WIPs and Books: When life brings you lemons...

My latest project is a Little Tubular Something... in other words, I'm making it up as I go along. After a few rounds sitting on the needles for aaaages, it is suddenly growing really quickly. Amazing, as it hasn't been picked up very much. (It's Kauni yarn and you can find it here.)
I've been putting the finishing touches to the first in the new series of posts entitled "Demystifying Toe-Up Socks" which should be ready tomorrow. My new sock design is still in the 'experimental chart' phase after my initial design idea was shelved (for the moment - I can't quite let go, as I really like the idea).
So what have I been reading? Last week I talked about American Wife - I'm still enjoying it but have been tired (from walking!) and as I read in bed, it means that not much progress has been made. But I have been dipping into a few other books - part of my new 'healthy' regime includes drinking more water. I got a nice (BPA free) water bottle to carry around at all times, and have been gathering recipe ideas for different 'fruit infused' waters - perfect for this time of year when fresh fruit is abundant and inexpensive and breaks up the monotony of a few litres of plain water a day. There are a various Kindle books on the subject - many free or available via the Kindle Lending Library - and lots of websites, if you care to google it. Which of course I did. I've been enjoying all sorts (one concoction was more like Pimms than water by the time the cucumber and mint was added) but sometimes you can't beat a plain old lemon.
