I’ve written several posts in my head over the past few days. To be honest, by the time I found a chance to write them up I decided I’d rather work on the projects instead.
On the needles . . . Still working on the first Hermione sock (right), turned the heel and half-way down the foot. I’ve had the Color Affection Shawl in my queue for a good long while. When I read about Karen’s cast-on, I was inspired to finally get started. The finished shawl has a tendency to be pretty substantial in size and weight. I’m thinking I might use it more as a wrap inside rather than a shawl to wear out. I made great progress (bottom) while watching the SEC tournament on TV. Then, as if I had nothing else to work on, I cast on for another cowl (top). I’m using the same yarn I used for the last cowl (I Love This Yarn! Colors) in the cappadocia colorway and working out the pattern as I go.
In the journals . . . Almost every day I work in the art journals. I’m following the prompts from The Documented Life Project and Journal 52. Each provides a weekly prompt and I’ve enjoyed trying new techniques and expanding on ideas. I can just never seem to remember to take photos.
On the bookshelf . . . Finished The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club last week. I really enjoyed the mystery and the author’s style. So disappointed to discover that this isn’t a series. I’d love to read more. Next up is Time Flies by Claire Cook. I’m a fan of this author and enjoying the read so far.
So . . . What projects are you working on? Reading anything interesting? I hope you’re enjoying your week.
