It feels like it has been ages since I've written an yarn along post - I've missed the rhythm it brings to my week and I've missed reading all of your posts as well. Can't wait to see what you all have been up to lately.
I haven't felt very productive this month - I think this long winter got to me on some level - but when I look back at my last pictures of these socks and think about the little bits of reading I've done, I wasn't as unproductive as I thought. I've made such progress on those socks - and as I'm coming into the home stretch, I'm really appreciating the fact that I won't have a second sock to knit once I'm done.
In addition to using this tutorial to get me started on this knitting method, I used this post to help me with the heels. I should also mention that these are Fit Well socks - a lovely, free pattern from here.
I didn't finish A Handmaid's Tale - I enjoyed it very much, but had to return it to the library before I could finish it. Hopefully I'll get to pick it up again soon.
But since we last spoke, I've read Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's (and a couple of his other short stories - I really enjoyed House of Flowers) and Neil Gaiman's Coraline. Both were quick to read, beautifully written, and had been on my list for quite some time.
Now I'm reading Harry Potter (en francais) during my waking hours and Bossypants by Tina Fey before bed and I'm not very far along in either - my reading speed in French is much slower than it is in English, especially since I haven't practiced in quite some time. And Bossypants is pretty amazing so far. I'll tell you more about it next week once I've read a bit more.
Happy Wednesday, friends.
