Lately, I’ve been…
Knitting :: My sunrise cardi, which I think will be perfect for the warm weather that has arrived here! The pattern is lovely and from the book H got me for Christmas this year. The yarn I’m using is Knit Picks Palette in the colour finnley heather – the colour is nice and I think it’s one that I will get a lot of wear out of.
Reading :: I’m about halfway through both Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and The Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler. Big Magic is a fun read – I’m not sure I agree with her general mindset, but it’s so fascinating to read about the author’s creative process. The Butler book is a post-apocalyptic novel, and it’s superbly written. Definitely the most chilling book I’ve read recently. I also picked up Bread Alone from the library yesterday and I can understand why it’s so well-loved. Hopefully it will be the missing piece in learning to bake the perfect sourdough!
Planting :: The first seeds of the season – tomatoes, lettuce and spinach!
