Knitting :: Ease by Alicia Plummer in Patons Decor, colourway 87014 Peat. I’m knitting the small size at a guage of 5 sts/ inch instead of 4.5 sts/ inch in hopes of a slightly more fitted sweater. I would normally just knit the small as written, but the pattern includes 3-4″ of ease and I’m not sure I want quite that much. (Rav Link)

Reading :: Wild by Cheryl Strayed. I had started this awhile ago but only got a few chapters in. I’m not sure I love it so far, but I think it might just be a bit of a slow start. We’ll see. (Goodreads link)

Watching :: (A bonus this week because I need your advice!) Call the Midwife. I had started this awhile ago as well and I had forgotten how good it is! I’m on the fifth episode. I feel like I’m missing some good summer shows- what are your favourites?

Have a great week!

Linking up with KCCO, Yarn-Along, and WIP Wednesdays as usual.

  1. The pattern is beautiful! I bet yours will be too! 🙂

    • Thanks Jordyn! I can’t wait to wear it!

  2. It will be lovely, I like your yarn choice!

    • Thanks Sylvia! I hope the colour isn’t too similar to my hair colour- I guess we’ll see when it’s finished!

    • Thanks Jeanette!
      (You must be Canadian or British, spelling ‘colour’ the right way! :P)

      • I love this pattern, and your yarn looks just gorgeous!

      • Thanks! The yarn is softer than I expected for a blend.

  3. I just started “Call the Midwife” – I was alternating that with “Top of the Lake” which was a very different show. Interesting, but very intense and when it finished I was left feeling unsettled.

    • I just looked up Top of the Lake and it sounds very interesting… I love crime shows so it might be right up my alley. Thanks for the suggestion 🙂

  4. I love Call The Midwife. I am really behind and have to catch up on it.

    • I’m also very behind (still in the first season) but it is so good! Everything about it is just so well done.

  5. First off I absolutely love the colour you chose, so chocolatey rich. I’ve only caught a few episodes of “call the midwife” I keep forgetting when it is on but I do like the show, I wish midwifery was more common in North America, growing up I wouldn’t even have known what an OB was, lol.

    • Thanks, Christina! I actually bought the first season on iTunes (it’s under 20$, I don’t remember exactly how much) since it’s not on Netflix yet. I enjoy it enough that it was definitely worth the purchase!

  6. I haven’t checked the pattern but your progress is looks great. And “Call The Midwife” such a wonderful, under-appreciated series!!! Enjoy it!

    • Thanks Nicky! I’ve just finished the first season and it is such an amazing series 🙂
