Last week there was little to no making because we were gone for 10-ish days. (There was some sewing and the elastic waist band insertion and hemming of said sewing is on my list for today!)
This week there has been little to no making because we leave Friday for Michigan for 10-ish days. So there are all the things to get ready to go again… plus some extras for the grands!
So what do I have to share with you all this week? Just a passel of freshly laundered hand-knits! Monday was just glorious here in Pittsburgh and I took full advantage of the day. I washed 10 sweaters and one Clapotis and the best part… I dried them all outside. The winds really helped and by the time I was ready to cook dinner, they were all dried!
Maintaining making is more important than the making, right? This week that’s my story! LOL
The reading this week was just so good!
The Madness of Crowds by Louise Penny
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Everyone is back in Three Pines and life could not be better! Or can it? This installment takes us places Gamache and crew have never gone. It was fascinating watching everyone work out the moral dilemma…for some it seemed easy, for others… well, it was some work.
Timely (although I wish we, like Three Pines, were done with COVID!) and thought provoking.
The Fallen Angel by Daniel Silva
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was much happier with this installment of the Allon escapades! He is working on restoring some artwork for The Vatican… and of course someone dies. And that leads Gabriel and his team on a twisting, turning mission. But are they all connected? You must read to find out.
I liked the ending very much and it appears that Gabriel and Chiara are heading back to Israel for good!
I highly recommend this series!
That is all I have for this week… and sadly next week there will be no Unraveled Wednesday. I will be in Michigan making up for lost time with my family.
As always, if you wrote a post to share please leave you link below and thank you! See you all back here on Wednesday, October 13th!
I hope you have a lovely time and soak up all that grand love 🙂 Washing knits is one of my chores that doesn’t feel like a chore at all!! Safe travels!
I think we’re all VERY willing to give up Unraveled Wednesday for a week while you make up for lost time with your family!!! (I’m so excited for you. And you’re headed to Michigan’s most-vaccinated area, too – so BONUS.) Your pile of knits looks great — all ready for cooler weather ahead. XO
Maintaining making is indeed important, and your piles of washed woolens look great! They probably smell wonderful and are ready to wear and keep you warm. I am very happy to give up Unraveled Wednesday if it means you can at long last visit dear family in Michigan! Safe travels and get and give loads of hugs!
You are reminding me that I really need to wash a load of sweaters now, before I start putting them in regular rotation again!
I am glad to hear another good review of the newest Gamache; it’s next on my TBR pile.
I hope you have a wonderful time in Michigan with the grands, and making the most of your time with them is an excellent reason to skip an Unraveled Wednesday!
Well if THAT’S not a gorgeous fall palette, I don’t know what is!
Safe travels!! So glad it’s a go this time around.
I’m so excited for you that you are going to Michigan and you will be seeing your family!! I’m still holding off on The Madness of Crowds, savoring the anticipation of Three Pines and my favorite characters.
Enjoy every minute in Michigan and don’t give Unraveled Wednesday another thought. Safe travels.
Hope your time away is invigorating and refreshing. I loved the latest LP-unreal yet very real at the same time.
