Over the past month I have definitely had a lot of time to knit, but I haven’t been doing it. March was such a depressing month this year, too much snow and cold, no warm days to break it up. I have all of these plans for my knitting this year, but I definitely haven’t gotten as far as I would like! In fact, I haven’t knit a stitch since I finished my cowl (which I decided to keep for myself). I’m ok with that for now!
I think that over the next week or so I am going to have to make a trip to my local yarn shop so that I can get some new inspiration. I found a great pattern for a sweater for Jack, but I don’t have any yarn for it, so that is always exciting, a reason to buy more yarn!
One thing that I have done over the past month is to read a lot. Reading is typically my go to activity if I have down time. I love to get lost in a story or to learn something new. This past week I read the Hunger Games Trilogy again. I read it a couple years ago, but honestly could not remember what had happened in the third book. I remembered the ending, but none of the details.
Also, when I read the Hunger Games the first time around, I did not like the ending. I didn’t understand where the author was going, and I had hopes for Katniss and her family that just didn’t materialize in the way I wanted. However, after watching Catching Fire, I was able to go into reading the books with a new perspective, and I enjoyed the series so much more. Now I am at a loss again as to what to read, so suggestions are welcome!
What are you working on this week?
