After knitting the quick and easy projects for the children's knitting classes, I've returned to my shawl. I am at the fun part-lace edging! Yesterday as I continued the lace pattern and all of my decrease stitches on the wrong side were mixed up. Then I realized that I was not reading the chart correctly! That is what happens when you set something down and forget about it for a few days. It was easy to correct the decreases without ripping out and now I am good to go on the shawl. Phew!
The Hundred Year Old Man etc... is entertaining. I must say it's a bit slow going for me but I am not an adventure reader of books. I like psychological family drama (soap opera story lines in print). I do like the humor that is in the book and as I read I frequently think that this is a book my son would love. I am going to start reading it during the day as well. I think a fresh mind would do wonders compared to a sleepy mind. So if you like adventure, tongue in cheek humor-give this book a flip through. The translation is not as halting as feared.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
(For those of you who asked-I made a rice and lentil salad with a lemony dressing filled with vegetables-carrots, celery, savory cabbage, cucumber-from the Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook, their blog is here)
Now what on earth will be today's dinner????
