Lost Wednesday Unraveling

I’m not quite sure how I missed processing it was Wednesday until now. But it is. Or was. I’m glad the weekend is a day closer, but am not happy that I misplaced an evening in there, particularly one I usually enjoy.

As you can see, it’s been a productive week for knitting. I’ve been trying to knit during meetings in which I take more of a listening role than a presenting one, and that’s definitely helped. Also, the tail end of Recipe for Persuasion was great for knitting while reading, which really can’t be done when reading books with fraught conclusions. (It messes with my tension.) I’m into my last set of colors before I start the toe decreases, so there’s the possibility I’ll have a new pair of socks by the weekend.

Sock Madness begins sometime in the next two days, and I have several weekends with more me time than usual coming up because Rudi’s ski team has some end-of-season races that he needs to coach. I haven’t finished the timed round the past few years, but maybe the extra alone time will motivate me to knit faster. Or it won’t, and I’ll just move on to another project — like last year’s unfinished pair … or 2019’s.

I know I said last week that I was going to move on next to a novel set during spring training, but I wasn’t able to renew Undercover Bromance, so I decided to pick it back up and see if I liked it any more than I did the first grumpy night I tried to read it. The two main protagonists are now on each other’s radar, so I’ll give it two more chapters to get its act together, but I still may ditch it.

I’m also listening to The Midnight Library, which two local Twitter book pals loved and which Karen decidedly did not. It struggles to live up to its selling point — who amongst us wouldn’t like to try on the alternate stories of our lives if we’d made different choices? The author does too much telling and not enough showing, and the protagonist’s life spiral is rushed in an effort to get us to the most interesting part of the story quickly — and thus seems a little insulting to those of us who struggle with mental health issues. But as I wrote earlier this week, I’ve been doing a lot of self-rumination recently, so the concept is pulling me through so far.

Head over to As Kat Knits to see what others are reading and crafting.
