I finished up the headband I was knitting last time I participated in Ginny's Yarn Along. I then started a shawl. For some reason I have been loving shawls lately. I don't wear them granny style over my shoulders, but rather wrapped more like a scarf. I love that I can knit a shawl with a single skein of sock yarn. I happen to have a plethora of single skeins of sock yarn to knit. I love wool socks, but one can only wear so many pairs of wool socks in Arizona.
The shawl I knit was the Multnomah shawl. It is a free pattern with a garter stitch body and a relatively easy lace pattern. Most of my knitting was done along the drive to camp with a bit of swim team and game day knitting as well.
Unbroken. The story is amazing. War is a horrific occurrence and the atrocities experienced during such times boggle the mind. I am appalled at what people can do to one another and what one individual can endure. The story however also describes the power of the human will to survive. Louis Zamperini was an amazingly resilient individual. I would recommend this book for those interested in a bit of non-fiction. I am now reading part the most recent book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Definitely a lot lighter read, but I am hoping it helps me power through the sleeves of my newest sweater.
