I can’t seem to get the pink of the yarn to show up correctly on the computer screen, but it’s reasonably close. I would have preferred something a little lighter, but the lightest I could get was this Bernat Softee Baby in Pink (very original name), Walmart having a so-so selection.
For bedtime reading I’ve been rereading After the Storm: True Stories of Disaster and Recovery at Sea by John Rousmaniere. He also wrote Fastnet: Force 10 about the 1979 Fastnet Race disaster. While the latter book is more about seamanship and a particular storm, After the Storm is much more analytical and literary in nature, exploring the emotional and psychological reactions to calamity in addition to the seamanship. There is even a section on the prophet Jonah and St. Paul’s shipwreck, but I wouldn’t recommend that so much. The interpretation (beyond just an analysis of the storms and seamen’s actions) is heavily protestant and rather annoying.
