I'm especially pleased about finishing this sock. I think I started it two years ago! It's just a boring 2x2 rib sock for a man -- the kind of thing I don't love knitting. But it feels good to be halfway through a pair. I'm determined to start the second one right away. (No ball band, but I'm pretty sure it's Opal or Trekking XXL.)
I finished Spectacle: The Astonishing Life of Ota Benga with mixed feelings. I think it's an important story, but most of his story has been lost with the passage of time. The book is padded with lots of unnecessary detail, and I found myself skimming more and more as I went along.
