Knitting: Slow but steady, Griff’s sweater has entered the next stage. Looks long enough to me. Time to work a ribbed bottom and start the sleeves. It’s very big on him, but I figure that’s a good thing. Maybe he will get a couple of years out of it.
Reading: While knitting has slowed down, reading has sped right up. I finished three great books over the last two weeks. Knitting Under the Influence by Claire LaZebnik was a fantastic summer read. It’s a Sex in the City meets knitting story. I really recommend it. Next, I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, a dark love story with lots of twists and turns. I heard it recommended on the Today Show and thought it sounded like a cool murder/suspense story. Although, filled with vulgar language and some violence, it was a page turner for sure. Lastly, I stayed up late last night to finish Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I know I am late to the party on this book, but I did really enjoy it. I liked how fast paced it was, however, I did have trouble with the concept. All in all, it left me anxious to read the next book in the series. Next up, State of Wonder by Ann Patchett.
