Current Reads and WIPs

Current WIPs and Reads | May 2022

Hello and welcome to a midmonth check-in! I just wanted to take a moment to share what I am currently reading and what I am currently working on craft wise as well. This month has already flown by, I have already finished a few books and projects that you will see in my Monthly Digest post for the month, but I am still reading and working away on other projects and books currently.

My Current Reads

Berserk Deluxe Edition Volume 1 by Kentaro Miura, Jason DeAngelis (Translator), I just started reading this so I am not too far into it , but the illustration style is great! It can be graphic though, so be warned! There is a lot going on so you just keep wanting to turn the pages and get sucked in for sure.

Other than this, I am planning on picking up The Baby is Mine by Oyinkan Braithwaite, who wrote My Sister, the Serial Killer, which I LOVED! So I am really looking forward to reading this because her thriller style is unique. Even if you know what you are picking up, she still manages to surprise you. For me, this is a HUGE plus. Even thrillers that don’t give away huge plot points I feel like I can easily predict since I read so many of them. Braithwaite on the other hand can tell you a ton about what is going to happen, but still takes me on a ride!

My Current WIPs

Body Language Cardigan by Knits N Knots, I am finally working on anther crochet project! I have not done crochet for a while, but I have missed it. I decided on this pattern because it looks nice and cozy, but also lets me practice some seaming since it is made in pieces. I am hoping to finish it before it gets too hot and I wont want to touch it and it will be ready for next fall. I am currently working on the back panel and the largest for this sweater. I feel like once I finish this panel the rest will fly!

My on the go project has been my Rainbow Vanilla Socks, no pattern followed for this. I am just knitting based off memory of knitting other socks. I am at the heel on both of the socks currently, I like to work both socks and keep them at the same sections so I finish them close together instead of getting with burn out when I have one totally complete sock an one not even started.

  1. I love the colors of those socks!! I’m currently reading Insomnia by Stephen King and The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. I just finished a book last night so I will probably be starting another book soon I just don’t know what book that will be yet.

      1. I’m enjoying it enough at this point to want to continue reading it to find out what happens but it’s one of those books where I don’t really know what the point is so I’m not going to really know how I feel until I finish it.

    1. Oh, yay that is so fun! What made you want to learn? It is always fun to hear why people started knitting or crocheting.

      The color is so fun to work with! It really keeps me motivated to see how it will continue to work up.

      1. My friends and coworkers convinced me! They all told me how good it was for anxiety and I fidget pretty badly so I wanted to translate that into better habits. But now that I’ve started I realize how much I can make and would love to start making sweaters! But a little at a time.

      2. To be fair, making a sweater is totally doable in a few months once you get the hang of it. I learned to knit in August and I made my first sweater about a month ago. If you ever run into trouble or anything feel free to reach out.
