This is a stashbuster child’s sweater I have been working on for the warm clothing drive. Since I took that photo I have finished it, but you will have to wait until next week to see the FO, since I finished it after dark Tuesday night. Nighttime photos are not acceptable.
Whilst working on this sweater I have been pondering what to knit next. The idea of knitting more stashbuster children’s sweater tempted me for awhile, but reality eventually took over. My next goal is to finish the miscellaneous UFOs littering the house. First up is the Carbeth I set aside last spring. It shouldn’t take more than a week or two to finish, and then I will have a new sweater! While the majority of winter remains! Triumph!
On the reading front, I have been disappointed lately. Lethal White, detailed last week, disappointed in the end. While I was waiting for my requested books from the library I read The Fifth Seed, a kinda sci-fi thriller, on my iPad; didn’t bother to finish because it was stupid and implausible. Then I remembered I had one library book that I hadn’t read, but Every Dead Thing, a murder mystery by John Connolly, did not enthrall me. I may or may not finish it. The Belinda Bauer mystery from the library turned out to be one I had already read.
However, The Fifth Risk by Michael Lewis was definitely not a disappointment. I think I could read anything by Lewis. The Big Short was probably his most popular book and was made into a movie; I read that. Also read Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt. I worked in the financial services industry for ten years, so anything having to do with dirty deeds on Wall Street or the financial markets in general is fascinating to me.
