The bobbles are getting easier, and I've almost figured out how to wrestle four skeins of yarn at once. Double stranding on a project with two colors isn't something I'd recommend, but I'm not sure how else to make this project work.
There's just SO much yarn involved. I'm hoping it'll get easier once I move on to the body...but first I've got to join the live stitches from all six arms. Twice, because there's one color for the bottom and one for the top.
I just finished That Night, Chevy Stevens's newest book. Here's the description from Amazon:
As a teenager, Toni Murphy had a life full of typical adolescent complications: a boyfriend she adored, a younger sister she couldn’t relate to, a strained relationship with her parents, and classmates who seemed hell-bent on making her life miserable. Things weren’t easy, but Toni could never have predicted how horrific they would become until her younger sister was brutally murdered one summer night.
There's a sad, hopeless feeling that runs through the entire book. A couple of days later, it's still hanging with me. My mood probably isn't helping -- I don't know if I'd have had a different reaction if I'd read it under other circumstances.
