Today is the last day of my vacation. We didn't really do much -- there was nowhere to go. I didn't feel comfortable going to the movies, so we just watched some movies here at home (I Am Not Your Negro and Molly's Game) and some TV (Firefly). I made a cake, and I knit some:
I'm not quite halfway through the chart. So far so good a few problems with dropped stitches and a weird knit two together that I have no idea . It needs blocking. But at this point I'm pretty sure I will get it done for Christmas. Now I need to find a knitting while reading pattern for the other house (to knit while I'm in bed). I think I'm going to take the yarn for DJ's vest. We'll see. I DID do some untangling of my tangled skein last night. It took me about 10 minutes to find the end, but after a bit I'm about halfway done with that. I finished a book and started another. Now I'm reading Son of the Shadows by Juliet Marillier. I like the first in this series (The Sevenwaters Series), Daughter of the Forest. It was a retelling of the Seven Swans fairy tale. I like the retelling of fairy tales as fantasy novels, and this tale was one of my favorites. The retelling was ok, a strong female protagonist, but that was the original story too.
