Unraveled Wednesday

Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday, where you can unravel the stories you are reading and share your crafting inspiration – knitting, crochet, spinning, sewing, quilting, weaving, drawing, watercolors ... whatever!


I'm still reading The Dark Flood Rises this week. It's a good book, but I really only make the time to read it for half an hour or so at night, and that means the danger of falling asleep is always nearby. I finished listening to The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane a couple days ago; my review is here if you're interested. The real treat in reading this week is listening to Lincoln in the Bardo. I'm only about a third of the way through, but already know that George Saunders is a genius and the narration is equally brilliant. 

In knitting, I regained some long-lost sock mojo to finish one of these socks and start the second. I had hoped to have the pair done by now, but maybe by the weekend? I do love the blue in this yarn and hope these will be comfortable walking socks.

What are you reading and knitting this week?

  1. Love the yarn for your socks - great blues in it. And your knitting bag looks great too - do tell... Glad I read your review of Tea Girl - think I'll skip that one. I have read another book by Lisa See, but the fact that I can't even remember the title says something.... The Dark Flood Rises looks very interesting - will be looking for your review of that!

  4. Lincoln in the Bardo... I am LOVING that book. I'm going to have to hold it in my hands at some point, though, and actually look at the pages. And probably listen to it (or at least parts of it) again.

    Yay socks!! I, too, love your knitting bag. ;)

  7. Since I'm rather partial to blues I love your socks and the quilt. I'm still working through Kavalier and Clay (and loving it) and working a pair red/white/brown stripy socks.

  10. I'm sitting in my chair in a vegetative state most evenings right now. Work is relentless and only getting more so. I don't have much left at the end of the day right now! Though thank goodness I can still mix a decent cocktail! Love those socks!!!

  13. I'm reading LitB right now, and loving it. I'm reading the print-version, and cannot imagine how anyone can narrate it!!! (Have you seen it in print?) I'm going to have to listen to the audio version now, too. Because the book must be pure magic -- any way you read it!
