It seems that in all things, I have this idea that whatever it is I am making will go quicker than it does in actuality.
However, at long last, I have a finished Ranunculus! It needs a nice wash, but I should be wearing it before the week is out! AND!! Just in time because the 90 degree temps have arrived in Pittsburgh this week! And it will be the perfect sitooterie sweater! Yes, thanks to Scott Simon, I learned a new word this week and I am wanting to use it all the time! I mean shouldn’t we all have a sitooterie of our own?
No, I have not started the TTL MKAL… yet. I did wind one skein of yarn, but have yet to cast on.
And no, I have not finished Larissa Brown’s Lunar Phases shawl either. Sigh…
Do you see a pattern here? Yeah, me too… I can’t settle myself on one project. Perhaps I need to change it up and do some sewing to cleanse my palette! Ha!
Summer reading continues to be awesome though.
Disappearing Earth by Julia Phillips
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This story pulled me in from the first paragraph and it took me on a journey full of unexpected things. I expected something different, but I was far from disappointed! What a beautifully written and engaging story. I know nothing about this area of Russia and I was fascinated with the people and the story. I highly recommend this book!
I also finished Mourning in Malmö late last night and I have yet to write my review. But with that finish, I have another bingo!!
As you can see, I have a plan for where I am going and I have some ideas for “set in the state where you live” but I am on waitlists for several books that will fit this category at the library… and first up will fill the square!What about you? How is your reading moving you this week?
