April Reading

I finished Strange the Dreamer over the weekend, so I’ve returned to Sing, Unburied, Sing as my main book, since it needs to get back to the library this week in order to avoid a fine. Happily, it finally seems to have picked up its pace, so I think I should be able to read more than 10 pages at a time. I’m once again listening to Crocodile on the Riverbank, but am seriously considering abandoning it. If you like the Amelia Peabody books, please tell me why, because it feels like between the racism and the obvious bad guys that this book should fade into oblivion. And I read pieces of short stories from Kidnapped! Abductions in Time, Space, and Fantasy when I feel like sitting at my laptop for an additional ten minutes at a time.

You’ll notice no knitting in this photo. I’ve got nothing new to show. I’m stuck. Nothing interests me, except for the hat, for which I need to acquire the beads I want (rather than what the bead store has) in order to move forward. I know once I get past the heel with the Posey socks those should get me unstuck, but I admit that I’m contemplating just casting on a new pair of socks in the meantime. I know I’m feeling grumpy toward my knitting right now because my knitting is feeling grumpy toward me. Time will fix it all, I’m sure. If not, there’s no shortage of yarn in this apartment to try something new with.

Head over to As Kat Knits to see what else folks are working on.

I hear you… I had a serious case of Knitting Ennui going on here too and I am not sure it is over yet.

My knitting has been in fits and starts. Mostly in fits.

[…] I said yesterday, I’m feeling stuck with my knitting. And, to be honest, none of what I’m currently […]

@Bridget: I hear you.

@Kat: Your ennui seems so much more productive than mine, though…

I listened to Sing Unburied Sing and it was very good. I really loved the accents.

I remember you mentioned Crocodile on the Sandbank so I made note at my audio library with the excitement of a long series to enjoy. Now I see maybe not so enjoyable? lol, off the list it goes.
