Sunday Post (158) / Stacking the Shelves (138)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Hello, Jackie here,

This week has been an okayish week. Some days just feels meh though. I think that’s why I picked up knitting again. I stopped knitting for about 2 years because it made my wrist hurt, but recently I’ve been in the mood to knit again and I think half of it has to do with the fact is experiencing the snowy and super cold climate in Japan made me miss it. I really love scarves and hats but SoCal is just sometimes too warm to wear any of those things.

  1. I wish I knew how to knit! My Grandma tried to teach me once but it didn’t really work! I hope you enjoy doing it again! Have a great week and happy reading!

  2. I don’t really have the patience to knit these days, but maybe one day I’ll take it up once more, too. I’m glad you’re enjoying it, even if you can’t really wear hats and scarves in SoCal 🙂
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  3. Knitting would be such a relaxing hobby, it’s good you’re getting back into it! I’ve heard good things about Study in Charlotte and Riders, so I hope you enjoy.

    I live in SoCal and I definitely know what you mean. I can’t wear any of my favorite clothing items because of the weather. So, when it rains, I get super excited! lol

  5. I tried knitting way back in the day, and it was okay until it wasn’t…LOL. And yes, colder climes are better for knitted things, although sometimes up here in Central California, it gets cold enough.

    Thanks for sharing…and enjoy your week. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  6. I have heard good thing about Riders by Veronica Rossi – I hope you enjoy!

  8. I wish I could knit but I can’t. I’ve never really learned and now I have so little time, I don’t think I want to pick up another hobby. It’s great for listening to audiobooks though, I have quite a few friends who do that.

  10. oh I haven’t tried knitting, although I have done crochet. One of these days I will pick knitting up though. Glad your enjoying get back into it.

  11. I have a friend who has all kinds of hand issues and she also struggles with knitting, but she loves doing it. I don’t know if I’d ever have the patience to learn. Happy knitting – and reading!
