Progress of Several Varieites.
So one of my WIPs this week is making a different kind of progress right now, as it's progressing through the mail to Sharon of witchyknits! But here's a nebulous preview.
It's interesting that while currently-Rusty and Tiffany are the same basic number of stitches and are both worked in Loops and Threads Impeccable ombres, the colour pooling is completely different. Tiffany ended up with more blots and flecks of colour, where Rusty is coming out much more evenly striped. ...It's a good thing I wasn't at all invested in these things being symmetrical, I guess!
Each Little Bird That Sings. I've been devouring Ms. Wiles' (wonderful, quirky, emotionally true) novels slowly since I read Countdown, which was a really innovative and sharp piece of historical fiction set during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and features both amazing graphic-art interludes and a great POV character and tone that sometimes reminded me of To Kill a Mockingbird or Mary Downing Hahn's Stepping on the Cracks, a book otherwise known as "the source of most of my knowledge re: life on the home front during World War II."
But enough book reviewing. Go see what everyone else is up to over at WIP Wednesday!
