Currently…

Feeling… Hot! It’s been a warm summer and I’m getting ready for cooler temperatures! It’s supposed to rain this weekend, and I’m welcoming it with open arms.

Listening to… Back episodes of the Prairie Girls Knit and Spin podcast and the New Indie 2015 Spotify playlist. I so need to listen to music more often than I do right now.

Reading… Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation by Cokie Roberts. It’s not a bad book so far, but I’m not a huge fan of the writing style (a little too informal) or the flow (all over the place!). The subject matter interests me, so I continue reading.

Hitchhiker progress

My Hitchhiker shawl in progress.

Working on… the spinning projects from my previous post, but since it’s been hot, I haven’t done a bit of spinning in days. I did finally start the cross-stitch I mentioned on Monday, and I’m so excited to be back into cross-stitching! As for knitting, I’m still plugging away on a pair of vanilla socks, my very first Hitchhiker shawl, and my never ending Cozy Memories blanket.

Thinking about… how happy I am that I’m blogging again. I have missed it so much. Blogging may not be the same as it was when I posted a million times a month, but it’s still something I enjoy.

Craving… Sushi. Always sushi. I could eat it daily if I could.

Looking forward to… our upcoming trip to Eugene! We’ve heard so many great things about it and we’re looking forward to finding new restaurants, beers, and other things to do in town. There’s a knit shop I want to check out as well, of course. I’m also looking forward to my hair appointment next week, as I’m planning on making a drastic change to my hair! I get bored with it so easily.

Making me happy… The Wheel of Time Reread. I haven’t read WoT in probably 8 years, and I haven’t read the last 3 books in the 14 book series, so this is serving as a recap of sorts for me. I should just buy the books again and read the entire series, because I’m sure I’d read it over and over again.

  1. Yay! It’s good to see you blogging again. :)

    1. I’m so happy to be blogging again! Adding all my old archives really motivated me to write here again.

  2. I’m definitely over summer. we have had a few nice days “only” in the high 80’s and it’s been getting down to 65 or so at night and that feels so good! I know it will be hot again next week, but for now I’m pretending like it’s turning to fall ;P I didn’t exactly enjoy knitting Hitchhiker – but it is such a good scarf to wear! I wear mine a ton. I’ve been thinking about doing another one – I think it’s a great pattern for handspun.

    1. I always get to the point where I’m over summer at this time of the year! It’s cloudy out today and I’m so happy. I’m glad I don’t mind rain! The 60s is too hot for me at night, bring me 50s or below! Hitchhiker is a pretty boring knit so it’s taking me forever to finish it, but I will love it when I’m done. I didn’t think to do it in handspun! Maybe I’ll use that Moonrover yarn to make another Martina Behm pattern.

  3. I really love the colors of that shawl you are making. Very pretty.

    I think I may nab this “currently” thing for myself. Good to see you blogging again. :)

    1. Thanks! And feel free to take it, I took it from someone else so pass it along :)
