And it's already Wednesday again. How did that happen? I've spent the last week or so searching through Ravelry, trying to find a project to inspire me to cast on. I picked up a gorgeous small skein of baby alpaca that I'm just itching to do something with, but have yet to find a project I deem worthy. And all the wool projects are just so...wooly. It's hard to imagine knitting them when it's 77 degrees outside. So, cotton it is. I have quite a few skeins of cheap cotton that I bought years ago when I first decided to re-try knitting. I think it's time to use them up. Next up, Silas is going to get a pair of Kanoko Pants (although, I may make them shorter...little knickers).
I've also been able to find some reading time this week! We're going through a napping transition; from two down to one, I think. But, it's a messy process and several days we end up napping in the rocking chair. Luckily, my abandoned stack of books were still there waiting for me. I grabbed Poser by Claire Dederer and am really enjoying it. It's a memoir of a 30-something Seattle woman using her journey to become "someone who does yoga" as a metaphor for her life as a wife, mother, and former cool kid who spent all her time going to rock shows. It's a very fast read and she's made me both laugh and cry, a hallmark of a good book, I think.
Linking up with Ginny from Small Things.
