These days, it goes mostly to reading this:
My mom read it and liked it, so I decided to give it a go too. She found it interesting, having been a young woman at the time. I like it too; it's a good time-travel story. But the reason I'm spending so much time reading it is that it's a loooonngggg book: 849 pages! And the Chicago Public Library only loans for 3 weeks. I have a feeling I won't be able to renew it, since it's a new book, so I want to make sure to finish it on time. Sadly, I'm a pretty slow reader.
The rest of my time has been going into finishing The Sweater, and I'm almost there. Those two collars took forever to knit, and I was further slowed down by having to sew them on as I went in order to determine the length needed. But I've finally gotten past that and am at the point of the final seaming:
Who ever thought sewing together would be a relief?!
I've also been trying to deal with a First World Problem (thank you to Hubby for introducing me to that!). Our AC gave up the ghost and looks like it will need to be replaced. Not usually a big deal, except that our condenser is on the ROOF of our 4-story building, accessible only by ladder as far as we know. What a brilliant builder, right? So we've had no AC in this heatwave and I haven't been able to find anyone to sell us a new one. Thus actual knitting and sewing have come to a screeching halt, and I find myself only able to handle the sweater for seaming for very short amounts of time.
But I have nail polish to play with! Here's a new one, from the OPI Holland Collection, called A Roll in the Hague:
A pretty, hot red-orange. Sadly, the formula was one of the worst I've experienced - ever. Very patchy, and application was made even more difficult because I bought the set of minis. I thought I was doing myself a favor, because I'm not a fan of the OPI brush. But the mini brush was terrible! Live and learn!
