There has been no unraveling at all (thank goodness!!) Which is doubly good since Julia Farwell-Clay posted this most timely Instagram post… YES, I am picking up the stitches correctly! However, I am MUCH slower than she is! I need to learn that yarn management thing she has going on!
While there has been no unraveling… sadly, there has been minimal knitting going on. Although, the sock saw some knit-time this week at Election Worker Training on Monday. Outside of that, I am still on the final seam of blanket number one and might be having some heart palpitations about the applied i-cord edging, but I think it will be a good thing to sit down and listen to my current listen, The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. It took me a bit to get into this, but I think I have all l the people down which has helped tremendously! It’s a long book so it should be the perfect companion to all that i-cord edging!
There has been LOTS of cooking going on! I have been really jonesing for some autumnal meals – so I made chicken pot pie on Monday and stuffed butternut squash yesterday. But, the showstopper was
David Liebovitz’s Dorrie Greenspan’s French Apple Cake! I made it yesterday and the smell in the house was amazing! My only substitution to swap out the dark rum for some whiskey. It is a super easy recipe and it tastes like a lot more work than it was!
I did have some finished reads to share this week… so it was not a total bust!
I finished The Immortalists with mixed feelings. However, my thoughts have lingered on several things in the book… but that will not change my rating of 3-stars. I did not like the ending at all. I am not sure what to say about it without giving anything about the plot away but suffice it to say this dysfunctional family beat mine, hands down!
I also finished The Thing About December… this was a tough read for me. So much pain and sadness (these books probably were not the best combination to read concurrently). But the writing is brilliant. This does not beat The Spinning Heart or From a Low and Quiet Sea for me, but I am glad I read it and I gave it 4-stars.
But, what about you? What are you making and reading this week? If you wrote a post to share, please leave your link below!
