Sunday catchup

We are having a relatively quiet weekend here--Tim is working hard on his class stuff and I'm working hard on--what? I did a bit of work yesterday and am reading a good book called "Rain Dogs" by Adrian McKinty--it is a police procedural (I guess part of a series) set in Northern Ireland in the 1980s. It is quite good---usually about 3/4 of the way through I zip to the end to see who did it but this one I'm still interested in and reading every word with about a fifth of the book left.

I gave up on 'Three Martini Lunch" which is a book about the publishing world in the 1950s--just not that interesting.

I've been working on the Geology Shawl:

This is actually upside down but you can see how there are a few distinct section/textures (maybe? The yarn is kind of busy. I still like it though).

Here's a close up:
You can see kind of see two different designs--a lacey on the top and then a more geometric one on the bottom.

We watched "The Danish Girl" last night and it was a beautifully filmed movie--interesting subject and acting (although I think it went on a bit long). The scenery was gorgeous (and the sets were gorgeous as well).

Enjoy Sunday!

As always, your ability to match yarn with pattern is remarkable. Those colors are beautiful.
