i'm reading book #5 in my summer reading program for adults (the 4th was a cookbook about seasonal and regional cooking... aaand, i've peeked into The Everlasting Meal as well, can't wait to start that one!) i've been reading in Everyday Blessings probably for almost a year now, but the chapters i have now reached are more practical (the first are quite philosophical, which is good, but they took me a while to get through) so i am hoping to finish this book by the end of the month, which is also when the program ends.
i have cast on the Global Warming sweater in a dark grey yarn with a bright orange trim. i am planning on making it longsleeved, and maybe make straight sleeves instead of puffed ones. this sweater will take me a while, i think, which is not due to the pattern, but the amount of knitting i get done these days.... let's say i consider a round a day a success. in the evenings when everything's quiet i'm just too tired to pick up my needles. but it's a phase, and i'm trying to savour this tiring, intense and wild, yet so joy-filled time as good as i can!
i'm joining ginny's yarn along.
what are you knitting and reading? just to let you know i read most of the posts in the linkup, it's just that i only have one free hand most of the time, which makes writing comments a bit tedious, but i do enjoy checking on your projects and books!
