I finished BOMBSHELL while put in some more work on Fox Face Mitten #2! (This is the palm, which I don‘t think I‘ve shown y‘all before.) I had a great time with this story of early Victorian society women who‘ve teamed up to see justice done in situations where the law is disinclined to act. #audioknitting #NewYearWhoDis

monalyisha I love that burnt orange color! 2d
xicanti @monalyisha I was so happy to find this yarn at the thrift store! It‘s the perfect colour for fox mittens. 2d

A Memory of Light | Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson
post image

I crept a bit further into A MEMORY OF LIGHT while I worked on the cuff for Fox Mitten #2. I‘ve still got over half the book left, but it feels weird to think of how close I am to the end of this reread. It‘s been a journey for sure.

It‘s also been really interesting to listen to the books this time around. Jordan‘s got a lot of names that LOOK different but SOUND really similar, with Domani and damane being the most glaring. #audioknitting

Towers of Midnight | Robert Jordan
post image

I finished my TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT reread yesterday while I completed the hand part of Fox Mitten #1 and started on the thumb. This book packed in the excitement, y‘all, and when I first read it in 2015 it gave me some scenes I‘d waited nineteen long years for. It‘ll always hold a special place in my heart for that. #audioknitting

xicanti Okay, so, 12-year-old me read the first six volumes and said, “OBVIOUSLY Mat‘s gonna lose an eye and OBVIOUSLY Moraine isn‘t really dead.” 31-year-old me felt way too smug when both those things came to pass in TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT. (31-year-old me was also deeply unimpressed with 12-year-old me for failing to see all the ways Mat corresponds to Odin.) 2w
AmyG That is fabulous! 2w
LA_Mead Wow! That is so cool! 2w

My husband bought me a knitting machine for Christmas, so I've been having fun playing around with it. My first couple hats were pretty rough, but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.
I had a blast listening to the tagged audiobook (it's so funny!) while cranking out these hats tonight #audioknitting

Cathythoughts Nice hats ! Nice present ❤️ 2w
ozma.of.oz Love the colors! ❤️ 2w

I finished the last of my presents this morning, so I can finally get back to making stuff for myself! I hunkered down with my audiobook and my first fox face mitten this afternoon. The second one‘ll be knit in reverse so the full face appears when I put my hands together. #audioknitting

xicanti If you want your own pair of fox mittens, I got the pattern from 1mo
CampbellTaraL Oh wow, wonderful work! I love that orange color. 1mo
CampbellTaraL Or maybe it's red? 😬 Phone is making me doubt myself. 1mo

xicanti @CampbellTaraL no, it‘s orange! It took me ages to find exactly the right orange yarn at the right weight. 1mo
CampbellTaraL @xicanti Well worth the effort, it's gorgeous! 1mo
xicanti @CampbellTaraL it‘s so soft, too! I thrifted it without its original wrapper, but I suspect there‘s some bamboo in it. 1mo

The Flatshare: A Novel | Beth O'Leary

Took me a while to get into this one. But my Libby loan was about to expire so I had to up my game. Have to admit the constant back and forth between narrators was a little hard to get used to. Overall, it was a fun romance and entertaining while I finished knitting my mittens.


LeahBergen They‘re wonderful! 2mo
SayersLover Thanks, I‘m making them for my sister for Christmas, so it‘s nice to have them all done 😊@LeahBergen 2mo

Some #audioknitting. This pair of socks needs to be finished by the end of the month for a Secret Santa parcel.

For those interested, I'm trying an after-thought heel and am looking at a chart for a "Kelim style" sock, because that's easier than doing the decrease-maths myself. ?

Andrew65 Looks complex. 2mo
rabbitprincess Gorgeous yarn! 2mo
ravenlee I should have read before staring at the picture trying to figure it out - are you doing 2-at-a-time socks? Nope, read the caption! Looks good, now that I know what I‘m looking at! 😆 2mo
