WIP Wednesday: Think Spring

Knitting:
The Piano Scarf is still in the works. It doesn’t look much different from last week, other than being longer. I’m over halfway done with repeat 5 of 6 so it should be done fairly soon. So instead of showing pictures of that again I’ll share my current traveling socks.

These are the socks that are worked on in the car or in line. I’ve about an inch left before I begin the toe. I tried them on last night and I’m thrilled to report that they fit me. *grin* I probably wouldn’t have started these now but when I finished my last travel project I pointed Lynn at the stash and said pick my next project. He sifted through things a bit and came up with one of the skeins of Paton’s Grace. The other skein is sitting in my purse waiting to be called for the second sock.

Reading:

Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. I’m not sure how I feel about this one. I knew going into it that I probably wouldn’t agree with parts of it but it’s been sitting on the shelf for a few years now. Lynn and I collect various religious books, though generally not of this type. While cleaning out our shelves I decided to finally read the first book of the collection, particularly since we’ve managed to collect the first 6 or so of this series, all through free boxes of books. I don’t know if reading this will change my religious views .. but at least it’s readable and I’m not feeling beat about the head and shoulders with religious ideology as I have in a couple other books.

    The sock looks great! I love having a sock with me to get me through commuting and waiting rooms. I hope the second sock is as quick a knit as the first.

    I am soooooooo going to learn to knit socks this winter! You do so inspire me to learn new ways!! About the Left Behind series, I have read them all and now a friend is borrowing and reading them. To me, (I am not an overly religious person) this is a very interesting concept of the Rapture. I will say that after finishing the series it made me think a lot about my life and ways I could improve my thoughts, actions and deeds. But one must remember this is fiction, not necessarily the way this could happen. But it is very interesting following the characters and what they go through.

    Thank you! I think they're going to be fun and different from the dark colors I usually wear. 🙂

    I used to carry a book with me all the time but I always had to stop reading to interact with other people. It's so much easier to carry on knitting while chatting.

    I was really thrilled that it fit. I'm used to having to restart at least once to get the right size.

    Aw! Thank you!I hesitate to say I enjoyed Left Behind, given the subject matter. But it was a good read and it did give me quite a bit to think on. I have several more in the series and I may very well read them as well, but I suspect that if I do it will be with various other books scattered between them.
