Wow, how is it already Wednesday again?
I didn’t get much knitting done this week, but I have just cast on for a little hat.
The yarn is a blend of merino wool, microfibre and cashmere, and I’m not sure yet what I think of it. I bought one ball when I saw it on sale, because I loved the colour. The texture is a bit unusual, but I think it might be growing on me..
I finished reading House Rules.
I have mixed feelings about this book. I felt closest to the characters in this book, compared to others by Jodi Picoult, but I don’t think the story was the best she’s ever written.
I like her style of writing, and I think she did a good job researching and depicting the impact of Asperger’s syndrome on one of the characters and those around him – although bearing in mind that this is a work of fiction, some parts may be less realistic than others.
But I felt really quite frustrated that nobody seems to ask the one questions that needs to be asked. I won’t go into detail, in case you’re going to read it, but – argh.
And the ending came a bit quick, and suddenly the book was over.
I still think it is a good read, just not my favourite.
Now. What next?
I’m in a bit of a muddle, both with my reading and my knitting. There are too many things I want to do, can’t do them all at the same time, but want to get them all done. Now.
I am just confusing myself, really.
So hopefully by next week I’ll have sorted myself out.
….Oh, and now I almost forgot. Knitting problem:
My dad asked me to knit him a few pairs of fingerless gloves.
The problem is, they need to be of the heavy duty variety, robust enough to stand up to the friction caused by the dog lead. We thought shoe laces, but I doubt I’ll get a pair long enough… Any other wild ideas would be much appreciated!
