Today, whilst watching the US election result unfold on ABC24, I started knitting my first ever attempt at a garment. Up to now I have only knitted blanket squares or dishcloths. Already it has been unravelled and restarted twice, but now I have come to peace with it and indeed have forged an understanding between myself, the yarn and the sticks that it’s a-o-kay for the resulting garment to be wonky and imperfect. Since this acceptance progress has been more merry.
Later tonight I’ll be starting Water For Elephants. I am reading this text as part of book club. I’m not familiar with the author or what to expect from the story. I’ve not seen the film. I always enjoy starting a text that I know nothing about. I have no expectations or ideas. I prefer to read the book before seeing the film too. I will watch the film once I finished the novel – it is always interesting to see how another has imagined the text. Don’t you think?
