Knitting & reading




Knitting: 
still working on the sweater, didn't make a lot of progress yesterday. I am thinking about knitting a lot though. I miss knitting hats and think I'd like to challenge myself to knit 20 before 2020 (next week there are 20 weeks left in the year). I probably won't make it, but it's fun to try.

Reading: 
finished the book I told you about last week and moved on to another book by Maria Schneider. I love this one too. Under Witch Moon is a paranormal mystery. The main character is a witch, there are were wolfs, vampires and shapeshifters and a few murders that need to be solved. Good fun. I also like that the magic is thought through really well. Not the cliche 'everything is possible with magic' way to make the impossible happen and solve the problems in the story, but digging deeper in how spells could work and what is needed to use a magical talent.

Linking up with Kat's Unraveled Wednesday

  3. That is some hat challenge. The sweater looks so soft and snuggly. Such a pretty gray. Your book sounds interesting too.

    1. I probably won't be able to finish the challenge. Last year I was a few hats short of 52. But it's fun to try. The book is great. I have trouble putting it down (but then I wouldn't get any knitting done).

    1. Coordinating colors... And somehow that cover fits the gray. I noticed that too when I took the picture.
