On The Needles :: Stormborn & Tardis Socks

Untitled

Knitting: I'm halfway through clue 2 on my Stormborn shawl. I like it so far, but I do hope there will be some new lace in the next clue... And I have one Tardis sock off the needles and have casted n for the second one.

Reading: I picked up Kanten av isødet - (Chasing the Light in english) the last time I was at the library. Haven't read much yet, but I think it might be good.

It's the early 1930s. Antarctic open sea whaling is booking and a territorial race for the mysterious continent is in full swing. Aboard a ship setting sail from Cape Town carrying the Norwegian whaling magnate Lars Christensen are three women: Lillemor Rachlew, who tricked her way on to the ship and will stop at nothing to be the first woman to land on Antarctica; Mathilde Wegger, a grieving widow who's been forced to join the trip by her calculating parents-in-law; and Lars's wife, Ingrid Christensen, who has longed to travel to Antarctica since she was a girl and has made a daunting bargain with Lars to convince him to take her. As they head south through icy waters, the race is on for the first woman to land on Antarctica. None of them expect the outcome and none of them know how they will be changed by their arrival. - From Goodreads -
