Joining Kat & friends again this week…
I can't even remember the last time I sat down to knit! I'm sure it's only been a few days, but seems like forever. I am still hoping to make a Sleepy Kitten for Jün before Christmas. I want to make another dress for Gin's, too, but the deadline is looser for that.
When I have had a chance to sit & knit lately, it's been for short periods and/or full of distraction, so I've been knitting mindless scrappy color-blocked near-rectangles that will eventually turn into slippers.
I did finish the Freak Flags!! Those are all the ends… very satisfying. The flags are flying at the shop but, of course, no photo.
- Population 485 / Meeting Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time - pages. The final, devastating, beautiful chapter remains to be read.
- You Don't Have to Say You Love Me - audio. I really didn't have any idea what to expect, other than I like a good memoir and it was highly rated, but I love this book so much — I especially love listening to Sherman Alexie read his own (sometimes crushing) story.
- I'm not sure, but it's Jólabókaflóð season and I'm participating in the third (I think) swap with some friends, so a new book should be arriving soon! I also had a few books on my Christmas list. I may need something to fill a few days… I suppose I could always slog through a few more pages of Hillbilly Elegy. Nah… more likely, I'll be scrapping that one altogether. I really can't stand it.
- Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. I saw this on Monday night and it's the best movie I've seen in a while… I loved it, and the casting was amazing! I can't wait to watch it again at the Best Picture Festival. Sad & surprising & funny & desperate & sweet.
