It’s a busy week for me, but I thought I’d take a minute and share my current reading project and my new knitting project. I’m listening to the audiobook versions of Susan Cooper’s The Dark is Rising Sequence. I really enjoyed Over Sea, Under Stone last week, and when I finished it I immediately started on the next book, The Dark is Rising. It’s quite different from Over Sea, Under Stone … much darker and with only one of the characters from that book … but I enjoyed it very much. As I mentioned in a previous post, I listen to audiobooks whenever I’m in the car, no matter how short the ride, so my neighbors may have been wondering why I’m just sitting in the car in the driveway, instead of getting out and carrying the groceries into the house. They can’t see that I’m waiting for a chapter to end, or for a particularly good part of the adventure to come to a natural break.
I also listen to audiobooks while I knit (if the pattern isn’t too complicated). So here’s my new project, which I may have to call my “Dark is Rising Scarf.” I’ve been on a scarf-knitting binge since the first of the year, and have enjoyed knitting four different scarves for family and friends. This new one is for me! I love the color, love the feel of the yarn (Berroco “Bonsai”), and love knitting on it while listening to such a good story!
