In a rare move (because I don't knit enough to have weekly updates, really) I…
Unraveled Wednesday 5-24-2023
Two weeks in a row with an Unraveled Post? Could this become a series?
I’m happy to report that I am 100% back on track with my Same As It Ever Was hat. I’m making steady progress, having attended a few meetings and watched some good television. I’ve got a concert to attend at our high school tonight and you can bet this project will be with me.
As for reading, I have just about finished You Could Make This Place Beautiful, Maggie Smith’s memoir about the end of her marriage . . . and so much more. It’s beautifully written, of course, and captures an incredible range of emotions without ever feeling maudlin or overwrought.
What are you making and reading this week?

That hat is looking great! 🙂
But… You Could Make This Place Beautiful… I loved it so much. I am so glad you did too!
That hat is just so lovely! The yarn is beautiful and I particularly like the pop of blue early on. I finally wound a bunch of yarn yesterday and actually started another pair of socks!
A good knitting project and a good book – perfect together!
So glad to hear the hat is back on track! The colorway is really knitting up nicely.
I’m back to working on one of two sweaters I have on the needles, and at the moment that means a lot of garter stitch. I’m also close to finishing up a couple of books: The Bean Trees and The Centre (an ARC).
Your book sounds so good! I’m reading Egg.
Knitting: a Nupkin (Wooly Wormhead design) baby hat in overly colorful sock yarn. My least favorite project ever, but the recipient’s mother likes it.
Reading: “Rodham,” by Curtis Sittenfeld, a fictional alternative history about Hillary and Bill. I read the ending first!
