It doesn’t feel like I did a lot this week, but I did find some reading time. I also managed to fit in a little sock knitting. Now if only I didn’t feel so exhausted!

Sock knitting whilst hiding from the snow
This week went simultaneously fast and slow. It felt like the week whipped by, except when it didn’t. When I wasn’t watching the road reports due to snowfall, I was out of the house. Mostly running errands and spending time with family. When I was home, I finished one sock, started the next, and put together some graphic design work for a personal project.
There’s a part of me that is really exhausted, and another part that feels like I did absolutely nothing.
Last Week on Stringchronicity
Tuesday: Talked about how my reading habits have changed (Top Ten Tuesday)
Wednesday: I shared three of my favourite books on writing (WWBC).
Thursday: Review: The Killer Across the Table
Friday: Favourite Character Teamups (Friday Favourites)
I finished Girl Gone Viral by Alisha Rai! I’m still getting my thoughts in order so I can write my review. Not sure when I want to post it. Normally, with its release scheduled in 2020, I’d wait until a few weeks before the publishing date. However, I’m seeing reviews already popping up on Goodreads. So perhaps we’ll see it sooner rather than later.
I also finished The Killer Across the Table by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker. The review is already up, if you’d like to read it.
Last, but not least, I finished a sock. I had to check the length, rip back, and re-knit the toe a couple of times before I was happy with it. No picture until the second sock is done!
What I’m Reading, Listening to and Watching
I’m about 2/3 of the way through The Remaking by Clay McLeod Chapman, and will probably finish it by the end of the weekend. I have…mixed feelings.
Still wading through the writing book. Not surprised it’s taking a back seat to the suspenseful fiction. That’s pretty normal around here.
I’m not really a fan of Taylor Swift, but I do find Polyphonic’s perspective interesting. The last time I was really invested in the pop music scene, Whitney Houston and Madonna were topping the charts. Grunge and Industrial were on the rise, and the genres battled it out for chart dominance.
I wasn’t aware of the length of Swift’s career thus far, and some of the songs Polyphonic lists never filtered to my sphere of music. I’m genuinely impressed.
I’m not going to go out and immediately invest in a complete discography, but I’m impressed.
On the Needles
No second sock syndrome for me. I’m finished the cuff of sock #2 and working my way down to the heel.
That’s a lot of yarn, alright.
My mother has been going through her stash of yarn, and came up with 10 balls of Baycrest Worsted acrylic, a few balls of Kroy sock yarn, and a super-haul of Scheepjes sock yarn. Just look at those vintage ball bands!
The Kroy is labelled “Lady Galt Kroy”, which I’ve come across before. Never was able to pin down the actual decade, and Mum can’t remember. However, a price tag fell off one of the many balls of yarn on my sofa, and the amount is about a quarter of the price we pay today.
At any rate, it’s now residing at my house rather than hers. Which means I won’t be lacking for sock yarn anytime soon.
How did your week go? Looks like mine was filled with reading and sock knitting. Not a bad place to be, honestly. Comment down below and tell me all about it!
