I finally finished a couple of little shirts for the charity box – actually following the pattern this time by knitting and placing a collar.
Something I’ve avoided instead preferring to work these ‘grandad necklines’
I’ll add buttons and fix the button band when we get home – and remind myself not to knit anymore rib patterns as my stitches never came even after frogging and reknitting 😟
My reading this past week has been – The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
One of those novels I’m sure many of you have read – one I’ve said to myself ‘you should’ but never have.
Classed as a classic by the library in Bowen and that’s where I saw it (in the display I mentioned the other day).
I’m having the same ‘problem’ here as at home earlier in the year – pick a book, oh that looks interesting, two chapters – two pages in some cases, nope not for me. So I thought why not try something different- something unknown. So it came home with me.
A smallish book that had words (language, situations, ideas) I had to think about. I enjoyed it – and at the moment that’s all that matters.
I also found myself so engrossed I realised I was ‘acting out’ some of the things I was reading.
- I looked at Miss Baker…..I enjoyed looking at her.
She was a slender small breasted girl with an erect carriage which she accentuated by throwing her body back at the shoulders like a young cadet
Straightening my spine and pulling my shoulders back – not recommended if you are non slender and large breasted😊
- I glanced at ….and at Jordan who had begun to balance an invisible but absorbing object on the tip of her nose
Lifting my chin and looking down my nose wondering what I had balanced there – not recommended….makes you go cross eyed 😊
… … … … …
A book and two woolies…..that’s me finished.
Do pop over to Kat’s to see what she and other ‘unravelers’ have been up to
