Independence Unraveling

I didn’t knit at all this week. Mostly, I didn’t even take it with me. But the Tour de France (and its associated knitalong) starts up on Saturday, so I have been doing a lot of mulling over of patterns. A new shawl may be in the works come this time next week! Or, you know, something else entirely.

I did, however, read. And because I read, I took books back to the library and brought home new ones, including Casey McQuiston’s Red, White, and Royal Blue, which I started today in honor of the Fourth of July. It’s about the first female president’s son, who causes an international incident with an heir to the throne in a $75,000 scuffle at a Royal Wedding. I am entranced with both Alex and Henry and if I resurfaced for air after a kiss in the Rose Garden, well, let’s say it was just so I didn’t stay up all night reading straight through.

I’m also reading the Austen-inspired, Indian-American-centric Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors by Sonali Dev and listening to Daisy Jones & The Six, which read by a full cast (including some well-known voices) and which is the book equivalent of a Behind the Scenes special about a 1970s pop star and her band. It’s excellent help at distracting me while pitting a seemingly endless supply of cherries at the kitchen sink.

Head over to As Kat Knits to see what people who’ve actually been crafting this week have been working on.
