Wednesday already? How did that happen???? The more important question is...what has happened to November? The days are swirling along and I'm having a hard time keeping up.
(I 'discovered' it was Wednesday when I was leisurely reading my Bloglovin' list this morning, and there was Ginny's post!!! Eeeep! Now that proves I'm one sorry, retired, out of touch knitter. Surely this would have registered later today as I'm making pies and doing all the pre-Turkey day fussing, right?)
While I'm waiting for the yarn to arrive in my mailbox for the marathon dorm sock frenzy, I'm finishing up hubby's Java socks. One is finished, turned the heel on the second one last night. He always gets socks in his Christmas stocking. I'm in good shape (in spite of the fact that he has big feet).
It's a pattern, though, that doesn't allow me to read and knit at the same time, so this time of year, the reading suffers a bit. Especially when the book is not a page-turning grabber. The Muralist is OK....an arty book, mixing real and fictional characters. Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollack, and Lee Krasner interact with Alizee, a Jewish American muralist trying to bring her French family to the United States during 1939. The storyline is a good one, and if I gave it more than a chapter an evening I would probably be more engaged. I will definitely finish it....just not quickly!
What I have been enjoying a lot are the BBC mini series ModernMasters on YouTube. I've listened to the ones on Picasso and Warhol and still have Matisse and Dali to go. That fun listening might get me through most of that big foot!!!
Joining Ginny for Yarnalong. (Thanks, Ginny, for the Wednesday reminder!!!)
