Reading: I've counted and inexplicably, I'm currently in the middle of no less than seven books! No more new ones until at least half of these are completed.
Knitting: I'm completely on track with my mystery knit-a-long shawl. One clue to go which arrives this Friday so unless it's a big one, I should have the shawl finished next week. I've thoroughly enjoyed knitting this and I think it's going to be really spectacular. Can't wait to have it off the needles and around my neck. I'm also fairly close to finishing my Eyre shawl - I made it extra big - and when that's done, I'm concentrating on jumpers and/or cardigans for the rest of the year. Oh and maybe some mittens. Time to get ready for winter.
Daytripping: The Liverpud and I have at least one hiking day planned in the Lakes this month, but no other trips. And I will still be out and about making time for some cultural fun in the city. I have tickets to what promises to be a really interesting theatrical adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov's Master and Margarita at the Unity Theatre.
And coming this month to FACT is a movie that I can't wait to see. Le Week-End, starring Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan, has been billed as Midnight in Paris meets Before Midnight with an homage to Godard's Band of Outsiders. Yes please! Check out the trailer here.
