~Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me each month and share what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Post your photo(s) on your blog or on Instagram (#yarnalong) and then share a link below to either your blog or Instagram post!~ (this post contains affiliate links.)
I finished the body on my South Bay Sweater and I really love it. Then I tried picking up stitches for the neckband and that didn’t go so well. Jonny told me several times that it’s not going to be perfect. I corrected him. For now, I’ve abandoned the neck and I’m knitting the sleeves. I will revisit the neckband once they are finished.
I finished reading China Court, and loved how it ended. Now I’m reading Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. From a young age, I felt that the fact that I find it draining to be in large groups, along with my inability to make small talk (that isn’t awkward and embarrassing) was the result of some sort of a deficit, something that needed fixing. I longed to be the chatty, clever girl. Over the years I have learned to accept myself for who I am, and I recognize that I am not defective. I am just an introvert, and that’s alright. This book is both encouraging and validating.
