Before I get into today’s post I just want to say thank you for all of your kind words of support and encouragement on yesterday’s post. It’s not an easy thing for me to share the powerlessness and shame I have dealt with in my life and it means so much to me that I can be vulnerable with all of you and feel safe and protected in this space.
Okay, let’s talk about knitting and reading because today I am joining with Kat and friends to do just that. More specifically, let’s talk about vacation knitting and reading.
There was knitting.
Not a lot, as you can see, but a bit every day on these Geek Socks from Knitty. It’s a really fun and easy pattern and perfect for self-striping yarn like this Vesper Sock Yarn in the color Falling Water from Knitterly Things. It’s a great pattern for social knitting and I know you all know just what I mean by that.
There was reading.
I finished four books while we were on vacation (updates and reviews on the specific titles when I do my next reading post) and I am currently reading The Strangers on Montagu Street by Karen White. It’s the 3rd in the Tradd Street mystery series and they are light and fun and perfect for summer. I enjoy that they are set in Charleston and the supernatural addition to what is otherwise a cozy mystery is definitely interesting to me. Is it great literary fiction? Nope. But sometimes that’s okay.
And that’s my vacation knitting and reading update. What are you knitting and reading this week?
