WIPs & Books: Summer Knitting

In accordance with my Strategies for Summer Knitting, I have cast on a perfect summer project. Lightweight cotton/linen yarn, not too many stitches and very little to think about. It's something that's been a sketch in my notebook for many months so it's nice to see it finally coming together. There'll be more on that in another post. 
WIPs and books
It's been a little while since any book updates: Following recommendations on CftC Facebook page, I recently finished listening to Wool by Hugh Howey. Contrary to the title, it's nothing to do with wool - although there are a few knitting analogies. Having enjoyed it so much, I immediately downloaded the rest of the trilogy and have just finished the second book - Shift - which was also fantastic.

You can find reviews and more information about the story online, but if you've already enjoyed The Hunger Games or Divergent books, my advice would be to just read it without knowing anything about it. The small pink gadget in the photo is a pocket photo printer so you'll see why this make me laugh! 
She had this outmoded obsession with printing the pictures from her computer and stuffing them in books. Said they became more real once they were displayed like that.

I'm still listening to The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - although it's enjoyable, it seems to have been going on FOR. EVER. Only another 9 hours left!!!!!

The dog is waiting for his walk so that's it from me here, but you can read my guest post at Not So Granny where I've written my first poem - about knitting! (Please be kind if you leave a comment!)
