The problems the group will have to deal with are cropping up more and more, the ripples of their existence is spreading, and action will have to be taken soon. Some are looking to ignore it … but how long will that work?

Reading:

Boneshaker by Cherie Priest I’m closing in on the end of this one. I happened to pick up another book from this series this weekend so I’m looking forward to reading through them and seeing what happens to a lot of the big characters in here. The world created in these stories is interesting.

Knitting:
A respite for my overworked brain! I really struggled through the double knit portion of the scarf simply because I’m used to being able to keep track of knitting while watching a tv show and chatting online and reading various blogs. This? Not a chance. I had to hyper focus on each row that had pattern. The non pattern rows were really easy though, as long as you remember to knit with one color and purl with the other. I do think the next one will go a lot easier both for simplicity of design and for practice.

That’s the second pattern I’ve had on the neck portion. The other one was ripped out after about 8 rows because I really didn’t like it. I think I somewhat worried the guy next to me at the theatre when I did that since I slipped the needles out and simply yanked all the progress out. He didn’t realize I’d put in a lifeline after finishing the logo portion so that any ripping I did would stop there. The look on is his face was rather amusing when I got to my lifeline and slid the needles back in before winding up the excess yarn.

    Yeah, I can see why this would be challenging to knit while watching tv. It looks brilliant though!
