Unraveled Wednesday

Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday.

I'm still working on my No Regrets Hitchhiker, and am back to "virgin" yarn after my ripping. I love the feel of this yarn, the name of the colorway, the delightful blend of colors, and the calm that usually comes over me after I've knit a row or two. There's a long way to go, but I'm in no rush.

The Last Days of Night is my last book for a Book Bingo square. While it's been a bit of a slog for me, but there have also been some interesting bits. It's about the "electrifying" feud between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. I'm never much in the mood for a story about two egomaniacal men with some saccharine romance thrown in, but there are some interesting descriptions of AC vs DC and the parts about Nikola Tesla are great. Hopefully I'll be done by the end of the week, and free to read whatever I want!

What are you knitting and reading this week?


  1. Here is to that elusive cover all! You can do it! And, I love your Hitchhiker!

  2. a lovely hitchhiker on the needles :) I'm working on my sweater in high hopes to start casting on some much needed holiday knits, soon!

  3. It's such a treat to reach that "zen state" with your knitting! (I'm looking forward to finding THAT again . . . after my disaster-wedding-shawl. . .)

  4. Your Hitchhiker is looking fabulous! And a cover-all in sight! A good week for sure.

  5. I always love when you get beyond the previously used yarn to the virgin yarn after you've had to rip something back!

  6. Oh, that Hitchhiker is going to be LOVELY!! What a transformation.

  7. Your revised pattern choice looks great! How nice to have a coverall! You are an intrepid reader.

  8. Nice pattern /yarn pairing. Very nice. Im not reading lately. Knitting like a fiend. Photographing for the Stable. Listening to friends who are in tough situations. My turn to be the listener!

    1. Thank you, Kathy! Choosing between reading and knitting time is always a struggle and it is often hard to do both. I'm sure your friends appreciate all your listening; it helps so much to have a friendly ear!
