I decided to participate in the Yarn Along I've read about on several blogs. You can be a part, too. Stop by Small Things to read about it.
For the first time since learning to knit, I'm making something just for me. I've been wanting this pair of fingerless gloves. So I'm finally making them - using the Brown Sheep yarn I bought on my first trip to a yarn store. I must say, I love it! How I wish I'd discovered this yarn when I first started knitting - it makes me a little sad to know that I have all of this other yarn to use before I can splurge on more yummy Brown Sheep.
Books! Last night I finished reading The Orchid Affair (book eight in the Pink Carnation series) by Lauren Willig. Today I will start The Kensei by Jon F. Merz. I received it as part of LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program. Hence it has been shuffled onto the top of my reading stack (I still haven't read Grave Goods from the library and there's another parenting book waiting for me as well).
Please forgive the yellowness of my photograph. What with the weird light, my limited photo taking time (the Imp *loves* my camera), and my sleepiness - I just can't be bothered to tinker with it too much.
