My Almondine socks are slowly making progress with number one complete and number two taking shape. The pattern itself is easy and quick–a great introduction to following a chart and knitting a lace motif. However, I find I’m not an avid summer knitter. Summer seems to fly so fast, and this summer was especially busy with a up North cottage vacation, dear friends visiting for two weeks, a camping trip to Algonquin, and some more exciting summer events. My failure to post is due to all these fun escapades.
I have a collection of books lined up for the remainder of the summer. I received a beautiful book containing Alexandre Dumas’s Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After as a graduation gift and have recently begun the first few pages of the former, trying not to be daunted by it’s length.
I also checked out The Bride of Lammermoor from the library, as I have never officially completed a novel of Scot’s, having begun Ivanhoe a couple of years ago and never finishing it. It is by the way, still on my list of books to read.
The Last of the Mochicans has made it into my stack, as have two more recent novels, Flight of the Sparrow, and a novel of a whole different genre, The Spy who came in from the Cold. I have never read spy fiction before, but after watching The Bridge of Spies, I was intrigued and wanted to try this novel set in the Cold War.
I am looking forward to reading and finishing my socks, which I hope is soon. At least before September so I can wear them when the chill comes.
