Happy Valentine’s Day – or as Compassionknit says, Happy GALentine’s Day, Unravelers!
I got my knitting back on track yesterday and the body of my Olympic Carbeth is done and a sleeve is under way! Despite the little bits of time that I have had to knit on this, it is going amazingly fast! However, thanks to the Olympics, I knit an extra inch on the body. I don’t think it will matter and I am not ripping back! Yet…when I have the sleeves done, I will try it on and see what I think. It is a bit hard to tell in its current state.
All other knitting is in a holding pattern…that means the socks are on hold as is my Stokkur. I have marked my place in both patterns, however, so I don’t forget where I am! Hopefully, I will be back to knitting them this weekend!
My reading this week was so good!
I finished Sherman Alexie’s You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me (so so so good!) and The Snow Child (also so good!) but I have made little headway with Ali Smith’s Winter, because knitting and Olympics watching!
I started listening to Before We Were Yours. I am not quite halfway through but I am liking how this story is being told, very much!
At night I am trying to stay awake long enough to get into a Net Galley book, Gods of Howl Mountain. Sometimes, staying awake to read more than a
page, err a paragraph or two is a Herculean task! But, I hope to get it done this week…if I can stay awake that is! Haha!
Did you see some of the new titles coming out this month? I am on the wait list for several of them at my library already!
As for Valentine’s Day… we are staying in. I am making my own riff on Surf and Turf with Lamb and Shrimp. Do you have special plans for dinner tonight?
As always, if you are joining us today, thank you!! Please leave the link to you post in your comment!
