Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I’m checking in with the folks over at As Kat Knits to share knitting and reading progress. It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve done one of these, so I’ve got a good amount of reading to share!
On the knitting front, I was trying to decide what to do since I finished the Shawlography MKAL so early. I do plan to do that for each of the weeks – knit a lot on the weekend after it’s been released, but and then have the week to work on other things. We’ll see this week though, because I’m going up to Vermont Friday night to hang with my friends (and I’m driving), and then Rhinebeck is Sunday. I am a passenger for Rhinebeck, but I’m not sure I want to drag the whole thing with me. Also, I think Stephen said this clue is more stitches so I might not finish it over the weekend. Anyway, I spent most of Sunday and Monday’s knitting time working on my reverse Monkey socks, and actually finished the first one Monday night. Instead of casting on the second sock, I decided to cast on a sweater, because why not. I had been meaning to make the Wavelength for a while, and it feels like it’s been a bit of time since I made a sweater. I mean I know I finished my Rhinebeck sweater in July and made a crop top in August but… All the fall weather lately has me wanting more knitwear so here we go.
Since last checking in on my reading, I have finished two books I really enjoyed! The Mystery of Mrs Christie and The Only Woman in the Room, both by Marie Benedict. And when looking up those links, I realized that a book I read earlier this year, The Other Einstein is by the same author. I liked these two a bit better than The Other Einstein. I’m a huge Agatha Christie fan, so I enjoyed diving into that world and the way the story was constructed. The Only Woman in the Room started a little slowly, but by the end I was just fascinated by the person/ character of Hedy Lamar. Benedict has a couple more of these historical fiction books, and I’ll need to check those out.
I’m still working through All In, the Billie Jean King autobiography. In addition, I started The Address by Fiona Davis. I read another book by Davis that I really liked a few years ago, and when this one popped up on my Libby holds I decided to start. I really like the premise but right now I’m at a point where both main characters have made poor decisions and I think I need to get through that before truly enjoying it.
Hope everyone is having a great week! What are you working on and reading?
