I’m getting started on a selfish knitting project and it’s time for serious sweater swatching. For small or non-garment items I often just start and use that as a swatch (I’m lazy!), but sweaters require the proper swatching and washing and blocking and measuring. Time consuming, but I know worth it.  I’m hoping my gauge will work out and I can start on a Harvest cardigan.

One of my reading goals for 2016 is to reread more of my favorite books after almost two years of only reading books for the first time.  So I’m rereading Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin, which is an interesting read about habits and types of people.  I pretty much love any book that categorizes people so this is right up my alley.

The Killer of Little Shepherds is about a serial killer and the start of forensic science in France. I read The Poisoner’s Handbook last year which is a very similar book about the birth of forensic science in America, so it’s been interesting to compare them.
