Something Else Sunday #8


I seem to have a trend of these being late now. Oops. Also, I only got ONE review posted last week! But you know, life happens. This weekend though, I did get TWO books finished!

Here’s Sir Tristan being cute as can be while I start on my new BIG project. The claws are not actually hooked into my leg, just lightly into my jeans. Haha.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I did a lot of making on little stuff this week. Blanket squares, test skeins. However, I also managed to finish the first re-knit sleeve for my Vivian.

Also finished the first skein – a mini one, to test out the ply, etc. – on my BIG project.

This is eventually going to become a Thoth shawl.

Which has this awesome phases of the moon design.

I also decided on a whim to try to pick up my crochet hook for the first time in about 6 or 7 years. And I’m feeling the beginnings of a relapse. I can’t stop looking at crocheted blankets on Revelry.

Then there was a tiny little bookmark for a friend, in a lovely autumnal orange. I’ve been wanting to use that word all week. Autumnal. It looks so lovely written down but it’s such a bitch to say, my tongue always trips over it.

Hmm. So maybe all that explains why I didn’t get but one review written! Haha. However, I went on a slight – just a slight – Terry Pratchett binge and finished two books in as many days. One of my goals for this year was to read through the ones sitting on my shelf that I’ve never got to, so this was actual progress (covers link to GoodReads).

Next up is a re-read of Sourcery, and then on to the next one I haven’t read, Wyrd Sisters. In the meantime, I’m reading the 4th in Rhys Bowen’s Her Royal Spyness series, Royal Blood. Which is amusing so far…I’m hoping it doesn’t delve into the supernatural, but stays in the scientific and rational side of things like they’ve done so far. This one is set in Transylvania, so we’ll see.

I can’t wait to see what everyone is reading this week! Off to poke through my Bloglovin’ feed. 😀 Have a great week!
