Lately, I’ve been…

Knitting :: The second of my Bon Echo socks, which are nearly done! I’m about halfway through the gusset decreases and then I’ve just got the foot and the toe to go. The yarn is Knit Picks Essentials (which is discontinued, but I got it from a local Raveler’s destash). I should use up almost all of the brown but I will have lots of the green leftover to add stripes to another pair. I’m not using a pattern for these, but I have made very rough notes on my project page.

Reading :: I just started The Secrets of Lake Road by Karen Katchur, which is a summer mystery type novel. I love the atmosphere so far, although I’m finding the juvenile voice of the narrator a bit distracting. Fortunately I think the story is told by several narrators, so that should improve.

Watching :: I’ve been rewatching some of the old episodes of Midsomer Murders, which is on Netflix. If you haven’t seen this show, I’d especially recommend the early seasons – it’s a crime drama set in small English villages. Each episode is a bit longer than one and a half hours, so they’re really mini-movies with lots of time for good plot and character development.

What have you been knitting and reading this week?

Linking up with KCCO and Yarn-Along.

  5. Love, love that teal. I assume you carry the other yarn when striping a thick stripe like that?

  6. I really love that green and sometimes, in the summer, during the worst of hot days, I love thinking about things like cozy socks to help me know that the heat will break.
    I so agree, I love the Midsomer Mysteries – I love that they are the right mix of cozy English mysteries with the tiniest bit of edgey, just to keep them fun.
