Let the blue sky meet the blue sea and all is blue for a time. — Moncy Barbour
I am in sea of blue knitting and it is so good! I am working away on my second Ranunculus… I have put the body on hold and have started on the sleeves. One thing I did not take into my calculations on the first sweater was “growth” which does happen with this yarn knit at this gauge. So, I wanted the sleeves and body to be a wee bit shorter, and I ordered 1 less skein of yarn. But, that niggling feeling that I might not have enough yarn is circling around my brain. To appease that feeling, I started on the sleeves.
I also went back to trying to finish up the “never-ending” seed stitch section of Purl Strings. I am happy to say, the little bits of time I plugged in worked and I am done with that section! Woo!
One would wonder if I am actually trying to achieve a Bingo Cover All, lol… or perhaps which bingo card will get that cover all first! Ha! I am in a bit of a holding pattern on bingo card one, and have focused on bingo card two mainly because of holds that became available from the library. That was the case with this week’s reading (and will likely continue next week…and I should definitely get bonus points for creative square filling!!)
Finn has “moved” back to Lewis and is grappling with his past, his present, and his future. He is working to make his parents house livable. And what happens? A body found in the peat, a mystery to be unraveled. What unfolds is a bitter tale of life for orphans. The story was gripping, the writing brilliant and this was an excellent continuation of Finn’s story. I highly recommend this book!
I had higher hopes for this book based on the brilliant start, but I soon got lost in the weeds of jumping around from problem to problem…The book touches on some significant topics but never really goes beyond scratching the surface of them.
That is all I have for today. Do you have a “never-ending” project going? Inquiring minds want to know!
