After setting aside the afghans and finishing the hats, I had nothing OTN that I wanted to pursue. But we had to drive into Minneapolis on Monday, so I realized that I needed a small portable project for the drive. This was right after I had read my “to do in 2020” list; one of the things on it was to knit 10 blue hats for the Blue Hat Project. Hurrah! I forgot about that intention during 2020, but I can jump on it now.
Behold, Hat The First.
These Women by Ivy Pochoda. This is a sort-of mystery, sort-of police procedural, but what it really is is a novel about women who are on the edge of the sex trade — prostitutes, dancers, teenagers who haven’t made the actual plunge into that world. The Goodreads summary describes them well. What it doesn’t emphasize is the excellent language and descriptions the authors uses. 4★
I finished Tiny Pretty Things. It was decent watching, although I had to put down my knitting whenever there was dancing. Since dancing was the reason I started watching it.
