Knitting: My Emily’s Favorite Socks are coming along, slowly but surely. I love the 3×1 rib and the yarn … oh the yarn. There are beautiful little unexpected flecks of color, and the shades are just so soothing. For me, this project is the yarny equivalent of a slipping into a nice, hot bubble bath. There’s something soothing and luxurious about it … a real treat to knit with (now, I just need to find more time to do it!)
Reading: The Yorkshire Shepherdess, by Amanda Owen (still). I’ve talked a lot on the blog about my struggle to carve out fun reading time — and that’s still the case! But I have gone from finding this book mildly interesting to pretty engrossing … I’ve stayed up several nights later than I should to read just one more chapter! I’m about halfway through, and there’s something about Owen’s style of writing — straightforward, immediate — that has really drawn me in!
What are you working on at the moment?
