this time, all i used were white and off white coloured yarn.
i collected thrifted scrap yarn balls and old scarves to unravel in various weights and texture.
when i first started the blanket, i only used exclusively white yarn to see how the different textures would knit together, but the colour loving person in me found it too hard to continue.
then the idea that i could add off white shades popped into my head, and the knitting went much faster.
reading: i finished doerr's all the light we cannot see and about to return it to the library. it was beautifully written and well worth the read. although i've never enjoyed reading stories about the world wars, doerr's style captivated me... especially how he wrote in the perspective of teenagers. however, i have to say, that no matter how beautifully written- the images of war were still horrific and so difficult to process.
i also finished ishiguro's remains of the day. i loved loved loved this book... and would highly recommend reading it. i was surprised how different the movie was from the structure of the book and while both were well done... the book, like always, was so much better. i thought that ishiguro's writing does a much more thorough job with the themes of dignity, loyalty and the art of bantering.
