favorite reads this year

Celestial asked about my favorite reads for the year - so far I've enjoyed Disquiet by Julia Leigh and House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubas. I need to reread Disquiet; there's a lot packed into that small book. House of Sand and Fog is brilliant yet very sad - it's amazing how things quickly unfold in the book and how lives can change in an instant.

reading

I've been reading instead of knitting - do you think my knitting will forgive me?

I'm catching up on that initial book list I created in January that I have been sadly neglecting.

Here are the latest reads:

> House of Sand and Fog - Andre Dubas
> Testimony - Anita Shreve
> Tender is the Night - F. Scott Fitzgerald

knitting along...

Between unpacking and buying things for the new house, I've been able to do a little knitting here and there. I just finished up the Turn A Square hat from Jarod Flood. I made the hat out of some newly acquired stash from a place called Knitty City in NYC. I also started on a new sweater called Swing, Swing. I've frogged quite a bit so far, as the pattern is a little vague. The parts that are done look pretty :) I'll post photos for all of this in the coming week so check back! Sorry I've been a bad blogger lately, but more content will be coming soon. I promise! :)
