Now that it's October, let's take a look back at the books I read in…
I’m joining with Kat and my fellow knitters today to take about knitting, unraveling, and reading.
You may recall that I was knitting a hat. Three weeks ago, I shared that I my gauge was off and I had to unravel way back to make it smaller. Two weeks ago, I shared that I was on track and moving forward at a terrific clip. Today, I have this:
Yep. I actually finished it last Saturday and realized it was plenty big around but awfully short. And that’s when I took a close look at the yarn label and saw this:
253 yard does not equal a double thickness hat. Sigh.
The yarn is now in time out. The knitter is utterly dismayed at her own stupidity. And the pattern is set aside for vacation knitting later this month.
As for reading, that’s going much better. I recently finished the excellent Fight Night by Miriam Toews and I’m currently reading Saturday Night at the Lakeside Supper Club by J. Ryan Stradal. I’m about 1/3 of the way into it and enjoying it so far but a little guarded since readers I trust did not like it.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
