It has been too hot and too muggy to do much of anything lately. Very little knitting, spinning, or stitching has happened in the last week. But, I finally knit the few easy peasy stockinette rows after separating the sleeves from the body and with trepidation I finally tried it on. And it fits! Hallelujah, hallelujah! Now if I can survive the oncoming onslaught of short rows I will hopefully have a wearable garment :D I feel like half the battle is won.
One thing that it has not been too hot for is reading! This week, for Ginny's Yarn Along, I am currently reading Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. This book is amazing. Simply amazing. It is YA, as I am a self confessed YA junkie, but please do not let that scare you away...this book is gripping in its storytelling and features a strong female protagonist. It is a fresh twist on the age old battle between angels and demons with such very unique twists. It also takes place in a part of the world that doesn't really appear much in YA, or any American, fiction. From the streets of Prague to Paris, adventure happens on every page. I am almost done with it and cannot wait to start the sequel.
