I’ve joined the Knit the Classics group. I’ve been following their blog for a while now, and always enjoyed reading about what people were inspired to knit by the various books.
I am looking forward to having a literary excuse to buy yarn, and a social excuse to buy books. Next up: Lolita, by Nabokov.
Another thing I am hoping is that participating in this will expand my horizons as a reader, and thus help me expand my horizons as a writer. There is such a grand wealth of literature in the world that it can be very challenging to get out side of my comfort zone with books – it gets difficult to find something both different and well enough written that I don’t want to throw it across the room and scream.
