A Sweater, Some Books, and a Weekend of Plans


I've been working on my Wainthropp again this week. I've ordered two more balls of yarn, and they shipped on Wednesday, so hopefully they'll arrive here and I'll be able to finish this before the KAL ends on the 14th. If not, I'll be okay, I just need to keep the momentum going through that second sleeve and the rest of the button bands.

I've also been reading a lot this week. I just finished When Hitler Took Cocaine and Lenin Lost His Brain, which was a fun quick read, and now I'm working through The Good Death: An Exploration of Dying in America. This one's a bit heavier, but it's really interesting. I've always been interested in end of life care and how we approach death, and so far this book is a really good, thoughtful exploration of that.

I've got a couple of fun things this weekend-tonight I'm grabbing dinner with some work friends, tomorrow I'll finally be able to make it to knit group (I only manage to go every few meetings, but I'm really looking forward to it this week), and tomorrow night is my town's annual Dolly Disco, which is a Dolly Parton-themed roller disco to benefit the Imagination Library. Y'all, my town is actually the coolest. I'm also hoping to catch up on some design work-I've let myself really get out of the swing of that, and I have a couple of patterns to write up.

  1. Have fun with your friends and at the disco. That sounds fun. I grew up on roller skates; my daddy used to give me the whip where he'd hold onto one of my arms, spin me around in a circle a few times, and then let go.
