Knitting :: My Featherweight cardigan! Long-time blog readers will know that I have been working on this for a LONG time… I first cast on for this pattern in 2010, when I was a sophomore in high school, with the goal of finishing it within a few months for a trip. Needless to say, that didn’t happen… it’s four years later and I’m still working at it! The first time I knit this, it had a lot of fit issues (some my own fault, some the fault of the pattern), and I wasn’t happy with the drape of the fabric. I frogged the entire thing in 2012 and cast on a new version, at a different gauge, around this time last year. I’ve been working on it on and off since then and I’ve nearly finished the first sleeve (and it fits this time!). Maybe I’ll get to wear my Featherweight this year? (Rav link)
Reading :: Finished Eden Robinson’s Traplines. This short story collection is beautifully written, but it was a little morbid and depressing for my taste. I’m glad I read it, but I probably won’t be doing any re-reads!
Still reading Dubliners by James Joyce. Really enjoying these anecdotal stories of working-class Dubliners.
About halfway through Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. This has been my on-the-go reading on my Kindle for a little while now and I’m enjoying it. It’s not Gaiman’s best work by any stretch, but the setting for this book is a really interesting one.
