480 Pages to Go.

...yep, I started 11/23/63 on Saturday afternoon and to say I'm obsessed would be an understatement. What a story! All that reading doesn't leave me much to share here in the way of "weekending"...except for a few knitting updates.

First, I finished the body of Lucinda - and blocked it. This photo is pre-blocking, but it doesn't look much different now. It still needs two sleeves and a neckband and a bunch of ends woven in!

I also knit two blocks for Charlie's Fly Away. (I'm not even going to let myself think about what I have to do once I finish knitting all sixteen blocks!)


And I started the Rivington Cowl, my (first?) project for Kirsten Kapur's Summer Shawl KAL. I bought this yarn way back at Stitches South 2010, intending to knit Sara something for Georgia Tech game days. Well, I actually bought the gold skein that day and had Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark custom-dye the white skein. It's a great white and gold pairing; but Sara subsequently told me she didn't want anything like that so it's been sitting in my stash since. I think it's going to be perfect for a game day cowl for ME! and I should have enough of the gold leftover to knit another small cowl.

That's about it... and that might be all you get until I finish those 480 pages!

Hope your week is off to a fine start... Happy Monday!

Loved 11/22/63 also! I think we have similar taste in books (and knitting!)
Enjoy the rest of the book and all of those beautiful projects--

Your sure knitting more than you did and reading like a fiend. You'll be finished with 480 pages in no time!

I LOVED 11/22/63. :-)
Great progress on the knitting, too, Mary.

I love when a book sucks you right in like that. I feel that way about The Art of Fielding - 512 pages in just 4 days because it's so very good!

Glad to hear that Stephen King is treating you so well! James Michener is the author of my >800 pg book and he's currently telling me in excruciating detail about dinosaurs that roamed Colorado and how the Rocky Mts. were formed. Looking forward to seeing some blue-striped Fly Away blocks!

Knitting progress-Whoo-hoo. I may have to put this Stephen King on my list-wasn't overly impressed with Dr. Sleep.

Mary -- on that Fly Away, can you not sew a little as you go?

Love the color palette: gold + white! I'm not a S King fan…but the story sounds interesting. And all those pages! Good for you…btw: done yet?
Cheers~
