Currently Reading/Making:

I need to keep up with this more.

Books: Started Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By In America by Barbara Ehrenreich a couple of weeks ago, but wasn't really in the mood for it lately. I just started Wicked by Gregory Maguire and can't decide if I like it or not.

Hooks: I've made 4 ornaments, 3 of which will be going in my secret pal package, which should have been mailed already, but oh well. I've been working on a garland to go with it also, cause I felt the 3 ornies weren't enough. It's done in the basic "bookworm" pattern...3 dc in each chain so it twists around. I'm also attaching jingle bells to it, using the technique I learned in Drew Emborsky's class on the cruise. I have 2 other exchanges coming up, both due around the first week of Dec I think. Ornaments and a birthday fun exchange. Don't know if I'll make anything for the b-day one or just send yarn and patterns.

Currently Reading/Making:

Reading:
The Red Tent by Anita Diamont

Making:
Nothing! Just finished a Secret Pal project-It was supposed to be a sandcastle but my god it was taking foreverrrrr, even with the alterations I made to save time. So I scrapped it and made a water bottle holder instead. :o)

Now it's a question of what to start working (or reworking) on.

Long time no blog

Wow I haven't posted here in almost a year! I feel slightly bad about that. I have also been neglecting Ravelry, and haven't been taking pictures of the things I've crocheted. I've read a few books (well maybe more than a few) in the past year. A few of them are:

Beauty by Robin McKinley
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Chicks with Sticks (And the sequel) by Elizabeth Lenhard
Re-read both HP6 and Angels and Demons before seeing the movies
The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs

I'm sure there were more but that goes back to October or so.

I do enjoy reading and crocheting...I must find time to do both. I need to spend less time on the computer!
