This morning I finished the Lacy Baktus scarf/shawlette that I had decided to lengthen. And happily wore it to work today! The photo shows it in its first finish state, made from a skein of Colinette Jitterbug sock yarn. I then acquired a 2nd skein, so ripped back a goodly way & started over, making it quite a bit longer overall. Very pleased with the result.
Most work nights have been dedicated to reading. Just finished "No Way Down - Life and Death on K2" by Graham Bowley. True story of a deadly 2008 climbing season on the 2nd highest mountain in the Himalayas.
Also finished "The Most They Ever Had" by a fav author, Rick Bragg. True stories about the lives of people who worked in the cotton mills in Jacksonville, Alabama. It's heart-wrenching. And "Acres Away - A True History of NAS Mayport" by Joe Abb - a fascinating history that took me by surprise...about the woman who was a wealthy suffragette who moved from NY to Florida and founded a resort, only to eventually have it taken by eminent domain when the Navy wanted to expand its naval base. Anyone who loves the beaches in Jacksonville and/or enjoys local history should read this one! Next up on the Kindle - "Colonel Roosevelt" by Edmund Morris, 3rd of his 3 excellent books on Theodore.
So many projects, so little time! I've stitched a bit but have no noticeable progress to report. How are YOU doing with your projects this year?
