I didn’t post to Yarn Along last week because I was having major technical difficulties with my phone and getting pictures uploaded. But I was knitting and reading! I finished Body Farm (seems like ages ago right now) and read “Still Alice” by Lisa Genova. This is about a 50 year old woman who is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. It focuses on the patient more than the family and was very interesting. My mom has frontal temporal lobe dementia — so much of the story was applicable to her as well. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. My mom’s “issues” are really getting complicated now and we are trying to find a nice place for her to live. She’s not on board with this yet.
I am working on the shawlette pattern I received in my February shipment from the Mad About Tosh yarn club (Twisted Yarns). I put the baby sweater aside for a bit (although I did work on it last night) and have been focusing on the shawlette. Here’s a picture from last night:
My 100 Days of Knitting challenge didn’t make it. I ended up not knitting on Saturday for the first time since Feb 15th. My nephew ended up in the ER (he is fine now, thankfully) so I went to sit with my sister and did not bring my knitting. I thought I’d be able to do a few stitches when I got home, but I was too tired. I guess one out of 100 days to miss knitting is still pretty darn good!!
