More of the Same

Neither my knitting nor reading have changed much in the past week. I am working on the Forever ZickZack scarf. It is the perfect project for this week. I worked 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday because of parent-teacher conferences, and I have felt brain-dead ever since.
I did finally finish The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf, it's a first novel and that shows. Only a diehard Woolf fan would want to read this.
On a more positive note, I am enjoying The World Broke in Two by Bill Goldstein, which looks at Woolf, T.S. Eliot, E. M. Forster and D.H. Lawrence in 1922. It's a well-written account of these really fascinating writers.

And look who's been checking out my books:

  2. Love the kitty photo!

    Your scraf is beautiful. How I remember those long days during parent teacher conferences. Invariably, a parent would show up at 8:30 and everyone had to stay until they had made the rounds. Looong days and shorter nights.

  4. That scarf is just spectacular!!! I used to have the same issues on conference day but I have to say it was mostly my fault. I could really talk a parent's ear off back in my day.

  15. Seeing you kitty all perched on the tower of books made me anxious. :) They are so wonderful naughty!
    I am glad that you had your knitting to help you to decompress after those long hours. Your poor thing. Wishes being sent your way for a more calmer next month.
