Yarn Along


Instead of this Yarn Along photo, I probably should have taken a picture of this copy of Larry Watson’s As Good as Gone alongside today’s newspaper and sent it to the San Francisco Public Library as an assurance that this book is still alive and will soon be returned. I haven’t starved it or forced it to publicly repudiate its native land. Instead, I’ve treated it like an honored guest, letting it sleep in my own bedroom. I won’t even demand a release of prisoners in return, and a certain amount of cash will be remitted to the library along with the book. What a deal.

Anyway, I am enjoying As Good as Gone, though it’s less gritty than Watson’s other novels. More domesticated. It reads, to be honest, like an Anne Tyler novel that occasionally flashes us a glimpse of its Y chromosome. I’m enjoying it, though something very implausible just happened in the plot and I’m waiting to see how things play out before I tell you what I think. I’ll finish it soon and let you know.

Yep, it’s the Obnoxiously Orange scarf again. I worked on it last night during the VP debate, and I’m sure my needles will get a workout on Sunday for the presidential debate as well. My knitting life moves slowly lately, but that’s OK. In other areas I’m doing just fine.
