~Reading and Knitting - my favorite duo~
Joining Ginny today for her weekly Yarn Along and you should too!
I've been devouring books lately. I go through reading phases where I can't seem to get enough, how about you?
I finished Splintered --amazing Alice in Wonderland inspired book. Her inspiration was Lewis Carrol and Tim Burton. The book is filled with jaw dropping imagery it was fascinating to read. I picked up Leviathan, but I'm not sure if I'm going to read it or not. I am intrigued by the Star-Wars style AT-AT Walker in it though that the main character is piloting, which is why I picked it up in the first place. My sister told me it's good, so I will probably press-on and get into the book. Secondly I am reading So B. It along with my Mom and a teen I am helping out. I wouldn't say the book is awful, but I don't like it. I am reading it to encourage the kiddo I'm helping out so I guess liking it isn't necessary. So B It is about a teen going off in search of her mentally disabled mother's identity. Thirdly I am reading the fifth installment of the Among the Hidden. It is such a fast paced series that I am devouring it, of course the fact that its only a few hundred pages long and written for elementary reading level helps. The story is so action packed that I think even kids who hate reading would be able to handle a few chapters a day.
My knitting is on hold while I wait for my finger to heal. I have some skin sensitives and I wasn't being careful. The result was that my first knuckle on my right hand ring finger has a painful crack in it that makes bending it near impossible. I tried to knit and keep it straight, but do you know how difficult it is to keep your ring finger straight while the other ones bend? Before I hurt my finger I finished off another ribbed hat and cast on for a pair of fingerless gloves. I knit these gloves before, but this time I'm not putting tips on the fingers. I really hate knitting the fingers of gloves, so hopefully I will follow through with finishing them. I also finished up a felted bowl I started over the summer. I had to felt it twice, I learned a lot in the process.
How about you? How is your reading or knitting going? Feel free to leave a link in the comments!
