yarning along: early october
posted by soe 1:19 am

It’s been a full week, with festivals and visits from an old friend and cleaning, so the post where I was going to get a little caught up by telling you about the National Book Fest will have to wait (although at least now photos are off my phone).

In the meantime, I’ll join with Ginny and share what I’m reading and crafting:

Yarn Along: Oct. 2

Work continues on my shawl, but it’s now reaching the halfway mark, which makes it cumbersome to carry around with me. Plus, during the aforementioned festivals, it’s nice to have mindless knitting to work on and that means a stockinette sock. The yarn is Tangy Self-Striping Sock Yarn in Purple Rain from Twisted Limone Designs, and I love it.

On the reading front I’m all over the place. I’m listening to an audiobook while cleaning and, otherwise, I’ve got three titles on the go: Virals, which I was reading a month ago and then put down because it got more stressful than I wanted from my reading (but since the library would like it back, I’ve circled back to it); Flight Behavior by the wonderful Barbara Kingsolver (who is one of my favorite writers of all time); and Platypus Police Squad: The Frog Who Croaked, a middle grade title by Jarrett J. Krosoczka about a rookie platypus police officer. I saw it at Politics & Prose when I was up for their last member sale, but passed it by at the time. Later that week, I was at the library and didn’t repeat the decision.

I love that yarn, lovely colours. I have yet to attempt socks! Bit scared of them…

@Debbie: No reason to be scared of socks. If you can knit in the round, you can make them. And turning the heel still pleases me to no end.
