Well, I haven’t made as much progress as I had hoped. It’s the story of my life. I thought I would get a lot more knitting time in this week but after my upsetting Easter surprise I decided I wasn’t up to much. I didn’t have much concentration left and knew I couldn’t handle any mess ups. But I’ve still managed to get at least a third of the lacy part done. I also think I managed to get an extra stitch on each side of the stitch marker but time will tell how that plays out. I am really really hopeful it’s not too messed up looking, I’m not sure I could handle having to rip back and fix it.
So when I had to set the knitting aside I picked up a book. I haven’t been reading so I could get the shawl done and needed something to do. Thanks to some encouragement from Jen I took The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows off the shelf. And devoured it. I finished it in a day and a half. And I really miss those characters! I highly recommend it.
I still need to re download Treasures from the Attic but I want to get the shawl done first. I don’t need the distraction of a good book. 😉 Because it will just distract me.
As usual, linking up with Ginny and checking out what else is being created and read. See, I get enough distraction as it is 🙂
