Work In Progress (WIP) Wednesday: In The Beginning

Howdy, and welcome to Slender Threads! I think it is very appropriate that my first post on my new blog occurs on WIP Wednesday. This blog is definitely a work in progress at the moment. Please pardon the dust. It’s highly likely that it won’t look the same next time you visit.  😉 Heck, I might even have the “About” section completed, or, at least, will properly introduce myself.

One of my main reasons for starting this blog was to be able to participate in the weekly Yarn Along over at Small Things, a blog by Ginny Sheller that I’ve come to enjoy. You should check it out. Really.

Each Wednesday, Ginny invites her readers to share our current WIPs and the books we are reading. Without further ado, I shall do that.

The Hook:

I’m slowly crocheting a full-sized, granny square afghan for my bed. I currently have 5 squares completely done (all the end bits taken care of) and another 6 squares that are just needing the ends finished. So, that’s 11 squares out of the 90 I figure I’ll need. What am I thinking??!!  At least the squares are ridiculously easy and make good TV crocheting.

The Book:

I’m currently reading Divergent again. I finally checked the out the rest of the series from the library, but discovered that it really had been too long since I’d read the first book and needed a refresher. It’s just as good as it was the first time, especially since I’ve forgotten so many of the details that it might as well be the first time.

Bonhoeffer is what the book club at my church is reading. We are meeting on 10/10 to discuss the first half. I only found out about it on Sunday and have not started it yet. I’ll let you know how it’s going next week.

The Needles:

I’m just about done with my third Bloom. I can’t show any more of it though as it’s a gift and the recipient just might be reading. I’ll post pics on a Finished Object Friday after the gift has been given. I promise.

That should about do it for this, my first, post. Do check back. I’m not sure what all this blog will be, but it’s bound to be interesting.  😉
