Joining with Kat and friends today to show you what I'm knitting and what I'm…
Today I’m joining Kat and friends with an update on knitting and reading.
On my needles:
Cat Bordhi’s Rio Calina Cowl. She released it with the news of her impending death which, sadly, has now happened. Her words about it, though, are lovely: It looks complex but is SO simple. It teaches you to let go and allow the spatial brilliance and inherent grace of nature create a unique stream of cabled rivulets. I’m allowing myself to be free (open?) with the cable placements and I’ve truly discovered that letting go can be incredibly beautiful.
In my ears: Apeirogon by Colum McCann. Several of you have already read/listened to this and recommended it passionately. I’m only a few hours in and I love it. Interestingly enough, the structure is sort of like those cables in the Rio Calina Cowl, letting go of the rules has allowed for a unique and incredibly beautiful book.
Before my eyes: Begin Again by Eddie S. Glaude Jr. Part biography of James Baldwin and part commentary on the systemic racism that is pervasive in America, this one is making me think. A lot.
And that’s what I’m knitting and reading today. How about you?
