Yarnalong- the one where I'm using my brain

I have just cast on for the Dreambird shawl. I've only just started, and, at this point, I'm following the pattern blindly, going "huh?' and "what?" a lot. Apparently it makes more sense once you are a bit through it. Right now I'm just knitting and hoping.



After giving up on All the Single Ladies I'm listening to more feminist literature, specifically Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist. It's thought provoking and interesting, although it's also a bit scattershot. She's given me lots of good ideas about what to read next. 

Right now though, I'm finishing Joe Abercrombe's Half a War. It's good, maybe not quite an strong as the other books in the trilogy, but it does seem to wrapping things up into a nice neat ending.

And that's what I'm reading and knitting this week. Pop over to Ginny's blog to see what she and the rest of the yarnalong are up to this week.

  1. I hold my breath when it comes to those sorts of patterns. Usually it works just fine but I struggle with not "getting it" immediately. Can't wait to see how you progress!
