“it is an easy mistake to think that non-talkers are non-feelers.”
― Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose
Hello again, new friends! I can't believe a week has already passed. I hope to visit with more of you in your spaces this time around ~ I didn't get to as many as I was hoping last week and I'm looking forward to meeting so many of you.
The needles have been pretty quiet since last we met. Little progress was made on either my Coda or anniversary shawl since life threw us yet another curve ball (or two). I did finish a Purl Soho dishtowel that I've been doing a row or two on occasionally (like many of their patterns, it's free!).
I modified it just a little to make it bigger and also added a grosgrain ribbon loop & vintage plastic button so that I can hang it to dry when needed. I had fun with the finish work since I got to use one of the new sewing pins that Jocelyn sent to me, as well as the needle book that Kelli knit for me years ago (it has been put to much use!).
I started and finished A Passage to India. It was wonderful but I wish that I knew more about that time in history than I do. Many of the period and cultural references were lost on me. I read it straight through to get a feel for the story (it's so well written) and I will read it again, next time stopping when I need to look things up that I'm unsure of so I get a better understanding of the story.
Next up is a reread of one of my favorite books ever (I know I've seen this one on Ginny's shelf) ~ Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner. I highly recommend it (there's a reason it won the Pulitzer Prize). I may not get any knitting done in the next week, either, since I already know this book is so hard to put down!
Can't wait to see what everyone else is up to! Have a great week ~ Melissa
