Eavesdrop slowly grows and I am almost ready for my last skein…which means I have about 2 inches to go to the “recommended length”! I am not sure it will be quite long enough, but I will try it on when I have this skein done and see what I think! I really want to get it done so I can wear it, because I think this will be a wonderful hot weather sweater and we have a slate of hot weather in the forecast! Hopefully, next week I will have a completed sweater to share with you all!
I had a few finished reads this week; I finished listening to The Magician King, which I enjoyed tremendously! I have one more book in the series, but it will have to wait until after Book Bingo because I don’t have a square for it! Boo!
Less: A Novel quickly followed as it is a short little book. I enjoyed listening to it but quite frankly I am not sure how this won a Pulitzer Prize!
I also finished The Pittsburgh Stories of Willa Cather – a truly lovely little compilation of stories she wrote while living here. This little taste of Cather has piqued my curiosity and I will be reading more of her stories!
I also finished reading An American Marriage which is beautifully written. I love how Teyari Jones wrote this sad tale with a perspective from each of the main characters. I highly recommend this book!
Current reads include listening to book two of the Red Sparrow series: Palace of Treason and reading an ARC of Ohio: A Novel (which I set aside to read An American Marriage) but I should be done with it quickly as I don’t think I have any library holds that I am anywhere near next in line!
What’s on your making/reading list this week?

Oooh, you are so close to finishing — you can do it!
I can’t wait to see your finished Eavesdrop; it is going to be a perfect hot-weather piece! I just finished listening to Elizabeth Strout’s Anything Is Possible; loved it. and now I have FOUR (yes, I am bad about managing my Overdrive queue!) new books to listen to – the timing is pretty good, though, since I anticipate a lot of listening time over the next week.
Oooh, yahoo! I am looking forward to your Eavesdrop!
I, too, am eager to see your finished Eavesdrop! I also just finished Less – although I read it rather than listened to it. I LOVED it – was delighted by it – and think it was a perfect and timely Pulitzer pick.
What are you knitting next? 🙂
I liked Less because it felt like an old fashioned Carrie Grant kind of movie. Maybe the Pulitzer committee wanted mix things up a bit.
You must be very ready to be finished with Eavesdrop! It has seen you through some great books, though.
Love the color of Eavesdrop and looking forward to seeing it “on the runway,” so to speak! Forging on with 4321!
Eavesdrop is going to be a beauty. Knit on to the finish line. I recommend three short stories by Cather that were published together under the title, Obscure Destinies. Of course there are others to enjoy.
What a gorgeous color for your Eavesdrop! It’s going to be stunning! And thank you for the recommendation for An American Marriage. That one is on my list.
I post about my latest WIP and current reading over at http://www.knitpotion.com/2018/06/unraveled-wednesday-update/
Thank you for hosting Unraveled Wednesday! 🙂
that photo is gorgeous and that color is rich and beautiful! I am hoping to finish up my true colors by next week, fingers crossed!
