I recently read a blog post by a knitter who routinely shares the status of both her projects and books she is reading. She always ends with “So what’s on your needles? What are you reading?”
I am using Anzula’s ”Cloud” (100g=575y/525m). It is hand-dyed 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon. Every time I knit this in public, at least two people come up to oooh and aaah over the pattern and yarn. The other evening knitting in the quiet of the kitchen, Thor came in and, seeing the wrap draped over a shoulder and my chest, stopped and said, “Wow, it’s stunning!” (Kudos to Linda Marveng!)
Here’s what I’m reading:
Maps and guides to the city of Portland, Oregon. Thor and I are busy packing up getting ready to move north. Recently we drove up for a quick trip to locate a place to live (temporarily), and I got to be a pretty good navigator. (Honest translation: I sat in the passenger seat with my iPad on my lap and learned how to use the iMap feature.)
Now, using Netflix, we’re working our way through the episodes of a show called Portlandia.
Oh dear. Someone please tell me the show exaggerates … a lot!
