I recently entered a blog give away on Cindy's Blog and to my delight I won! The prize is a copy of the new book Fiber Gathering, it's a book I was going to buy so I am especially happy to win it.
DS went back to school today and I already miss him tons. We had fun with him while he was here and had a great visit. I ate entirely too much this week, the diet has gone out the window again and I really have to get back to a healthy eating plan. Despite being a Weight Watchers member I don't seem to be able to stick to the diet for any length of time especially during Passover with all the foods you only get once a year. It's hard to pass it all up.
The shawl is coming along nicely, I've been working on it to the exclusion of everything else so I've no progress to report on the sweater. I just love doing lace. DD has asked for a scarf in Slytherin House colors to wear to the new Harry Potter movie when it comes out. A friend of hers wants one too and I said I'd make her one if she paid for the wool. I'm probably going to do it gratis though, can't see taking the money from one of DD's friends. Now all I have to do is find the time to go to the LYS and buy the yarn in the proper colors.
I finished Water for Elephants and really liked it the discussion on the book starts on April 15th which ought to be interesting. I've never participated in a book group before and I am not sure how an online one is going to work but I am willing to give it a try. The voting is now going on for the second book we are going to read but I don't like any of the choices so I am going to give it a pass next month. I am deep in the middle of another book titled The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club and I cannot put it down. I highly recommend it. But word of warning it's a very British book with lots of British English in it but don't let that stop you it's too good to miss and I am a sucker for "knitting novels"
