Unraveled Wednesday 22.2

Unraveled Wednesday is a linkup hosted by As Kat Knits highlighting current projects, books we’re reading, and relevant yarn industry news/info/discussions.

Knitting

Well, I didn’t make it in time for the blanket drive, but it’s gotten much longer! Not that you can tell from this picture. I’ll have to find another way to donate this blanket when I finally bind off. However, I did make noticeable progress, mostly while watching lectures for school and occasionally the Olympics over the past week. I’m enjoying the simple repetition whenever I have a chance to work on it.

Reading

Live Without You by Sarah Grace Grzy – Contemporary Christian/Clean Romance

If I could be friends with the characters from just one book, I would choose one of Sarah Grace Grzy’s books. I’ve read this one a handful of times, and I have to admit that on this reading I keep noticing little things about the writing that could have been improved, but I love the story and characters so much that it makes up for this. The beginning is very emotionally charged, but the aesthetic of the book as a whole is cozy – something that I wish I could sink into. I’m greatly enjoying rereading this book.

Metaliteracy: Reinventing Information Literacy to Empower Learners

Metaliteracy by Thomas Mackey & Trudi Jacobson – Nonfiction, Library Science

This is an assigned text for my Multiple Literacies class. The professor told us up front that it would be dense and we might have to read parts of it more than once to truly understand it, but I am honestly enjoying it very much. It’s fascinating to read about how the ways that we learn and know information work together, and how to support others in understanding the information that they need to get through life and complex situations. It definitely helps that I took a class in Metaphysics as an undergrad though; much of the terminology maps from one arena to the other, and it generally made me more comfortable with the “meta” prefix than some of my classmates who have not had similar exposure.

How to Read a Book by Mortimer Adler – Nonfiction, Literacy/Library Science

Another school text that I am enjoying! Granted, I’m more enjoying the tone and sass of this book whereas with the book above it’s all about the content.

Have you ever crafted something with the intention of donating it?

Until the next chapter,

Jana

  1. Blanket knitting for charity is a commitment! I banded together with a group of Bloggers and we all knit squares that were put together and then I donated the blankets to a local homeless shelter. That was my last foray into blanket for charity knitting. But I do love to knit hats and mittens and donate them as well! There is always a need!

  2. I have crocheted several blankets now for homeless charities and care homes, plus little hats fo Age Uk and innocent smoothies, plus hats for homeless people. I started my charity knitting I think with a pair of gloves for the Salvation Army one Christmas, must be 25 years ago now. It’s very satisfying to craft for others. I have never forgotten how much it meant to me when my Dad went to a hospice in his final days and there was a hand made patchwork quilt on his bed, I really felt the love that had gone into its making, and it brought comfort, It’s not just the article that’s important for warmth but the love too.
