Pre-Hurricane Unraveling

Yarn is starting to noticeably disappear from the center of my shawl balls, so I imagine I’ll only do one or two more repeats before I hit the 80% mark that signals the next part of the pattern and the decreasing. The prospect of a finished project is exciting.

I started Ashley Herring Blake’s Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World this evening and am finding it charming. Artistic Ivy, age twelve, her teenage sister, her parents, and her twin infant brothers lose their home to a tornado in the second chapter of the novel. This external force will cause repercussions during a time of adolescent stress and runs the risk of disclosing secrets Ivy hasn’t yet fully revealed even to herself.

We’re two chapters from hearing the end of A Conspiracy in Belgravia and I have two dozen short chapters left to listen to in The President Is Missing. I’m excited to hear the resolution to Lady Sherlock’s current woes in the former, and will be pleased to be done with the latter, in which none of the problems have yet to be resolved (but which I have no doubt will occur in quick order).

LOVE! That shawl is so gorgeous! I love when I get to the “tipping point” of a project and it feels all downhill!
