Joining Kat and friends on Unraveled Wednesday.
Darned little knitting has gone on hereabouts. I added the i-cord bind off to the latest BSJ, but I didn’t add quite enough stitches when I turned the corner at the lower front. Corner is rounded, which is not what I was going for. But maybe I should just live with it and keep knitting.
I came across a couple of lovely skeins of sock yarn that I think I will make into a Hitchhiker. The prospect of continuing the afghan slog is just not lighting up my fun meter.
I picked up another book from my bookshelf — The Greenlanders by Jane Smiley. Smiley is one of my favorite writers, so I tend to buy her books rather than borrow them from the library. Not sure if I will finish it, though. It hasn’t really grabbed me, and it is rather a l-o-n-g book. Set in the 14th(?) century in Greenland, it tells of a family’s members’ lives and arguments and tragedies and triumphs. Not rated yet.
Oh, look! I somehow figured out how to format the book cover next to the text! Yay, me!
The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix. Seven-episode miniseries that tells the story of an orphan girl in 1950s Kentucky who learns to play chess and becomes a prodigy. A few klunker moments, but overall very well done. 4★
