My January is off to a roaring start! I have finished my Felix Cardigan – well, it is finished with the exception of weaving the ends in and sewing on buttons! I hope to get to JoAnn’s this weekend to see what they might have that could work with it! I really love how a sewn tubular bind off looks and I will be using that technique again!
I also cast on and finished Leni, which I knit for my daughter for her birthday! It needs a bit of a soak and then can be wrapped to send off to her! I love the fit and will be making another of these!
Now I am back patiently working on my Evening Dew Cardigan – slowly but surely!
I also started my “month of sewing” and I am 2 sleeves, pockets, and a hem short of a finish on my flannel Esme Tunic. Sadly, I failed greatly on trying to figure out how to match the plaids… sigh. I have a bit more sewing to get to this month, and a bit more practice matching plaids, so stay tuned!
My reading also started of gang busters with some winners and one that did not quite win for me.
What is not to love about RBG? Conversations with RBG: Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Life, Love, Liberty, and Law will show you there is lots to love about her! The conversations are intelligent, reaffirming, and at times poignant! PLUS!! I discovered Jeffrey Rosen’s We The People podcast! 5-stars and I highly recommend! (Also, if you listen to the audio version – there are out-takes at the end with RBG!)
The Whisper Man is a thriller and it does keep you engaged. I devoured it in a few short hours, and not much else was accomplished because I could not put it down! 4-stars and I recommend.
That’s all I have for today but what are you excited about making or reading in the New Year?
