Small Things for today's yarn along. I am just one row done with Phoebe's Helena sweater. I am sure I will finish it up tonight, although all of this warm weather has made me fairly unmotivated to knit! I promise that I will have finished and modeled pictures to show you next week.
I am reading Bill McKibbon's The End of Nature, which is an environmental classic written back in 1989. This is my first time reading it, and although I appreciate the writing, the book is focused on global warming and the information is (obviously) so outdated, that it is a bit hard to get through. It is interesting, however, to read his warning and predictions from long ago and to see how close to reality many of them have come.
I also just started The Shock Doctrine, a non-fiction about how governments around teh world use times of disaster and crisis to implement new economic regimes . I actually read the first 100 or so pages of this book long ago (almost 2 years?) but had to return it to the library before I finished. I am hoping this go-round will be more successful.
And, because these books are both non-fictioin (and pretty depressing) and I re-reading The Hobbit, which I haven't read for many years, to have some fantasy for when I need to escape.
What are you reading? What are you knitting?
