I admit that I'm still reading the same books. This past week I've only read at night which leads to little progress. Last night I finished Plan B by Anne Lamott and enjoyed it more so than Traveling Mercies. Her essays have a mature writing about them and being somewhat mature it struck a personal chord within me. Wuthering Heights is chugging along as well. Every time Joseph the servant speaks I'm slowed down by his "accent". Sometimes he goes on and on in the book, which makes me dislike him all the more. Currently Heathcliff has returned mysteriously richer. Cathy is being "friends" with him even though her husband Edgar gets mad. And poor Isabella she is crushing on Heathcliff. I want to warn Isabella too! Hindley poor fellow is about to lose his inheritance through his own fault. I cannot wait for consumption to hit some of the characters.
My knitting is on fire this week. I've made great progress with the body of the sweater. Over half way? Then because sometimes I have attention problems I started this lovely cotton shawlette which is popular on Ravelry-198 yards of heaven. I'm enjoying it because the needle size is an eight! Chunky knitting for me, if you know me at all.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
