No unraveling here this week but no real knitting progress either. This is (still) sock number 1 of my Disco Superfly socks. It’s all good but I find it interesting that I brought another skein of sock yarn with me to New York City to start a new pair in anticipation of finishing these on our trip. The reality? I didn’t knit a single stitch. In fact, I never even took them out of my bag! I spent my time on the train reading and really didn’t have any down time while in the city. Sure, it would have been cool to knit in Central Park or on the subway, but I was only carrying a very small cross body bag while we traipsed around and there wasn’t room for my knitting in that bag. If I was being honest about my habits I could have predicted this but a knitter is nothing if not hopeful and we always want to have a back up project.
The same goes for reading, honestly, which is why I love my kindle. I thought I’d finish The Great Believers on our trip and if I was carrying real books I’d have brought a back up. Or two. With my kindle that’s never a concern since I’ve generally got my maximum allowed number of check outs from Overdrive at all times. I did finish The Great Believers right after we got back and I’m now reading When They Call You a Terrorist, which is as heartbreaking and powerful as you might expect.
And that’s it for me this week. I’ll be sharing this post over at Kat’s to join with my fellow unravelers but I still want to know . . . what are you knitting and reading right now?
