I don't really suppose that this post can qualify as a "Yarn Along" post given that I don't have any yarn in the photos. I haven't been in much of a mood to knit and the only thing I have been working on was a really boring knit dishcloth. It's in a variegated yarn that isn't working up nicely in the pattern I am doing but frankly, I don't care a whole lot since it's a dishcloth and I plan to use it. I love the hand-knit ones. I know, that qualifies me officially as an old lady but I am not apologizing. Sometimes, I just need to work on something mindless and that won't take me very long.
Part of the reason that I have been knitting "mindless" lately is that I have been massively overtired because I have been staying up too late reading. I finished Diva's Don't Knit earlier this week (cute - think Bridget Jones meets the local stitch-n-bitch) and have been hopping around with several books. I don't know why I can't pin myself down.
Here's the pile on the go right now -
The Irrational Season by Madeleine L'Engle, which is book three of the Crosswick Journals, which I am enjoying but which is a very heavy read
Mended by Angie Smith - devotional stuff that I am enjoying but needs some time for reflection, which I don't really have right now
Almost Amish by Nancy Sleeth, which I have been coming back to off and on for a while, which has many great ideas but is a bit earnest for my taste
and the two books for this week:
Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Patillo and
Greater by Steven Furtick
Jane Austen Ruined My Life was something that I stumbled across when I was at the library with the kids last week. As soon as you say Jane Austen you have my attention and when I saw that our library had at least three books by the same author in what appears to be a series, I had to give it a try. So far, I'm about 100 pages in and I am enjoying it. It's a nice, light read and given that it's set in England and has a mystery at its centre, it's right up my alley. I hope I continue to like it since I would be thrilled to have a few other books to which to look forward.
What are you reading right now?
