The vacation is over and believe me when I tell you it just went too fast, but more on that later.

Today, I am here to share a bit of knitting and lots of reading.

Sadly, there was little knitting done on vacation, but I did get manage to get through the color work and the short rows on Rock the Lobster! I think I am going to switch things up and do the sleeves next. Yes, I am taking some good advice and getting them done and out of the way!

I am also still knitting these socks. I have about 3 inches to go before toe decreases on sock one.


However, I have a couple of good Audiobooks queued up – Clara Parkes Knitlandia (which I have already read, but having her read it is something I have been looking forward to!) and Per Petterson Ashes in My Mouth, Sand in My Shoes. Perhaps, this can help me get my knitting back in gear!


I also received a book I won from Stephanie of WoolythymeElizabeth Hay Late Nights on Air, which came with a lovely card and tea! Thank you so much Stephanie!! I am eager to read this and then pay it forward.

I did finish two books on vacation – Karin Fossum Don’t Look Back and Jussi Adler-Olsen The Hanging Girl – I loved both of them! Karin Fossum is a new author I discovered and it was a book I could not put down. A quick and easy read that kept me engaged from start to finish. The Hanging Girl is the most recent Department Q novel – Carl Morck’s team has really become a well working unit and the book might be my favorite for that reason.

And, now a pile of work awaits me, but tell me please – what have you finished reading or knitting this week?

As always, linking up with Ginny and her Yarn Along!
