Eating wasn't the only thing I did over the weekend. There was a fair amount of knitting and reading, although not as much as I'd have like. While I met my goal of reading 80 books this year, I have made little progress on my current choice. It's not for lack of desire, it's lack of time to sit and hold the book in my hands.
The Luminaries is nearly 850 pages, which is going to take some time. I've become enrapt in the story and hope to be finished by months end. Many of the books I read I listening to, which I can do while accomplishing other tasks. Recently I listened to Chris Hadfield narrate his book, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth. If you've not heard of Chris Hadfield you really should watch the video of his performance of David Bowie's Space Oddity. It's worth your time.
I'm making good progress on Acorn Trail and have just decreased for the armscye. The back will soon be completed and blocked. It's best to check and make sure I'm on the right track. Hopefully, I'll be able to put in more time and complete this sweater before winter is gone. The discontinued Rowan yarn is a deep tweedy red. I find red the hardest of all colors to photograph well and the dark and stormy night did not help matters. So, what are you knitting and reading?
