My last couple of knitting projects have totally taken it out of me. I had to unravel my colour work sock which I had spent hours on because it was too tight (although the colour work itself, I really liked) and after spending two weeks on a project that I had to frog and knit and frog and knit only to have it come out so bad I actually threw it in the garbage can (I couldn't even salvage the yarn at that point), I decided that I needed to spend some time with a mindless project. No new skills, no paying attention, just grab a ball of yarn and go.
I finished Middlemarch on the weekend, and have moved on to "A Rose for the Crown" which is set in the midst of the York/Lancaster battle for the throne. I am only on the second chapter so far. It is also exactly what I need right now...something I can pick up and read here and there for pure entertainment.
What are you working on and reading this week?
Linking up with Ginny at small things for Yarn Along. Won't you come join us?
