Progress on Knitting Projects and Reading Updates

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. It has been awhile since I last posted and it has been a busy month. I got a permanent position at my contract position and we had a bridal shower for my sister last weekend. It has been a fun and exciting month. I have missed knitting and blogging but I will be back at it now. I have been working on knitting the back piece of the Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie Jean tank top and the decadent socks.

The decadent socks are coming along well. I am still currently working on the cuff of the sock and loving how the pattern is turning out. I am using Patons Kroy sock yarn in the colorway Tourmaline Stripes which give it the stripes in the sock. I love the colors of gray and navy blue. The pattern is decadent socks on Ravelry if you are interested.


For the Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie jean tank top, the back piece is still in progress. I really want to finish this piece soon to be able to sew the front piece I already knitting with this piece and hopefully have the finished tank in time for Summer.


I finished reading Commonwealth by Ann Patchett and loved this book. I enjoyed reading about the characters and their relationships and how they grow and change over the years. It is also interesting how more comes to light about the relationships between the parents as you read on. I am currently reading Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks which is a collection of short stories. It was recommended by a vlogger I follow and I decided to give it a read.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I hope you enjoy your weekend and I will have more updates to share with you soon.

    1. Thank you! Yeah I agree, once you have the stability of a permanent position I feel like you feel more stability and can then focus on other aspects of your life. Until I got the position I felt unsettled and always trying to prove myself and glad it turned out the way I had hoped! Thanks I will hopefully be finishing the project soon
