What's on your needles today?
I didn't feel like knitting on any of my projects yesterday, so I casted on a new one ;)
Hitchhiker in an unknown yarn I got from my mom. I know it's some kind of sockyarn, maybe OnLine..?
The socks I had started last week has a pattern now. I found Scylla and really liked the slipped stitch pattern. My worries is that I will not have enough yarn... I might knit both feet and then see how much yarn I have left.
And finally I picked another ufo from my basket. I started this pair of socks for Endre back in March... So I guess it's about time I finish them so he can wear them before they get too small.
I haven't had much time to read this week, but I managed to read a few chapters in The Yellow House last night. It's not so good yet that I can't put it down, but it seems like the story is getting there.
"Eileen O'Neill's family is torn apart by religious intolerance and secrets from the past. Determined to reclaim her ancestral home and reunite her family, Eileen begins working at the local mill, saving her money and holding fast to her dream. As war is declared on a local and global scale, Eileen cannot separate the politics from the very personal impact the conflict has had on her own life. She is soon torn between two men, each drawing her to one extreme. One is a charismatic and passionate political activist determined to win Irish independence from Great Britain at any cost, who appeals to her warrior's soul. The other is the wealthy and handsome black sheep of the pacifist family who owns the mill where she works, and whose persistent attention becomes impossible for her to ignore."
I'm also reading The 13 1/3 Life of Captain Bluebear. It's a funny and easy read. I have it beside my knitting and read a few pages now and then during the day.
"Captain Bluebear is a bear with blue fur - in other words, a creature as unique as the fantastic adventures he undergoes. Unlike cats, which have only nine lives, bluebears have twenty-seven. This is fortunate, because our hero is forever avoiding disaster by a paw's breadth.In this remarkable book, Captain Bluebear tells the story of his first thirteen-and-a-half lives in a world as far removed from our own as can possibly be imagined: the mysterious continent of Zamonia, where intelligence is an infectious disease and water flows uphill, where headless giants roam deserts made of sugar, and where only Captain Bluebear's courage and ingenuity enable him to escape the dangers that lie in wait for him around every corner."
