knitting and reading

As you can see, I haven't made much progress on my current knitting project.  However, I have to say that we have had some marvelous weather for being outside and playing, and walking, and gardening.  But now, with the next several days slated as rain, rain, and more rain, I expect to have some time to sit down and work on this tank top.  That is if my kids want to sit quietly and play with each other...hmmm.

The book I am reading is Firefly Island.  I started reading it several weeks ago, really only the first few pages, but promptly was interrupted by the delivery of new books in the mail - I have a short attention span. After the novelty of the new books wore off, I picked this one back up, and I was hooked right from the beginning.

Girl meets boy in insane chance encounter, they have a whirlwind romance of a couple weeks when he finds out he has gotten a job offer.  The only catch is the job is not in DC where they both live now, instead it is in Texas.  Girl and boy (and boy's son) decide to go off to Texas together.  The only problem girl is having now is that boy's new boss might be a serial killer.  Now, if I could just read more than a chapter without being interrupted, that would be lovely!  I will get through this book soon though, I'm sure.  It is a page turner!

What are you working on this week?  Any new book recommendations?

Linking up with Tami, Ginny, and Nicole


  1. my knitting has slowed down because one kid is now home. I'm okay with that!

  2. That book looks great! I'm with you - when it's actually sunny here, we NEED to take full advantage (as I sit here in the pouring rain...yet again!)

  3. Your book sounds very promising. :-)

  4. Am loving my latest read, but then I am south african so I relate to this story very much - but if you are interested the title is "The Housemaid's Daughter" by Barbara Mutch. I will be making a book review soon as I am just about done.
    Love the colour of your project :)
    Marigolds' Loft

  5. Ooh that sounds like a good book...adding it to my 'to read' list. I've just finished reading 'The Paris Wife' about Ernest Hemingway's first wife.

  6. oo your tank looks interesting :) Definitely better to be outside enjoying nice weather than knitting. The cold and rain always comes back!

  7. Your book sounds gripping. I too am feeling the pull of being outside, except I take my knitting with me!
