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.

    I haven’t read anything by Michael Lewis – I’ll give him a try!

    Hmmm, okay… I am going to give you a couple of books that just might end your reading doldrums! Have you read any of Tom Robb Smith’s books? The Child 44 Trilogy is very good! I also loved The Master Butcher’s Singing Club! Also, anything by Donal Ryan! Good luck!

    I hate running into a reading-slump. . . May yours end quickly! XO

  4. That sweater for some child is just wonderful. I think you are great for knitting it and giving it away!

    I hate a reading slump as well – love to hear “hits and misses” from lots of sources. Keeps the slumps fewer and farther between. That sweater is just adorable by the way.

    Great sweater! Sounds like a great stashbuster project. I look forward to seeing the finished sweater.

    I’m hoping to be able to focus on my UFOs this winter too, though I do have a few new projects in mind which I will probably start before I’ve finished everything. Still… if I can at least reduce the UFO pile I’ll consider it a win.
