In for the Long Haul

 I seem to be picking up long-term projects both in knitting and reading. Maybe it's the frigid temperatures that have settled over the Upper Midwest. We are looking at high's in the single digits this week.
Both the biography of Virginia Woolf by Hermoine Lee and the Modern Jewish History by Howard Sachar are incredibly well-written. I've been skipping around the biography and reading out of order. However, when it comes to history I'm a huge believer in chronological order. There are history books that go by topic, not timeline, and they drive me insane.
I try to knit a few rows each day on the ZickZack scarf, but I am more focused on the Windchill Cardigan, which I'm knitting for my daughter. I got quite a bit of the body knit yesterday while we watched the movie Woman in Gold. Cardigans don't look like much at this point!

And I'll leave you with a photo that shows how obsessed Kola is with food. We are worried we'll accidentally trap her in the refrigerator.

Joining up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday.

  4. The knitting looks fantastic. I'm with Nancy, that cardigan color is really beautiful, very wearable! I love your onsite food inspector. Very cute.

  5. I closed Daughter's cat in the fridge once when I was kitty sitting. I had no idea the little bugger would crawl up into it. Luckily I was in and out of it so her chilly stay was short but it sure shook me up.

  7. Chilled kitty is NOT something I'd want to find in the fridge, that's for sure!

  10. You're definitely making progress on the cardigan. That's a lot of stockinette! Love the photo of Kola. Our dog used to do the same thing. He was way too big to get trapped in the fridge but we did have to be careful - he would steal food out of it as soon as we opened the door.

  11. I love how the Zig Zack scarf is looking! the colors are amazing. The cardigan is really coming along too. Hope you enjoy your reading as well, I have so much to read now after getting lots of books for Christmas. But I still have some reading to finish off from before.

  12. Cats are so funny. Tyg did the same thing as a kitten and Colin's cat Talbot used to climb in too. Your scarf is so fun and the blue for the cardigan is gorgeous.

  13. Love the zick zack, I remember mine taking along time but it was worth it in the end. I need to cast on another, this one for me. Love the cardigan pattern. Enjoy your week off.
