Yarn Along

I finished Molly Ringwald’s When it Happens to You.

For a book that includes hard topics such as infidelity, death and gender identity, I really enjoyed it.

This weeks reads are:

  • On my Kindle, Carrie Fisher’s Shockaholic

    It’s been a roller coaster of a few years for Carrie since her Tony- and Emmy-nominated, one-woman Broadway show and New York Times bestselling book Wishful Drinking. She not only lost her beloved father, but also her once-upon-a-very-brief-time stepmother, Elizabeth Taylor. And as if all that weren’t enough, she also managed to lose over forty pounds of unwanted flesh—not by sawing off a leg (though that did cross her zapped mind) but by doing what might be termed “wishful shrinking,” all the while staying sober and sane-ish. And she wants to tell you, dear reader, all about it . . . and more.

  • In hardcover, Fiona Barton’s The Widow

    When the police started asking questions, Jean Taylor turned into a different woman. One who enabled her and her husband to carry on, when more bad things began to happen…

    But that woman’s husband died last week. And Jean doesn’t have to be her anymore.

    There’s a lot Jean hasn’t said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment.

    Now there’s no reason to stay quiet. There are people who want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with that man. She can tell them that there were secrets. There always are in a marriage.

    The truth—that’s all anyone wants. But the one lesson Jean has learned in the last few years is that she can make people believe anything…

  • Still reading Kathy Griffin’s Celebrity Run-Ins (this one I’m reading here and there).


My projects this week are finishing a Corner to Corner baby blanket for a co-worker.

I started this long ago and am determined to mail it this weekend.

I’m using KnitPicks Brava Sport and a 5mm Furls hook.

I am also working on Tin Can Knits Oats Cowl (knit) for myself.

Using Quince & Co. Osprey in Frost and 5mm circulars.

I prefer to not have things tight around my neck, so I cast on the longer version.

This will need a good blocking and I’m excited to see it when its all done!  (it is so squished on the needles, I can’t get a true picture in my head of what it will look like)

Have a good week reading & crafting!
