The Longest Day

Toss Up

Perhaps, I should have had this post ready yesterday to participate in Ginny's Yarn Along. Instead, I'm tossing up a knitting post today.

In reality, I didn't have time to knit this weekend (too many outdoor things to do) and knitting hasn't been a big part of my week, so far.

I remain one clue behind on Kirsten's Mystery Shawl (now named!), Germinate. (I love the name!) If I put some effort into it, the beautiful edging could be completed this week, and effort shall be put into it...other projects shunted aside. Eye on the prize.

My reading has been varied, but as sporadic as my knitting. I've enjoyed the last few books I've read (or heard). While they weren't all 5 star books, they were enjoyable to read (ratings on the sidebar). The best of the lot was A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra, which is my favorite book of the year. Hands down.  Currently I'm reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and I can highly recommend this one, as well.


I LOVE the color combination in your mystery shawl! I haven't had much time to knit lately, and even my reading is falling victim to the Crazy Train. I'm so looking forward to reading A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, though. Can't wait. (Soon.)

I haven't knit much at all this week but its cloudy here at the beach today and there will be knitting. Thanks for the book recommendation too.

Lord, woman, how do you find time to do anything else? You're almost done with your mystery shawl and I'm still trying to start "The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb". I keep going to sleep. Good for you and it's Thursday~!~!~!

Mystery shawl looks very mysterious. :)

Knitting? I'm hoping to make a few stitches this weekend! Can't wait to see Germinate all finished.

I just finished reading "Under the Dome" by Stephen King. I wanted to read it before the show came out on TV. The book is better.
And now I'm reading "Flight Behavior" by Barbara Kingsolver. I've never read a book with so much density in every sentence. They are heavy with thoughts and ideas and visualizations.

Fantastic progress so far - I love anything Ms. TTL designs! No exception here!

Beautiful!!! Love the colors in your knitting, great pairing :) I'm reading the same book, so far so good.

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena is near the top of my TBR list (right behind Wild the next bookclub pick) - I'm glad you loved it! ...and you know I'm waiting with bated breath to see your Germinate. Hope you have more knitting time this weekend!

Your shawl is looking lovely!! I am actually knitting with suede right now too. :)
