photo-free knitting and reading update
posted by soe 1:41 am

I was going to take a photo of the shawl, but it’s only six rows longer than it was last time I shared a picture. In six more rows, I get to leave the ribbing section behind for now and go back to the mosaic design. So, hopefully next week there will be something discernible to show.

On the bookish front, I’ve picked up Pride and Premeditation, Tirzah Price’s riff on Austen’s most famous novel. In her version, Mr. Bennet is a Cheapside solicitor and Lizzie occasionally helps look into cases for him. Mr. Collins is his self-entitled barrister and Charlotte Lucas his secretary. Hoping to convince her father to officially hire her on as a barrister, Lizzie pursues a murder case, in which one Charles Bingley is accused of murdering his no-good brother-in-law, Mr. Hurst. But Lizzie must contend with the most irritating barrister already on the case, a Fitzwilliam Darcy.

I’m also still listening to Queen Elizabeth and her assistant private secretary, Rozie Oshodi, work out a murder mystery. (Or, now, it seems we might be up to three, although only one of them has happened on castle grounds.)
