Greetings, Unravelers! I find myself immersed in “Deep Sweater Season” and happily so!
I am about two and a half inches from joining the second sleeve with the body to continue with the yoke of Rusty and visions of my next sweater are dancing in my head! These are the days of happy knitting! I hope to have a finished sweater next week, and will begin swatching for my next sweater this week.
I also cast on a super simple Knit Night project! IT is the PERFECT Knit Night project! Thank you, Gale, for inspiring this!
Now, on to my November Reading! I finished a number of very good books:
- What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton. (5-Stars, you can read my review here)
- Tonight You’re Dead by Viveca Sten (5-Stars, you can read my review here)
- The Scarred Woman by Jussi Adler-Olsen (5-Stars, you can read my review here)
- Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman (2-stars, you can read my review here)
I am listening to Amor Towles, A Gentleman in Moscow and I am enjoying it tremendously. I also just began another Net Galley book; Christopher Greyson’s The Girl Who Lived.
PLUS, I picked up several “real” books from the library last night, but more on them next week!
What are you making and reading?

I admire your dedication to sweater knitting. I loved A Gentleman in Moscow, I hope you will, too!
I’m glad cold weather is finally here so you can wear your terrific sweaters (and eventually sweaters and scarves in progress). I am wondering if you have time to eat or sleep as you are quite prolific in both knitting and reading!
A Gentleman in Moscow has been one of my favorite books this year. Enjoy!
go you on your sweater progress! I feel like I’m languishing in my same projects. Hopefully I will finish something (anything!) and cast on something new and inspiring.
So will there be steaking on that sweater? Love the color.
I just finished reading Scarred Woman. I, too, am anticipating the next Dept. Q book to learn what happens to Rose. I love this series.
Love your projects, how do you have time for them all? I’m working on simple items for Xmas, mitts+wristwarmers+scarves+kid’s sweaters, but have two sweaters in the queue that I so want to get to. This my reading has suffered. . “A Gentleman in Moscow” was one of my favorites for this year.
You are the second one to tell me WHAT HAPPENED was good. Im inclined to listen to it.
So happy yourknitting is making you happy. Mine is too!!
A Gentleman from Moscow was such an entertaining and enjoyable read. I hope you like it, too.
I’ve got AGIM on my list to read too…though I’ll probably listen as that’s the only way I seem to be able to finish a book lately! Could this be the year of the sweater???
Wow! I LOVE Rusty’s color combination!
Hooray for an almost-finished sweater! I’m getting the itch to start a new one, but I’m about to start spinning for a Boxy, so I think I should probably wait until the yarn is done first.
Rusty’s color is perfect…and you are one readin’ knittin’ blogger! Lookin’ forward to seeing the finished sweater and reading more about your books…
Your rusty streak makes me smile! (are your next-up projects going to switch out the color scheme?) I think I’m having a 4-3-2-1/The Color Purple hangover…might need to watch some TV!
I am unreasonably happy to see the Rifton Grand Central you are making !
I’ve been looking for Hillary’s book at my library, I so want to read it after reading your review!
