Lately, I’ve been…
Knitting :: My grace cardigan, again… there were a lot of problems with this project, and I had set it aside for a few months. After taking another look, I wasn’t happy with the gauge or the fit so I ripped out and started over. I really love both this yarn and pattern, so it will be well worth it in the end.
Reading :: Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. I haven’t seen the movie yet because I wanted to read the book first, and the story is just as good as everyone says. I’m about a third of the way in, and enjoying every page. I’m also reading Bad Feminist by Roxanne Gay, which is a collection of essays. I’m really enjoying this too, her commentary is both apt and witty, and it’s a pretty quick read. I’ll probably go back and re-read some of my favourites at the end.
Listening :: To The Minimalists podcast, which is excellent, although I’m not sure to what degree I identify with some of their notions of minimalism. The episodes I’ve heard so far are really engaging and fascinating, though, so it’s well worth a listen.
What have you been knitting, reading, and listening to this week?
On another note, I am saddened to say goodbye to the Yarn-Along – I have met so many friends and discovered so many blogs through it. Thank you, Ginny, for many years of fun! Other than the wonderful Crafting On, what are you favourite knitting link ups right now? I will miss the online knitting circle that inspired my ‘lately’ posts.
