Reading & Knitting ~ 1 January 2021

Happy New Year, everyone!

In addition to the larger 2021 goals I recently shared (in my 2020 review post), I have some smaller daily goals that are just habit/routine focused. These include things like drinking a certain amount of water, specific bed and waking times, and the plan to read and knit daily – so I thought I’d start sharing what I’m reading and knitting every few weeks. I hope these posts give you some ideas of books to add to your own reading list. If you’re a fiber crafter, I do still have a Ravelry account; I’m not there frequently, but I’m happy to connect with you there if you like!

That said, here’s what I’m working on this first week of January, 2021:

Current knitting projects: a pair of socks for myself, using the Churchmouse Basic Sock pattern and Black Trillium Fibre Studio’s Pebble Sock yarn, in the Iris colorway; and a sweater for my son, using the Flax Light pattern from Tin Can Knits and Knit Picks’ Stroll Tonal yarn, in the Frozen colorway.

As for reading – in print, I’m currently reading The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali for coursework for the 500-hour RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) training I’m enrolled in. On Overdrive, I’m currently reading Unplug by Suze Yalof Schwartz. Next up in that app are The Lost and Found Bookshop by Susan Wiggs and Warrior Goddess Training by HeatherAsh Amara. On Kindle, I’m reading Beyond Labels: A Doctor and a Farmer Conquer Food Confusion One Bite at a Time, by Dr. Sina McCullough and Joel Salatin.
