Unraveled Wednesday

Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday and what I hope might be a penultimte look at this Hitchhiker. I didn't knit very much at all on it while Ryan was here, but now I'm back at it, and that rapidly shrinking blank is spurring me on. It's almost all dark green but I'm anxious to see how that dark green looks on the Hitchhiker itself. Hopefully I'll see soon ... maybe by next week?

I read a thoroughly interesting four-star book this past week, State of the Heart. It's about the history, science, and future of cardiac disease, and full of empowering information and knowledge. The chapter on women and how heart disease affects them, along with how women's symptoms can differ markedly from those of men is something that I think almost every female would benefit from reading. 

I'm also reading three other great books, After the End, Olive, Again, and Snowball in a Blizzard. There are times that I can't seem to find a book that captures my attention, but I'm finding every one of these books interesting and fascinating, each in different ways. So many good books!

What are you making and reading this week?


  1. Oh my! Gorgeous, Bonny! I love how gradual the color change is as it eases from one shade of green to another! And, your books! You help me increase my "read soon" list!

  2. That Hitchhiker is going to be AMAZING!! I can't wait to see that dark green knit up (I see a lot of blue in there, too)! So pretty!

  3. I love the color changes in your Hitchhiker!
    I finally finished EB White's letters and in spite of the length, I could have read on and on! I just started The Map of Salt and Stars, I'm only about 50 pages in and so far, I like it. I just got a text that An Elegant Defense is waiting for me at the library!

    1. Thanks, Debbie! I've got EB White's Letters on hold at the library and can't wait to dig in once it's available. I was a little surprised it was checked out, but glad there are other EB White devotees. An Elegant Defense is also on my list, so I hope you enjoy it, and I'll look forward to your review.

  4. I love how your Hitchhiker is knitting up and am getting excited that the end is in sight!

    I'm impressed that you can read that many books at once. I've only recently managed to do two at a time, though I had some challenges recently when I had two murder mysteries going at once and kept confusing the plots.

  5. The Hitchhikers that change color are the most interesting, but your shades of green Hitchhiker might be the most intriguing one yet! The bright green is going to look smashingly beautiful against that darker green. I one who isn't totally enamored with Elizabeth Strout's writing but I am interested to hear what you think of Olive, Again. (I'm kind of thinking Olive, again?

  6. I hope you reveal how many teeth are in it at the end, just curious. I love the gradient!!
