Finally taking time to do another blog post and join along with Ginny and the Yarn Along. Summer has been long and busy, and so far very enjoyable.
Last week I had a vacation, which I usually don't do in the summer time. I traveled just a little bit, and got to see some dear old friends, and I'll write more about that another time.
I had ordered Go Set a Watchman, but decided that I needed to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird before I started it. I accomplished this on my vacation, and then I watched the movie again, and watched the documentary about making the movie as well. Harper Lee is my literary focus this summer. I felt a small connection when, reading her biographical background online, I discovered that she did not complete her college education - something we have in common. I've never really had any regrets about that; I discovered long ago that we must all be lifelong students, continually learning and challenging ourselves.
On the needles, I started using my free ball of Chroma from Knitpicks, making a second "Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief". I like this pattern. It really highlights the subtle color changes of Chroma. I'd like to find a US made version of this yarn. I'm really looking forward to trying some KnitCircus gradient dyed yarn very soon!
