Linking up with
Knitting: My stripe tease sock is coming along great and I am about to knit the toe. I do think they might me to short for me though... But I am not frogging all those stripes. The red and white you can spot in the corner is a secret project I am working on. I spotted a post on facebook some weeks ago about a book publisher who needed knitters who could knit up jackets, sweaters and hats for a new book that is coming out at the end of the year. So I sent them an e-mail and yesterday the yarn came in the mail :) I am knitting a jacket and a hat. Struggling a bit to get the right gauge, so I think I must frog and go up a needles size... A bit scary to knit for others, but fun also and I get paid. So money to buy new yarn ;)
Reading: I picked up some books at the library last week, and one of them was The Flying Troutmans. I am about half way through it and I love it! It's heartbreaking and funny at the same time.
Min was stranded in her bed, hooked on the blue torpedoes and convinced that a million silver cars were closing in on her (I didn't know what Thebes meant either), Logan was in trouble at school, something about the disturbing stories he was writing, Thebes was pretending to be Min on the phone with his principal, the house was crumbling around them, the black screen door had blown off in the wind, a family of aggressive mice was living behind the piano, the neighbours were pissed off because of hatchets being thrown into their yard at night (again, confusing, something to do with Logan) … basically, things were out of control. And Thebes is only eleven
What are you reading and knitting or crocheting this week?
