|Hat #17 out of 52|
I started hat #17 and am only a few rows away from bind off. It's a simple stockinette hat, knit with Hawthorne Vancouver from Knit Picks. I just love this colorway. It's a blend of all my favorite colors - turquoise, hints of grapey purple, reddish/brownish burgundy and golden greens. And I'm going to have enough left over to knit matching fingerless gloves. Yay!!
As for my reading, I broke my book monogamy rule. I'm currently reading four books, which is unheard of for me. First, I'm only a chapter or two away from finishing Weird Hikes, I'm about half way through Circle of Blood, I'm trying to spend 30 minutes a day (but failing miserably) reading Never Eat Alone, and just yesterday, I picked up Scar Tissue.
I've enjoyed Weird Hikes and Circle of Blood is okay. My Kindle recommended it because I liked the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Several of the Black Dagger books I devoured in one sitting. Circle of Blood isn't holding my attention nearly as well, but it's still an okay story so far. It's just moving at a lot slower pace and my expectations may have been slightly too high. Never Eat Alone is encouraging me to leave my introverted bubble occasionally, so that's good. And then there's Scar Tissue. I'm excited to have stumbled across this book. It's a biography of Anthony Kiedis from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I've been a Chili Pepper fan since the '80's so it's pretty much a given that I'll enjoy reading about Kiedis's life.
And best of all, my new eye glasses finally arrived so I can actually see to read! Yay!!
