Perhaps, Perhaps shawl is just zipping along. It's amazing how much faster you go with dk weight yarn than fingering. As you can see from all the stitch markers, I have found I need to be very careful during the lace portions.
Dark Money, which is about the billionaires funding the Far Right, like the Koch brothers, is just so depressing. I can only read a little bit at a time. I felt the same way when I was reading Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine, which I never did finish.
My next book is going to be less depressing than these two!
