Currently on the Needles
My reading this past week was packed with goodness. First off, I finally finished reading Baker Towers and thoroughly enjoyed the novel. You should read it, seriously. The book is well written, and the plot centers on a mining town near Pittsburgh (yay! my home town) and how over the years the mining town changes with the times. You follow the changes of the town through a family and their struggles as they grow up and become adults.
The next book I read, was a quick read. A Man without a Country by Kurt Vonnegut is funny and closely resembles a memoir of sorts. The chapters are written in an essay format and I must say the 1 1/2 hours that I sat and read the book were happy and had me laughing out loud. This book I picked up from the library.
The photo above is a slow going read because it is FILLED with information on healthy eating. I love how she writes and how the diet is not strict but on a continuum of what fits into your life style. We could all eat more fruits and vegetables, right?
Thank you so much for your kind words on yesterday's post about my shawl. You are all too kind!!
My new knitting is a laceweight rectangular shawl but I'm following a fingering weight pattern. I've gone down to a size 4 needle and also added an extra repeat of the pattern. I think I like how it's turning out so far.
