There has not been a lot of knitting around here this week. However, there has been a good deal of knitting anticipation.
Like this, and this. Knitting ennui has been vanquished!
But, I hope to have the Honey Cowl done later today. I only have about an inch more to knit, so that is entirely doable!
There has been a good deal of reading though, thanks to Audiobooks and a bit of insomnia.
I finished listening to Clara read Knitlandia and I really enjoyed it in this format!
I began listening to The Girl on the Train, I am not yet sure how I feel about this book as I just began yesterday.
I finished The Murder of Harriet Krohn by Karin Fossum. (I am not reading these in order, which I may come to regret) It was a curious way to write a murder mystery. I won’t say more as to not share any spoilers, but I am not sure I really liked the manner in which the story unfolded.
Last night, I began reading He Who Fears the Wolf by the same author. I think that I will like this book a bit more than Harriet Krohn.
I have not gotten much farther in The Year of Living Danishly as I haven’t had any time to sit down to read during the day at all. I hope to correct that before this week is over. I need to get it finished, because it is due back to the library (always a good incentive to sit down and read!)
Do you have any “must finish” books this week?
Oh, Sigla sweater looks wonderful! Thank you for sharing the link! I am reading Julian Barnes and I can’t believe that I’ve never read anything by him before! What a language! What an author! Just amazing!
I bought the Drop Dead book at Rhinebeck last weekend! I love so many of the patterns!
Love your Honey Cowl; it reminds me of pistachios! I’d like to finish In the Woods this week. I decided to go back and read this series in order and this one is so compelling that I’m looking forward to a long drive tomorrow with uninterrupted listening time.
Just finished the latest Louise Penny (Inspector Gamache) which was good as well as “The Last Painting of Sara de Vos” which I also liked. Knitting anticipation is such fun, isn’t it?
PS I’ve decided to join you knitting Sigla!! Can’t wait. Will be ordering yarn this week or next (when I can get the time). Great anticipation!!
I like the sound of ‘the year of living Danishly’, I bought ‘the little book of Hygga’ which I am so keen to start! Your yarn is very autumnal, I bet it’s going to look amazing
My reading is suffering but I have had a little time for knitting (with friends). My ennui is towards the blog. le sigh
The Sigla sweater is so great! Last year, when everyone was knitting the Stopover, I didn’t. Then I went to a Knitlandia book signing (!) and so many people there were wearing theirs, I wished I had – they were such pretty sweaters.
I’m currently reading a dumb book that I am not sure I’ll finish, so I’m not gonna even bother to tell you the title …
Your Honey Cowl is just beautiful!
I loved The Girl on the Train, but some of my friends really hated it. I’ll be interested in your opinion.
My goal to read even ONE fiction title a month is woefully off base…and I’ve still that inch or so to go on the poncho…today b4 the debate…
the cowl is going to be lovely…looking fwd to seeing it on you.
My reading had slowed down a bit but now the pace is picking up again. I finished Dark Matter in just a day and now I’m reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and I think it’s also going to be a fast read.
The Murder of Harriet Krohn is on my to-read list. I just finished The Indian Bride by Fossum and the ending left me feeling unsettled. I loved th book otherwise.
love your honey cowl which is a pattern I have NOT knit yet 🙂 I’m almost done with my cowl (like binding off right now..).
Well, my Sigla yarn did not arrive yesterday; updated tracking says tomorrow (??!! so…more baby hat time 🙂 I’m opting for Netflix over books right now, but started Shirley Jackson We’ve Always Lived in the Castle yesterday. I have NO IDEA what’s going on, but I can only listen while it’s light outside so it might take me a few days to find out!
I just finished reading The Throwback Special. I’m still trying to figure out what I actually thought of that one . . . in the end. (But because it’s still on my mind 24 hours after I finished, I’m thinking it might have had a little more meat to it than I originally thought!) I’m listening to Raven Black by Ann Cleeves — the first in a little mystery series set in the Shetland Islands. So far, so good!
Your honey cowl is rather lush! I made one in yellow and pale brown as an end of year teacher gift and it was beautiful, but I forgot to photograph. I’m pretty sure I will make another some day, definitely in hand dyed again!
