Knitting :: My sunrise cardi, which I’ve almost finished! I just have one of the sleeve edgings and the collar left. The pattern is from Swoon Maine, which is such a beautiful book, and the yarn is Knit Picks palette.

Reading :: An Agatha Christie, always a perfect summer mystery – Peril at End House. I’ve also just started A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams, because I needed a hardcover book to read on transit on my way to work… rush hour is just too crazy for paperbacks.

What have you been knitting and reading this week?

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!

Listening :: To the Spirits podcast, which is a short, fun show about mythology and legends from around the world. And to this playlist, which is the perfect mood for me right now – quiet but upbeat.

Planting :: The first seeds of the season – tomatoes, lettuce and spinach!
