So, because my blog is supposed to be about my crafts and reading list as well as my random thoughts, I thought it'd be fun to start the new year with regular updates on what I'm up to in those areas.

This month, I'm reading The New Kings of Nonfiction. Those who follow my Instagram account know I've been working on this book for far too long. I thought it'd be a perfect match for me, being journalists telling nonfiction, short stories, but I'm not feeling it as much as I thought I would. I don't know what's up with that, but it is giving me inspiration for some writing I've been trying out lately so it's not a complete waste.

And as far as crafts, I recently finished this hooded scarf for a very special co-worker. She asked me to teach her to crochet a while back and a hooded scarf was her first project of choice. But because of life circumstances, she hasn't been able to work with it like she'd like. Anyway, this isn't the pattern she picked, I didn't want to take that from her, but I thought this one was pretty as well.

That's about it. I'm thinking of starting a handbag, which I've been trying to make since I started knitting and crocheting, but I haven't decided if that will be the next project.

For more book recommendations, check out my Recommended Reading page which also contains a link to full reviews of some of the books.

Until next time.
