Currently on the Needles
Well, you must be thinking I'm someone else the week. I am reading The Martian which is completely out of my reading comfort zone. I did love the opening sentence of the book which is R rated and kind of sarcastically funny. You see, both my son and my nephew insisted this is my kind of book and the content isn't as important as the way the story is told. So, I'm reading it and I'm liking it.
I finished The Nest and it was fantastic!! Sure it's about a dysfunctional selfish family of middle aged siblings but I kind of liked them because it showed the "ugly" side of us, the petty, the unforgiving and the horrible stuff that might cross our minds when we are feeling vulnerable or sad (or selfish). The characters were interesting and most of them had personal growth.
My knitting! Can you see it? SOCKS. I felt like if I cast on another shawl I was going to groan. So I needed to do something else, and socks are the answer to knitting ennui. You and I both know that a shawl is simmering in the works in the back of my mind but for now, I'm hugging and loving a simple sock.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
