It's Wednesday, and that means it's time to join Ginny in chatting about what we are knitting and reading this week. Pop over to her blog to see what she, all all the other participants are up to.
As you can see from the picture, I have new headphones! I'm really excited about them, because I spend a lot of time listening to books and podcasts. I do this while I'm knitting, but also for my required daily stretch. These headphones are Bluetooth, which means - no wires. I love them. I bought this cheap pair, but the sound quality is fine and so far I'm loving them. I was worried about how long the batteries would last, but so far they seem fine.
So, to the matter at hand. I've been knitting on my sock yarn blanket. remember my sock yarn blanket? Of course you don't. I haven't blogged about it since 2013. I was in between projects, so I pulled it out and got a few more squares done. Here's how it looks now:
I'm reading The Shepherds Life by James Redbanks. It's the life story of a sheep farmer in the Lake District. I follow him on Twitter, and the book really fleshes out what it means to be this type of farmer and to live this kind of life.
I'm listening to Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. Its a decent book, but it jumps around a lot and I'm struggling to settle into it.
