Yarn Along

Yarn Along 9.30.15

I pieced the colorblock rollneck sweater this weekend, and now all I need to do is knit the neck. This photo doesn’t really do the colors justice, but I’ll take some outdoor photos once the sweater is finished.

I’m reading Everything I Never Told You, which is a prime example of the genre I like to call the airplane novel. Airplane novels are 300 pages long, give or take a few – long enough to read on a mid-length flight without being long-winded or tiring. They concern a few key characters and explore those characters’ inner and outer lives in detail, but we’re not expected to keep track of extensive backstory. You can read these books when you’re tired. I will explore this subgenre in more detail sometime soon.

    Your sweater is gorgeous! I love the colors and I like the soft way you knit. I agree about airplane books.

    Fun sweater! How are you liking the novel? I was hoping to get to it this summer but it didn’t happen. It never really caught my interest until the paperback came out — the new cover art is a lot more eye-catching!

      Yes, I do like the novel so far. There’s a lot of backstory at the beginning, and it’s oriented around the secrets family members keep from one another. It’s a light, quick read but very engrossing.
