Ten More to Go.


The Polka Dot Wrap is progressing. I just completed the 17th (of 27) repeats. and I'm really wanting to finish it before I cast on the Colorwash Scarf ... tomorrow?!

Turns out this project is the perfect accompaniment to Lincoln in the Bardo (as both Margene and Vicki have shared, the audio is fantastic). I have 5-1/2 hours left to listen.

So that's how I'll be spending much of the rest of today - hopefully forward progress only!

So glad you decided to go for LitB and that you're enjoying it. The wrap is so elegant!

When I made my last Audible purchase I went back and forth about LitB and ended up with Harry Potter. Now I want to hear book two but you've tempted me again! :-) That wrap is lovely!

The polka Dot Scarf looks just like a cloud of love - it will be wonderful for Renie to put this on and feel your friendship and love.

After reading Vicki's post, I have Lincoln in the Bardo on hold (e-book) from my library. It hadn't really sparked anything with me, but everyone who has read it (or listened to it) has had glowing reviews. So I'm in!

Gah! my Field Guide still hasn't arrived!!! Of course, I could download the pattern from my library...just thought of that. I'm off to have a look.

The wrap is GORGEOUS. I love the color! I am reading LitB in book-form, and it is fabulous that way, too. :-)

Yet another comment on the gorgeousness of your wrap! I'm not sure the math of managing 10 more repeats before tomorrow works out, but I'm certainly not going to underestimate your knitting! I just got LitB from Overdrive at McCracken Library (with no holds!) so I'm anxious to get started on this highly-recommended book. Nick Offerman, David Sedaris and a cast of more than 100 others ... sounds interesting!

That wrap is gorgeous! I have a very strong desire, from time to time, to look at that book! I love the audio, but am going to need to hold that book at some point.
