Olympic knitting continues. I am heading into the last two decreases of the neck for my Olympic knitting project, the yoke of a Drops cardigan, knit with my thrift store sweater yarn. I'm liking the colors a lot and I think when the whole thing is finished it will be a sweater I will wear often. Getting it finished will be the trick.
7 Men by Eric Metaxas. It is a selection of short biographies of, you guessed it, 7 men who positively changed the world, starting with George Washington. The author has written full-length bios of Dietrich Bonhoffer and William Wilberforce, condensed versions of which are included here. I also enjoyed reading about Jackie Robinson and Eric Liddell. I'm recommending the book to Secundus, who is doing his junior thesis on the theme of leadership. It's a good one, easy to read if you're busy but still quite well-written.
