Lately, I’ve been…

Knitting :: Still on the body of my Flax Light, although much further than last week! I’ve only got 4-5″ to go before the ribbing, and I’m still enjoying the knit. I know the sleeves are where I’m likely to lose momentum, so I won’t be casting anything else on until this is done. (And Lyra is an excellent knitting helper, as I’m sure you can guess).

Reading :: I finished Between the World and Me by Ta-Nihisi Coates, which was such a good read. I have so many thoughts which I’m still pondering this week. Read it if you haven’t. Now I’ve started a novel that I picked up at random at the library this weekend, Ghana Must Go by Taiye Selasi.It’s been alright so far, but I have read that it picks up significantly after the first third of the book, so we’ll see.

Listening :: Lots of music, quieter at work during moments when I really need to get stuff done, and faster paced at home for cooking. A few of my favourites from this month:

Have a lovely day!

It’s noon, I’m still in my pjs with today’s crossword and a huge cup of tea, so the weekend’s off to a pretty excellent start! I’m planning to spend this afternoon working on a test knit baby vest while the cat is lounging in the sun patches. Here are some of my favourite things from around the internet this week to start your weekend:

Apparently a small kitchen can make you a better cook… I’ve already got the tiny kitchen, so now I just need to make the time to make something interesting, I guess?

I know lots of people doing interesting and unique and wonderful things, and I think that this might be the thread that connects them all – Start Before You’re Ready. Because “sucking is the first step to being sorta good at something”.

I’ve always wanted to learn to play chess, so Chess Academy is now on my list of things to check out soon.

This playlist is going to be the soundtrack to my weekend.

Seamless is my latest blog discovery and it’s absolute perfection. Beautiful knitting with pretty yarn, delicious food, stunning photography – it’s a treat to read.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

It’s been quiet here this week, so I think it’s time for an update! This week, I’ve been…

Knitting :: My Spring Boneyard Shawl… since it seems like the warm weather has finally arrived, I’d like to get this off the needles sometime soon!

Reading :: Still working through In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. I also took The Complete Book of Small Batch Preserving out from the library for the second time and I liked it so much that I ordered a copy for myself.

Choosing :: Fabric for my first quilt! I’m using Laura’s chevron quilt tutorial.

Watching :: G and I started Veronica Mars today… we only watched the first episode but it’s pretty good. Great characters and lots of witty dialogue.

Listening :: To Kina Grannis’ new album Elements. So many great songs. I can’t stop listening to it.

Linking up with KCCO and Yarn-Along as usual!
