Alright...and yarn, too. Oh, and life in general. (happy now?)
I got this meme from GiGi's blog. Here is what you do:
Find the nearest book, flip to page 123. Find the 5th sentence. Record the next 3 sentences on your blog. List the book's title and author.
The Knitting Circle by Ann Hood
The quote of 3 sentences:
"Staring out the airplane window as they headed east, toward home, Mary thought of the new year without Stella. Sighing, she pulled down the shade on the window, blocking out the endless clouds. Dylan snored lightly beside her."
Now, you'd think from this quote that the book is horribly boring, but it really isn't. It's pretty good. I already finished reading "Knitting Under the Influence" by Clare someone (sorry, I'll find it later) and it was surprisingly great....a very easy read and very girly, but I really got into it. It was difficult going from Lisa See's "Snowflower and the Secret Fan" (which is now one of my favorite all time ever books) which is fabulously well written and deep to this one, which is more fun and light...but still very enjoyable.
I've got a horrible sore throat today and I've tried to not talk. For me, VERY hard to do. For my huband, BLISS.
Here is a pic of a tree in the front yard of our house COMPLETELY bent over with ice and dangerously close to the windows....
Oh, also a pic of the sock blockers I got HERE. Aren't they awesome?
UPDATE: I've finished one of the patterns I designed for One Planet Yarn and Fiber and I'm almost done with the second. When they're up and available, I will let you know and you'll be able to buy them here off my blog in pdf form OR from One Planet Yarn and Fiber in pdf form and also hardcopy. I can't wait to tell you all about them and how much fun I'm having knitting them. I should be starting the third design soon...and that one I'm REALLY excited about. Wish I could tell you more....
