|Honeycomb Sweater & The Secret Garden|
Perhaps you can tell from that fascinating photo that I've finished the back of my Honeycomb sweater and have started the front. (And that I also need to clean the fish bowl.) Honeycomb is a cabled sweater from Knit Pick's Woodsmoke Cable Collection. I'm knitting it with Wool of the Andes and it's knitting up fairly quickly, despite my grumblings about its slowness. Considering how little time and effort I've actually spent knitting on it and considering how long it's been since I knit anything heavily cabled, it's progressing fairly quickly.
So that's my knitting. As for reading.... I've been a little embarrassed about my choice of books lately. It always seems everyone else participating in the Yarn Along is reading uplifting and/or educational books and I'm over here reading a YA vampire romance or something. I decided 2017 was going to be the year I read better. I'll always read and enjoy the ridiculous romance fluff but there's no reason why I can't read an occasional uplifting and/or educational book too. One a month, that's my goal for 2017.
So, laying in bed the other night, I started Wuthering Heights. I got all of about three paragraphs into it and vaguely remembered the entire book being cold, rainy and rather depressing. (I read it for English class back in high school. Which means I skimmed the first few paragraphs of each chapter.) Anyway... Wuthering Heights wasn't the right choice for a cold, icy February night.
I noticed The Secret Garden was on my list. Gardens, flowers, spring.... that sounded like a much better choice. So, that's what I'm reading - and enjoying. It's just that books on the Kindle don't make for interesting photos.
