I'm joining in Ginny's Yarn Along this week.
While my knitting mojo is in full swing, I've been taking my knitting everywhere. Yup, that's me at the drive-in movie with the family knitting away (in the dark) on my Gray Day pullover.
As planned, I split for the sleeves and am now solely working on the body. Stockinette is a blessing and a curse: it's great for movie-watching and mindless knitting, but it's dreadful for when you start getting a little bored with the project. Fortunately, I'm not too bored just yet. Cascade 220 is so nice to work with, and I'm excited to see how the pullover is growing.
I've got about a third left of my book, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed, and I'm enjoying it so much. I aspire to be a hiker and love the idea of taking on a challenge like Strayed did in hiking alone on the PCT. It's a completely romantic concept, but I know it's full of dangers and difficulties which she describes with harsh reality and humility. At my age and with my limited knowledge, I think I'll stick to my nature trail walks in my local state parks ... but you never know!
