Yarnalong: Lotta, Traigh, and The Sheep Stell

2018-08-01 13.51.52.jpg

Knitting: What am I not knitting might be the more operative question!  My knitting time has been very scattered among many projects recently, but here are two: my Lotta, which I have only been working on at knit night or in other social situations (chatting’s a great distraction from endless stockinette!) but is nevertheless growing, and Traigh, a lovely new shawl from Kate Davies.  I haven’t worked on it in nearly a week (sniff) and can’t wait to get back to it as I am really enjoying the yarn and pattern.

Reading: The Sheep Stell by Janet White (Not Jenny Deski as previously stated — she who wrote a blurb on the cover — sorry about that!) I think I might have already posted about this book … I started it right before I left for the States, but then put it down to read Kate Atkinson’s Behind the Scenes at the Museum which I absolutely adored (on many of your recommendations, I’ve now also procured Case Studies) I’m not far enough in to say much other than I love Diski’s straightforward prose — I think I’m really going to enjoy this memoir.  The cover art also makes me unreasonably happy.

Check out what everyone is up to at the original Yarnalong post!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a teeny bit of sock talk and then later this week with some plans for August … but for now, my dissertation is calling and I better answer! Only a few weeks to go til submission!

  1. I am looking forward to reading more of your posts and checking your projects on ravelry. I’ve added you as a friend on ravelry in case you were wondering about the “random” friend request.

  2. How amazing you’re writing a dissertation. I have no clue about how that works and what to do. I personally like learning new things but going back to school? Forget about it. I have no patience.
