The Knits of the Week
If my knitting needles could catch on fire from all the knitting I've been doing, well wouldn't that be a sight to see? I've photoed what I was knitting all day yesterday. The socks, the socks that have been languishing in my bag, the socks that I want off the needles, the socks that are nearly nearly done. They are for my husband, he needs at least three pairs so I can toss the pairs that are unmendable (not a word but it describes the socks). I am also knitting away on my shawl and my sweater. I'm enjoying all three projects equally for different reasons. The socks and the sweater can be knit while reading, and the shawl is my more involved knit that requires my attention.
I finished a book yesterday that you must read. The Postmistress by Sarah Blake, was captivating. During the start through the finish I could not figure out what was going to happen next, so I kept on reading. Truly a sign of a fantastic book. The novel was also a quick read for me. I seem to be in a WWII kind of mood since the fictional book I finished was during that time period and my current evening read-Nella Last's War-is as well. Nella keeps a journal during the whole war period of what she experienced and thought. She is around my age and I find her entries thought provoking. This memoir transports me to another time and place of a woman and a mother defining herself and attempting to make sense of a war that touches every one she knows.
