie Murders, which I’m listening to on audio and which is a mystery set inside a mystery; Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer, about the ill effects of an encounter between our favorite Amazon and a descendent of Helen of Troy; and Gail Honeyman’s Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, about a young woman who survived a horrific event as a child and who is now looking for love. It took me a bit to get into, but it’s now occupying a good amount of my brain.

The knitting is the sock I cast on during the play on Saturday. It’s Marathon North Pole yarn, which I’ve knit from previously, and which is doing some interesting wavy things in the jacquard section of the sparkly self-striping yarn.

Visit As Kat Knits to see what other folks have been reading and knitting this Unraveled Wednesday.

Eleanor Oliphant *and* Magpie Murder? loved both, a lot.

@Kat: I hear that. Technically, it was due back to the library last Saturday, so I feel guilty about it being overdue and will finish by the weekend so I can return it this weekend. I’m on a very long wait list for Celeste Ng’s latest (as well as moderately long lists for a couple others), but D.C.’s print holds usually move pretty quickly.

@raidergirl3: They’re both taking up a lot of headspace right now. I fear I’m going to have a huge book hangover by next week.
