While I love Lindy Chain--the linen yarn from KnitPicks--I have to admit I'm a bit tired of it and ready to go back to lovely wool yarn. Hence, I am casting on for all the things. You've already seen "Close to You" and I have also cast on for Casapinka's Woven, which is a half-linen stitch scarf.
I do love linen stitch.
I got quite a few things done yesterday, workwise, and now I have most of the 'simple' stuff crossed off and the bigger things are left. Sigh. I'd rather just knit and read all day, with a few breaks for cross stitch, and I will make such a good retired person it isn't funny.
I finished "The Woman in the Window" and yeah. It got INSANE at the end as the whole thing got tied up in sort of a 'WTF' moment. It moved pretty quickly and kept me guessing (I figured a few things out about halfway through). I just read it is being made into a movie with Amy Adams as the main character which is NOT how I saw the main character at all.
It seems like the rest of the US is a bit hot, so stay cool everyone. This is one of those weird years when the 4th of July is smack dab in the middle of the week. I don't like this at all, mostly because Pilot the dog hates fireworks and having the holiday in the middle of the week just gives more days of fireworks since people have various times off. Our city passed a law banning any fireworks that can be heard beyond 50 feet of where they are set off (except for big displays) so we'll see how that goes. I doubt it will be effective.
