My knitting has been very slow this summer. A row here; a row there. Some days, not even a stitch.
I finally finished this earlier this week . . .
That's Kirsten Kapur's Mystery Shawl 2017 -- in all its unblocked glory. (I don't have a good place to block up north, and the well water is just kind of . . . well, smelly. I will block when I get home.)
And now, I'm working on this blob of lace weight . . .
Because, really. With less than 3 weeks until a wedding, shouldn't every mother-of-the-bride be working on a lace shawl with beads for her daughter? (Like the title says, no time for unraveling.)
(If you hear maniacal laughter in the background, just smile and look away.)
Reading continues apace. I may get a Bingo coverall after all, but it's hard to tell at this point. Right now, I'm slogging through John Irving's Last Night in Twisted River (we'll just say . . . this one is NOT A Prayer for Owen Meany* - although it's every bit as long - and leave it at that). I've also just started Beartown (Fredrik Backman) -- which is, so far, everything you've already heard it is. (Watch for a Bingo update post tomorrow for a more detailed look at my recent reading.)
How about you? What are you knitting and reading today?
