Knitting: Phew, everything. There are some projects I really want to finish up before the end of the year (my Droving socks — I’m on the foot, so home stretch! — and my Rocquaine sweater, which needs one more sleeve and bottom ribbing). I was chugging along on both of them when I decided, at the last minute, that I needed to whip up some hottie covers as Christmas presents. The purple one is almost done, then on to the gray!
Reading: Remembering Babylon, by David Malouf. I’ve returned to this since finishing my mystery (guys, I guessed the killer!) and am starting to get into it. It’s very evocatively written, with, (so far at least) really interesting things to say about interpretation, between cultures and between individual, colonial encounters, and belonging. I’m looking forward to really digging in over Christmas.
You can see what others are reading and knitting over at the original Yarnalong post.
What are you working on this week? Frantic holiday knitting? Relaxing “me” projects? I’d love to hear in the comments!
