Knitting the Last Piece of the Sweater, Kerchief, and Reading On

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. It has been so humid and hot the past few days that it has been a struggle. My boyfriend and I are in an apartment with no air conditioning and we are finding the humidity difficult to deal with. We have a plug in air conditioner/fan that has a dehumidifier but we didn't have the cord for it to drain the water so we got one last night and we were amazed how much water it collected.

 I also had a wonderful weekend spent with my family, and my boyfriend and visiting his family.  I went to visit my boyfriend's mom for her birthday a couple of days ago, and I had a chance to read more of My Not-So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella while waiting for the subway and later on that night and yesterday. So far it is very good, and I can tell it will be a fast read for me. I love books that I feel like I can relate to the main character and she is trying to figure out her career and life so I can understand that. I am glad that I am enjoying it so far because as I mentioned in another post, she was one of my favorite authors when I was a teen so I wanted to check out this new book of hers. I have been reading Bridget Jones: Mad about the Boy and that is such a fun read too. I will be finishing these up this week I am sure. Then I will read Into the Water by Paula Hawkins who did an excellent job in her book Girl on the Train, so I have high expectations for her latest book which I am hoping is just as good if not better.

Kerchief and sweater sleeve
In knitting, I have been knitting up the second sleeve again. I had gotten stuck for a bit at increasing on the purl side without making a hole in the knitting, and looked at some YouTube videos on how to best do that. Now I am working on it again because I figured it out.  I am looking forward to being done this sleeve because then I will be finished all the knitting for my 3timesChic sweater, my very first sweater. I will be so excited to finally wear it this Winter.
I have been knitting the Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief as well, I had to frog some of it, which is why it is not that much longer since the last post. I frogged it back because I noticed the middle was not lining up right with the first sections and I realized it was because one of my stitch markers had fallen off and I put it in wrong on the opposite side one stitch over so all the work was shifted over after I did that but only realized it after about 5 rows. Oh well, it was annoying at first when I realized I had to frog all my work, but once I accepted that I have to frog it, and picked up all the stitches again it wasn't so bad. I am enjoying knitting it anyways, so it gives me more time to work on it.

I am joining along with Frontier Dreams for Crafting On and The Little Room of Rachell for Yarning Along. If you would like to share what you are working on this week you can link up too!
