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? ~ Ginny from Small Things
I have finally finished reading A Holiday Yarn: A Seaside Knitters Mystery by Sally Goldenbaum. It was a refreshing read with just the right amount of mystery. I’m now reading The Sign by Raymond Khoury, a book that my father-n-law recommended. I am having trouble putting this book down and have to say the first chapter really captured my attention.
Set against a backdrop of ancient and modern religious conflict, this solid thriller from bestseller Khoury (The Last Templar) explores a number of current planetary preoccupations, from far-right political demagoguery to global warming. While in Antarctica covering the breakup of the continent’s ice shelf, TV reporter Grace Logan and her crew are astounded to see a bright, shimmering sphere of light in the sky. They film this astronomical anomaly as it runs through a variety of tricks, then disappears. People around the globe wonder: is it a UFO? a sign from God? or some sort of techno trick fashioned by perpetrators unknown? After the blazing sign reappears over the Arctic, a possible link emerges to an old Catholic priest, who has heard on a desolate mountain in Egypt a portentous voice in his head (Are you ready to lead your people to salvation?). Unrelenting action and a suitably twisted ending compensate for the clichéd prose. ~ Publisher’s Weekly
I have joined Andi’s (My Sister’s Knitter) group over on Ravelry to help me with my current WIPS and I hope to finish two projects this month, my Posies Shawl and my Simple Sideways Scarf. After these two projects are finished, I plan to work on my On Stranger Tides socks and Kernel scarf.
Here’s two new progress photos to share:
So what are you currently reading or listening too?
Any fun projects on the needles, hooks, wheel or loom?
