I have been enjoying mindless knitting this summer, possibly because I'm working to improve my sewing skills -- and that is no easy task!
I finished a Hitchhiker made from a series of very-mini skeins. I haven't blocked it yet, but it still looks fine. I like the crazy colors, but I'd hesitate before giving this as a gift!
And I immediately started a Find Your Fade. The yarn in Fresh From the Cauldron Freyr Sock (colorway: A Rose by Any Other Name).
I haven't had much time for social knitting, but I did have lunch and knitting with my friend Marsha. She is so photogenic it's hard to be her friend!
I interrupted my reading when an ebook came through on my Kindle: Fascism by Madeleine Albright, which Marsha recommended. It's a pithy history of fascism, and I'm sure it links the past to the present -- I'm just not that far yet.
Scary fact: The term "drain the swamp" comes from Italian fascist leader Benito Mussolini.
I'm linking up with Kat today for Unraveled Wednesday.
