No one we knew was killed or injured in the attack on Friday. And although we have tried to shield the kids from news broadcasts, etc., they know what has happened. It is in these situations, it appears how different they are. While some of them do not think so much about it, there are some who think and ponder. And I think it's hard to explain how it is possible that a person can be so vicious. And not least, I think it is difficult to promise that something like this will not happen again ...
Many have said and written about what has happened, but for me I think this statement says it all.
When one man could cause so much evil - think about how much love we can create together.
And life must go on, so even though it feels like the days have stood still, it's Wednesday again and time for Yarn Along and WIP Wednesday.
Reading: I finished The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber last night. And even though I was sure the end would not be a happy end, it surprised me. Not by being happy, but by being surprising. I've pulled out a book that's been laying on my shelf for a long time. I read a couple of chapters before other books took it's place. Queen of Swords is the 5th book in the Into the Wilderness seris by Sara Donati. I love this series! And I'm not sure why I put this book aside... but I look forward to read more about the Bonner family and their strong women.
Crocheting: My potholders are done. Eirin's socks is also off the needles, but I'llblog about them later ;) The shawl... well, I've ripped it. I casted off the other day, but it was too small... I really regret not casting on more stitches... So I'm looking for the inspiration to cast on again. Instead I've started to seam together the blanket I've been crocheting from leftover sock yarn. It might not be the prettiest thing I've made, but I love it and hope to have it finished soon :) I haven't made any progress on the cowl, but I might finish it before the months is over due to Project Spectrum ;)
So, what are you knitting/crocheting and reading this week??
