Yarn Along


Reading: Burial Rites, by Hannah Kent. I've been wanting to read this book for the longest time, and I'm excited to finally get to it! So far I'm loving it, though it's definitely not my usual sort of read. (It's based on the true story of a woman who was charged with murder and executed in Iceland in the 1800s.) The writing is beautiful and even though it's rather slow-moving at this point, it's completely engrossing. (And isn't that cover gorgeous?)

Knitting: I feel like I'm between knitting projects at the moment, which always makes me feel oddly unsettled. I just finished my mint chocolate socks...all that's left is to sew up the toe. Over the past couple of weeks, I've mostly been knitting baby and children's hats to sell, but after I do two more this week, I'll be finished with that for a while. So I'm deciding on my next "big" project. I'm going to be starting a new cardigan soon, but I'm trying to decide whether I should squeeze in another smaller project first. :)
