After months and months of neutral hues, I am loving knitting with this bright yellowy-orangeish heathered yarn that I impulse-purchased on sale last Wednesday. It’s merino wool, worsted weight, and fabulous in every way. I’m making another child-sized rollneck sweater (I never get tired of those); I finished the back in only 2-3 days after I bought the yarn, thanks to a knitting and HAMILTON SOUNDTRACK extravaganza last week with friend and PFP reader Maria and also to a lot of mellow TV watching (and one very non-mellow Republican debate) over the weekend. In the photo you can see that I’ve just cast on for the front of the sweater.
I’m reading several books as usual, but this photo features Martin Amis’ The Pregnant Widow, which comes highly recommended and is good so far.
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
