I have a cover all for my Stay at Home Book Bingo! Not bad considering there was a point when I couldn’t find my card! But once I found it, I realized a cover all was certainly possible. I finished this one August 15 and I downloaded a second card but have decided that one is enough. I have plenty of great books in my stack and I think I’m going to create a spreadsheet of the books I currently own that have not been read. Part of my problem is that I love talking books and have some well read friends. Every chat or blog visit seems to leave me with more titles for my list. A quality “problem” to be sure. I am currently reading Hum If You Don’t Know the Words a story from the apartheid era in South Africa. Here is a quote from the beginning of the book – “What greater gift can you give another than to say: I see you, I hear you, and you are not alone?” And it just gets better and better. As I work on my retirement routine, I am making plenty of time for reading every day.
I decided to unravel a shawl. I was only at the 25% point but it was not bringing me needle joy so it happily unraveled. If you have read my blog for awhile, you will know that I consider unraveling an opportunity, not a failure. I have an unreasonable amount of fingering yarn, 300-420 years of a variety of colors. And to be honest, I’m burned out on shawl knitting. I might try to talk myself into a multicolored blanket. We will see.
Happy Wednesday. Off to link up with the unraveling crew today.
