“Friction” and Shark Socks

IMG_9824

I finished the latest (at least I think it is) Sandra Brown book “Friction” over the long weekend.  It was a good read (a little romance, a little mystery) with enough twists to keep my interest.  I generally enjoy her books and this was no exception.

My shark socks are continuing along but are at least looking a bit more like sharks.  It’s a bit hard to tell in the photo but they seem to be coming together.  Slightly larger needles (2.75 mm) than I normally knit socks with are making them go quicker than usual. I expect they will mostly be worn as slippers without the heavy daily wear of socks so I’m not as concerned with the looser fabric. I generally like my socks knit with a consistency just short of kevlar. 🙂

Looking for a “Silver Lining”

Maybe it’s that the mornings and evenings are starting to be cooler and I’m not ready for summer to be over.  Maybe it’s chasing a three month old puppy is harder at 40-something than it was at 30-something.  Maybe it’s just Wednesday.

Whatever “it” is, I’m feeling “meh” about my knitting and reading this week.  I just finished “Silver Linings” by Debbie Macomber.  I normally love her books but I felt this one was just ok.  (I also have a theory that you like different authors depending on your mood, and maybe my mood just wasn’t right).  I’m working on a pair of shark socks. They’re going ok (I think they’ll make more sense once I join the two pieces.)  The pattern is good, I’m just not quite feeling it.

I’m wondering if anyone else is in a “meh” phase?
