Yarn Along and a Hat
My sweater is still on the needles, in fact I'm still on the first sleeve! I continue to work on it a little bit each day so I'm making progress but it's slow progress. So instead of focusing on the sweater sleeve construction, I cast on another project! Doesn't everyone do that? It's like starting a new dessert while another dessert is still available. However, I will not throw my half eaten dessert (sweater) into the freezer (bottom of the knitting bag) to preserve it, promise. My new project is a wurm hat and it will be the fifth time I've knitted it. However I only own one since I keep giving them away. Everyone should knit this hat at least once in their knitting lifetime. Ravelry notes are here.
I finished The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner over the weekend. It was a difficult read in the beginning but it was worth it. I've never met more miserable characters in a long time. I want to read it again but not for now, I need a break from thinking. If you're up for a reading challenge this is the book for you! This week's book is a non thinking book. The Last Time I Saw You by Elizabeth Berg is light and airy and it's perfect for entertaining me while I recover from Faulkner's vivid images and writing style.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
