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.
