14:05 WIPs
Grand Central Socks by Knitting Expat Designs in Good Karma Sox yarn using 2.25 mm (US1) needles. I do not like the holes I am getting in the heel turn but am loving the rest of the sock.

Swap Shawl in Bayview Fiber Arts: Pansy, Cleopatra in the Snow, & Rejoice. I will tell you more about it after KnitEast in October.

Sockhead Slouch Hat by Kelly McClure in the Yarns of Richard Devries Peppino in the Heather colourway. I am using 2.0 mm (US0) needles for this because my last one was really loose.

16:30 Book
The Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson. It is a really nice light read. Nothing earth shattering but a great approach to giving yourself a break on all of life’s ups and downs.

I needed this right now as it is a very busy semester, and I am rereading Stephen King’s It. The movie changed a few things and I wanted to remember exactly what had been written.
