So, what do I have for today? Well, I'm gonna join Kat and the others for Unraveled Wednesdays, for one thing. Why not? I have knitting and I have reading, so here goes.
The reading is a cozy mystery, because a) I was in the mood for something quick and not overly challenging, and b) I wanted to read something before I could pick up the book on hold for me at the library. So I'm reading this, which is a new series to me:

So far, it's really entertaining, and is even more well-written than I expected, so that is a plus. And I may be able to even work it into one of my Book Bingo squares, which would be a nice bonus. We'll see.
The knitting is something besides a sock this time. Rest assured, I'm still working on my Orange Tabby Socks, but you've seen what they look like, so here's some variety for you this week. It lives in this natural-history themed project bag, which has become one of my most favorites.
And as you have heard, I'm making a Sonora Shawl. I'm calling mine Scattered Wishes, because the blue colorway is called Wish, and it's used only in a few places. Here is what I have so far, mushed up and unblocked, but still fun to knit and pleasing to me.
I just finished the second color section, so it's growing pretty quickly. I highly recommend this pattern. I'm using stash yarn, which does not have the same loft as the recommended yarn, but I am still loving it - so much so, I can completely imagine making another one before too long!
Of course I was zooming along on it before it got really icky, weather-wise, so I'm not sure if things continue as they are if I'll feel like having something this size on my lap to knit ... so it may become a nice-day project, which is fine, since then it will feel like a treat!
How about you? What are you knitting, reading, thinking, doing, eating, whatever? Inquiring minds want to know. :-)
