Yarn Along day here on Simply Summer Street.
I finished reading Carrie Fisher’s Shockaholic.
Sort of a rambling book, but entertaining.
I always appreciated how open and honest she was regarding her struggles with mental illness.
Depression has affected my life and I am open and honest about it.
Stigma about mental illness needs to be removed.
Currently, I am about three quarters of the way through The Widow.
I am enjoying it although it is tough subject matter (child abduction and child abuse).
I have also started Wally Lamb’s I’ll Take You There.
I’ll Take You There centers on Felix, a film scholar who runs a Monday night movie club in what was once a vaudeville theater. One evening, while setting up a film in the projectionist booth, he’s confronted by the ghost of Lois Weber, a trailblazing motion picture director from Hollywood’s silent film era. Lois invites Felix to revisit—and in some cases relive—scenes from his past as they are projected onto the cinema’s big screen.
My project this week is finishing my TinCanKnits Oat Cowl.
I have wanted to make this square for a long, long time and I’m ready to start on Monday.
I am going to make this the center of a baby blanket.
Using red, white & blue DK yarn (Chicago Cubs colors), I am worried that this square is too “girly” for a boy.
Except, I really want to make this square…
I think any blanket design that is made with love is right for a boy or girl…right?
