Check-In: June 16

What I’m working on: Okay. I’m still working on my fiddly, fiddly patterns. I’m not even going to promise that they’ll be out by the weekend because we know how that goes.

But, I did get this up on the shop:


It’s a little different that my usual stuff, but I really had fun playing with the colors.

What I’m listening to: First of all, I don’t know if you guys have heard of this obscure little show called Hamilton… Okay, I’m super late to the game on this one. I’ve kind of ignored the hype up to this point because I tend to be picky about musicals. But, after the Tonys, I decided to give the album a listen… and I’ve listened to it everyday since then. Whoops.

I don’t know why I didn’t think I’d like it. Revolutionary statesmen are my jaaaaaaaaaam.

Second, I know I’ve plugged The Memory Palace before, but please listen to the latest episode. It’s so good. It’s a illustration of the march of progress — and the heartbreaking ways history repeats itself.

What I’m reading: I’m still reading X-Men and Secret Wars. But I’m also working on Truthwitch by Susan Dennard, our latest book club pick. I’m really enjoying it. I love a unique take on the standard fantasy world. It’s also pretty nonstop with the action, which makes for a pretty swift reading pace.

I also picked up Hamilton: The Revolution. I’ll probably get the Ron Chernow Hamilton biography when I’m done with it.

Libraries are the best, y’all.
