I'm using the hot days of summer as an excuse to sit inside, watching the Olympics, reading and knitting without feeling bad about not being outside too much. I left myself 4 days to read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, which was my book club's pick for this month. Just as my friends had told me, it's an edge of your seat psychological thriller. I'm glad I waited so long to read it, just so that I don't have to wait long to talk about how crazy the plot twists were with my girlfriends. Quick read, entertaining, suspenseful, and I'm still not sure if I like many of the characters. That may be a good thing though!
I've had 5 skeins of this lofty, beautiful butter yellow Twinkle Soft Chunky yarn in my stash for a couple of years. It was gifted to me, and I'm using it to make Wenlan Chia's Lacy Chunky Throw. It's knit on huge needles and goes a long way, but I'm thinking that I may need to buy 2 additional skeins to get it to the right size. My yarn budget may call for some heavy blocking instead! Isn't it pretty though? Yellow has become my own personal color of the year.
See what I mean? I can't get enough of it. I can't help myself from hoping fluorescents stay as long as possible! Fingers crossed...
