The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Good morning everyone 🙂 I hope you’re all doing well. I’ve been trying to play catch up in blog land this weekend. I find that sitting at the computer all day at work, 40 hours a week, leaves me not wanting to get onto my computer at home. *note to self invest in a laptop*
On a bookish note, I have been reading and crocheting when I’m home, mostly crocheting. I am in the middle of two books at the moment, both non-fiction and both enjoyable.
Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison by Piper Kerman and Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach. I have to say Gulp is really very good, I hope to have the reviews up in a few weeks once I am finished reading. Who knew there was so much to discuss when it comes to digestion?
On the crochet front, I’ve been slightly obsessed with planned color pooling these few months. It’s tricky at first but once I got the hang of it, I was hooked. Pun intended. I can’t look at variegated yarns without wanting to color pool them now. Color pooling is a technique where you place the yarn colors in a certain way to obtain an argyle look to the piece or to get a color based design. So far I’ve made a few scarves, cowls and and am finishing up a second blanket hopefully by the end of this weekend. I used Marly Bird’s tutorial to figure out the technique when I first started. It’s great because I only use the skeins of multi-colored yarn so there’s no color changes with loose ends to weave in as I crochet. It’s all about placing the colors properly to make it look argyle.
And on another note, I saw Bon Jovi in concert in NYC a few weeks ago. Oh my gosh, they are still so good.
I went with my daughter and we had a blast. She likes the music too so it was alot of fun. Bon Jovi is one of those bands I grew up listening to and from hearing me play the music my daughter likes them too. The first part of the show was the new music, the second half he did the old stuff. He rocked it, he even jumped into the audience at one point.
Seeing them sing You Give Love a Bad Name was bucket list worthy.
That wraps up my updates for today. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend! What are you up to?
