|This is one of the imperfect iterations. It looks even better now!!|
Also I've been working on designing a knitted object for the first time. I decided to make a pair of socks despite having only made two pairs of socks in my life. I just love a challenge I guess. It's been a very humbling experience. I've had to undo it entirely three times. There are just so many different things to factor in and so much math to do. Good knitting takes supreme hesitancy, for real.
In other news, Nanowrimo starts tomorrow! I've participated in National Novel Writing Month 5 years now and won each time. I almost wasn't going to participate for a sixth year, but I can't help myself. I'm going to be working on the novel I started last year, which will admittedly mostly be rewriting it from scratch. I haven't done any creative writing in probably a year actually, so I'm pretty excited/horrified. Anybody else participating?? My username is ulianne if you want to add me as a writing buddy. I love word wars.
In case you missed it, I did a post last week that I loved and I want more people to read. It's 8 interesting new & upcoming books from Minnesota presses. I PROMISE you will want to read one, if not all, of them! Check out the list here.
