The beginning of the summer this came off my needles. And right before that...this top. Shortly thereafter, I cast on Rill (in the bird bowl) and then last week, the Silverleaf shawl appeared on my needles for a KAL Tracey is hosting. (how did THAT happen? Tracey, you enabler you!)
Granted, this last WIP is using donated yarn (so I didn't a-c-t-u-a-l-l-y choose it, it sort of chose me) and it will go to our church shawl ministry (so I won't OWN another green item), but that doesn't take away from the fact that I've been knitting with the same colour almost all summer. (And that colour is not grey.) And I'm really tired of it. Which in all likelihood will doom both of these projects.
Add in the fact that I really should be knitting baby gifts...4 new souls are on the horizon! Boy, boy, girl....and ???? (the parents aren't going to find out.) Blue, blue, pink.....and you can bet it's not going to be green!
Reading? (This IS linked to Yarnalong, after all!)
I just finished Jo Nesbo's Devil's Star. Another nail-biting, page-turning Scandinavian thriller with Harry Hole in the lead role. I have loved every Nesbo suspense novel I've read ...this was no exception. Definitely, escapist lit.
Next up is Late Nights on Air by Elizabeth Hay, a book I won on a giveaway hosted by my blog friend, Diane. Stay tuned....I think I'll pass this along in the same way, with the only 'condition' being that it continues to be passed along.
And because I knew you were wondering...
The cover of the book is green.
