Yarn Along

EDSTROM - WIN_20140909_132656

My cowl is coming along nicely, though I haven’t had a lot of time to work on it lately. Mostly I’ve been reading and writing – and enjoying both tasks even more than I usually do. I’m not reading South of Broad yet, but I’m excited to get started with it as soon as I finish my current book. I’m so excited that one would think I was unaware that this book is not one of Pat Conroy’s best – but I do know that, and I’m excited anyway. I keep trying to remind myself of the ridiculous parts: the ex-nun/Joyce-scholar/school-principal nun mother is totally implausible. There’s a married couple (or maybe just a boyfriend-girlfriend couple – I forget) named Fraser and Niles, like the brothers in the Kelsey Grammer sitcom. There’s way too much attention paid to high school football.

But I don’t care. Don’t care, don’t care, don’t care. My hands are pressed against my ears. I’m just excited to be back in Pat Conroy’s world.

Yarn Along is, as always, hosted by Ginny on her blog, Small Things.

    That yarn color is so pretty! It will make a lovely fall cowl! I have been wanting to knit a new cowl for myself…my list of projects is getting a little longer than the time I have available though 🙂

      Thank you! It comes along with a promise to myself to actually go somewhere this year that has real fall and winter weather. I’m living in a climate that doesn’t get much seasonal weather change, and I miss the dramatic colors and weather in the fall. A mini vacation is in order!
