From small things: Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?
This week I am reading The Rest of Her Life by Laura Moriarty. At first glance you think this book is going to be about a family’s fallout after a deadly car accident. And that part of the story is complex, touching and challenging, to be sure. The flashbacks to the narrator’s childhood and early married life is what is really resonating with me, however. It all works together to make a story that is rife with the complexities of parent-child relationships, parenting, and marriage. While it’s not the most cheerful book ever written, it is one that I am consistently staying up past my bedtime to read, and that’s always fun!
On the needles is a sweet little dress from Phoebe’s Sweater, a book I first learned about when Ginny made her daughter the namesake sweater. While I aim to make PB the charming hooded sweater coat at some point, making the mouse doll and dress is more my speed these days. Yarn is Imperial Yarn Columbia 2-ply from Stash.
What’s on your nightstand and needles this week?
