Hello there - it's Wednesday, so we've just about gotten this week under our belts. Yesterday and supposedly today, it's supposed to be in the mid- to high 70s, so we are getting a little bit of spring to tide us over. Of course, on my way to work, I was behind two girls who looked to be in their 20s, and they were both dressed in tank tops, shorts, and flip flops. One said to the other, "Now that the weather has changed, I spent last night putting away all of my winter clothes. It felt so good!" I can only wonder if it will still feel good when it goes back to being winter. Then again, who am I to judge? Maybe she's a glass half-full person ...
At the moment, I'm working on two knitting projects (soon to be three). One is not really that photographically interesting, as it's just plain stockinette for a while on a darkish blue yarn. Not much to see, and even harder to photograph. So for Unraveled Wednesday, I'm sharing the other project, my Vanilla Valentine Socks in progress:
As you can see, one is ready to have the heel turned, and the other nearly at the heel flap. Since the yarn is so happily stripey, I'm just making plain vanilla socks. The yarn is from Must Stash, and I've had it in my stash for a year or so. The colorway is Be Mine, which I think is appropriate for February, don't you? I do have to say that I had forgotten how much fun it is with self-striping yarn to watch the stripes unfold!
I'm also currently involved with two books - the one above, that being a language and word nerd, I am loving! I can however, easily see that for a lot of people, it would be a total slog.
I've also just started The Amber Spyglass in audio form. I'd read the two earlier books in this series, but had never gotten to this one. And since the author just published a prequel which I'd like to read, I decided it was time to finish the series. I'm not very far into it yet, but am enjoying it already.
And what have you been up to, knitting- and reading-wise? Anything you particularly love in either area?
