I spent the better part of the last few days holed up, grumpy and *reading. Since I seem to be frogging everything I knit, I decided to save time and NOT KNIT.
(Well, okay, so I did a bit of the border for the Lace Edged Top aka Golden Gate. But that's barely knitting. At least I didn't frog the whole thing.)
Then this! that you can get here, and more: such gorgeous yarn! Luckily there's The Dark Tower to go with it (black yarn). Bellamoden dyed it especially for me, yarn for Eunny's Endpaper Mitts. So perfect, eh? A nice stained glass effect.....
And because the quiz colors are too, too perfect with the Carrie yarn, stolen from Kniting in the Shadows:
|You Are Sunset|
And you feel free to pave your own path now, and you're not even sure where it will take you.
Maybe you'll pursue higher education in a subject you enjoy - or travel the world for a few years.
Either way, you approach life with a relaxed, open attitude. And that will take you far!
Yes, yes, that's me in a nutshell. Relaxed, open attitude. Quit laughing, BFF & Brother & SIL.
Secondhand Smoke by Karen Olson, the second in her Annie Seymour, journalist series. I enjoyed this one out more, maybe after finally getting into Saving Grace on TNT.
Winter Moon by Mereces Lacky, Tanith Lee and CE Murphy: Short stories by three good fantasy writers, I picked up the book for Banshee Cries by CE Murphy as it's the 1.5 book in her Jo Walker series. A nice way to spend the afternoon.
Am currently reading The Possiblity of an Island by Michel Houllebecq. Found through Dewey.
** Read previously and didn't post a review: Restitution by Lee Vance, read & reviewed by Joy who didn't care much for it but thought that it was the financial angle - I actually picked it up because of the financial angle and while I didn't dislike the book, the characters seemed very flat and plot driven. There were a few characters (notably the women) who would switch gears completely in a single conversation.
