I thought I had this post all set to go yesterday . . . and…
I’m trying to get back into the habit of posting every weekday so, even though I don’t have a lot to say today, I’m joining in with Kat and the other unravelers to talk about knitting and reading.
I’m knitting socks. The colors are Christmas-y because I started them in December, the pattern is my standard picot edge sock. I’m not sure who they are for, that usually comes to me at some point during the process and, if it doesn’t, I will tuck them away until the moment is right.
I’m reading Killers of the Flower Moon and finding it pretty compelling. It’s making me angry and I want justice for the Osage people but (not really a spoiler alert given our history of treatment of Native Americans) I don’t think that’s going to happen.
I’m listening to Between To Kingdoms, a memoir about a young woman’s battle with and recovery from leukemia. It’s engrossing and heartbreaking and also hopeful. It’s also a bit personal to me as a young man in the community where I worked died last year of this same illness. I can’t help but think about his family and all they’ve been through as I’m absorbing this story.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
