Yarn Along: Maggie Now...


I'm nearly done with my Riverbank Cowl...  only a few more rows until I bind off.  It ends with a few rows of ribbed knit which I am looking forward to finishing.  I never realized why my ribbed casts offs were always so wonky and my sister mentioned that you had to cast off knitting and purling as you go.  That makes a lot of sense (previously I was just knitting to cast off) and I am excited to see the finished product!

I did find a copy of Maggie Now.  It is going quickly, but I can tell that it will not be my favorite Betty Smith novel...  it's depressing.

What are you knitting and reading?

I like the cowl. I've got to start another of some sort. I like knitting them. A friend once pointed out that there were more books in the world...even in our library, than I could ever read, so don't feel guilty if I didn't want to finish one...there were plenty more waiting for me. I like mostly happily books. My SIL always would tell me about these depressing books she was reading. No thanks. I'll read fluff if I need to!! Finish yours and find a happy one for next!

Sadly, it never really picks up. A book of missed opportunities and hard lives...
