I don’t know about you, but I have some serious Knitting-ADD going on right now. I can’t seem to focus on any one thing and keep at it until it is finished! I spent some time last week going through my stash and odds and ends to see what I could find to make a sweater for Winston. I settled on five colors from two Blue Ridge Yarns Footlight sets and some left over yarn from a previous project and printed off a copy of ML Egan’s Leland (sorry no links to Ravelry any more) and cast on Monday night! I think it will be the perfect wintry sweater and I am loving how these colors look together! Why did I suddenly have the urge to cast on? Well, my daughter sent this photo and it was the best reminder that I needed to get moving on a sweater for that sweet boy! My nana heart aches that I cannot hold him, but Vivi promised me she is holding him all.the.time! I think she is doing an excellent job!

Vivi’s winning the mani/pedi contest (and I am in awe that her mom found the time to do that!) and that yawn!!

I have not forgotten Ranunculus, but neither have I picked it up since Sunday…I am on sleeve island and almost done with the first sleeve and I really want to get it done but, yeah. That desire is not inspiring me to stay project-monogamous..at all, lol.

Fortunately, my reading has been much more focused! I do love audiobooks, but sometimes a book does not work in the audio form… Song Yet Sung was one of those books for me. But The Summer Book was PERFECT!! And I have been reminiscing about similar conversations I had with my nana and chuckling to myself. I had sooo many questions and so many crazy ideas but my nana was as lovely as Sophia’s grandmother! I am sure my nana spent lots of time wondering where the hell that conversation came from! Haha!

Sometimes listening to a book is not the way to read it. This was one of those times. I struggled to keep up with the cast of characters. I needed to have a book where I could flip back to remember. Still, the story is compelling… I recommend reading it versus listening to it!

Gathering is peculiar, because you see nothing but what you’re looking for.

This book was wonderful. A friend stated that this book was one of the best reads of the pandemic and I wholeheartedly agree! This book is a conversation between a grandchild and her grandmother, and I loved every word! I saw conversations I had with my nana in these words. I laughed, I cried, and I did not want to leave Sophia’s island! I highly recommend!

That is all I have for today, if you wrote a post to share please leave your link below and thank you!
