Yarn Along Wednesday -- Rich Boy - And On To Friday Fibers

It's Wednesday! What are you reading? What are you knitting?
Join in at Yarn Along and let us all know!

I finished Rich Boy by Sharon Pomerantz today with a sigh. What a story! The elegant writing flows so easily that I just had to keep reading long past bed time. The story is not particularly unique and the main character resembles Don Draper on TV's "Mad Men", yet the writing makes this book eminently enjoyable and readable.

I've shifted gears on my DGD's blanket request to a mindless, though boring pattern. I had set it aside in favor of a patchwork pattern, which I like but am not in the mood to knit at the moment. So, I picked up the crochet hook and the banished blanket to continue and to finish, I hope!
Are you, like me, a moody knitter?

Sadly, I have no creative talent, but my daughter is an amazing knitter. I thought Rich Boy was an excellent story as well. Thanks for stopping by today.

I'm not a moody knitter but I do have knitting ADD :) I have multiple projects going in various phases. Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I'm new at blogging so I was really tickled to read your comments. I will let you know how I like the Keith Richard's book. So far, I do like it but it's not exactly a great read. I love this one part where he writes of how he feels about music: "It was very like a drug. In fact a far bigger drug than smack. I could kick smack. I couldn't kick music. One note leads to another, and you never know quite what's going to come next, and you don't want to. It's like walking on a beautiful tightrope." I thought that was something special to read.

I'm always up for a good book recommendation. My list keeps growing. Thanks! I don't knit, but I'm finding less and less time to crochet these days and that's making me moody!

The ups and downs in your crocheted blanket made me think of those seismograph strips ... I love it!

I'm totally a moody knitter. Fortunately not a moody spinner so there is always some sort of fiber arts going on. Good thing you crochet too.
