On the needles this week is another part of the jacket I shared last week. That piece was the back which is now complete and this is one of the front pieces. Progress is fairly slow for many reasons, one is that I have been knitting less this week, after my constant knitting for Christmas I am slowing down a bit for a while. Another reason is that I have been reading more.
I have read a whole book in a week. If this is something you achieve regularly then you may think it odd that I am claiming this as an achievement, but I simply cannot remember the last time I read a book in a week since becoming a mother. I have started to read something very different this week. The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein is a sobering read, it is a take on the economics of disasters and her belief that many people are exploited as a result time and time again. I have read another book by this author No Logo about the rise and power of brands in our society. I really enjoyed it and hope I enjoy this one too.
What are you knitting and reading this week? Joining in with Ginny for this weeks sharing of knitting and reading.
