Today I'm sharing with Ginny at her "Small Things" blog;
come join me and share what you are reading and knitting in "Yarn Along".
I have a mound of green yarn and yes, I am Irish (both of Scots-Irish, Protestant and Catholic Irish!), but I'm not preparing for St. Paddy's Day. I'm knitting for the March on Science on April 22nd, Earth Day. Green to me represents Ecology and the Environment and those who want to knit with Green and blue yarn that lends a feeling of the Earth to the march. Or some blue for the seas. I'm knitting my Ecology Hat, a Simple Slouch Hat - Free Pattern in Green.
I'm pressing for more green so we don't have a sea of blue and pink hats. Many scientists expressed on the March for Science board the desire for a new look and not to have another re-do of The Women's March with all pink hats. Many knitters are doing pink brain hats and while cute and funny, I've been trying to encourage the green so there would be a unique look, a more serious tone and it'll still look nice with the pink hats!
I'm knitting hats with other women who have offered for the students of College of The Atlantic who want to march in either Boston or Washington, DC. It's an Ecology focused college voted #1 by The Sierra Club last year as the Greenest college in the US. Message me at ElissaMcGA if you want to join us.
On the reading front, I just finished Deep Dish: A Novel Kindle Edition by Mary Kay Andrews and my main complaint is that it ended! It was so funny and I loved the two main characters, southern chefs fighting for a spot in a top national TV Food Channel. The words would fly and meanwhile they were falling in love. I want to know the rest of the story! Why do romance novels have to end at the happy ending? I think that's one reason I like Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series because their relationships go beyond the romance to tell the rest of the story, into later years. Much more compelling. But yes, this is a comedy and I'm being too serious, but, I liked it and I didn't want the characters to go away!
And I picked up again the fourth book in the Ingrid Skyberg series I started a few weeks ago, Deep Hurt (Ingrid Skyberg FBI Thrillers Book 4) Kindle Edition. The book will probably be as good as the others and the only reason I segued over to the comedy love story above is I needed some laughs with the political situation going on.
