While waiting, I have finished a few knitting projects. My pile of finished projects while waiting includes the shrug as well as a baby sweater. It also includes quite a few washcloths. For some reason these little portable cotton projects are perfect for me right now. I made a few for my mom and have started a small pile for the new house. I tried entrelac and the ball band pattern before settling into a rhythm with seed stitch. I am loving them right. Now and using up a bit of dishcloth cotton inherited from my great aunt.
I have also been reading quite a bit. I finished The Sandcastle Girls as well as the final Sookie Stackhouse book, Dead Ever After. I enjoyed The Sandcastle Girls as it exposed me to another piece of history I did not know about. I did a bit of research afterward to help place the story into context and learn more about the genocide of the Armenian people during and after World War I. A heavy topic, but one very well done in this book. The final Stackhouse book was okay. I read this series based on a friend's recommendation. The books are not my normal read, but I found them to be addictive brain candy. I am currently reading The Snow Child , which I am enjoying immensely. It is hauntingly sad, but also so full of hope and magic. I still have a bit of the book to finish, and I am eager to see how it ends.
So, fellow Yarn Alongers, how do you fill your time while waiting?
