Unraveled Wednesday, 9/8/21.

Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday.


I swear these are the last blue hats I am going to knit this month. Really. Fer sure.



The Kill Artist by Daniel Silva. I actually read this in 2016, but someone mentioned that this is the first book in a series. Of course, now I want to read the entire series. Plot in this one is that the main character is a retired killer for hire who used to work for Israel intelligence service. The writing seems…dated. I will give book #2 a chance; if the writing is still dated, I may give up. So many books, so little time… 3✭







Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad. The local chapter of the League of Women Voters organized and is sponsoring a virtual book club based on this book. Last night was the first Zoom meeting; 17 attendees. We will meet monthly, and I am sooo looking forward to those opportunities to dig in and do the work. One thing we all agreed to was that where we live — rural northwest Wisconsin — is drowning in its whiteness. 5✭






Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson. I am a bit more optimistic about this audiobook than I was when I last posted about it. There was an intriguing plot twist last time I listened (remember, I only listen when I am in the car alone) which makes me wonder how this will all be resolved. 3✭





Downton Abbey. We bought the boxed set. Looking forward to the next 50+ evenings! Although it now occurs to me that the new networks’ seasons will begin this month, so there will be some weeknights to watch NCIS and The Closer and NCIS: LA.

    Your entire community must be wearing blue hats by now???? 🙂

    Enjoy Downton Abbey! My daughter and son-in-law watched it all and really enjoyed it. (Though they watched it in real time, back when you had to wait for episodes to come out…)

    Phil has remarked that he LOVES your blue toques! If you have Netflix and wish to watch an inspiring movie, it is “Peanut Butter falcon.” I loved the series Lupin! It was very complex and the mind of the fellow hero in the series, his mind played muti-dimensional chess in order to arrange things so he could get done what he needed to do. Fascinating!

    The Allon series gets more up-to-date as you ease into them. And I find it somehow ironic (perhaps that is not the best word to use here) how things don’t change much on the diplomatic front – at times the issues could be today!

    Another pretty blue hat. Knit what makes you happy.

  6. Agreed. If knitting blue hats makes you happy, then knit blue hats. Or maybe add a red stripe just to mix it up. 😉

    Dated writing is difficult, I find. If it’s a dated style I’m a lot more accepting of it than if it’s dated slang. Or overly bigoted… even in “accurate for its time” situations I find it really hard to read that kind of dated writing.
