Winter 2010/2011

Reading: Re-read HP & the Deathly Hallows. So good, and this time I took my time and I think I followed it a little better. The first time I was in such a rush to find out what happened I don't think I really absorbed it. JK Rowling really is excellent at creating a complete world. I get really pulled in by her books and I think others do as well.

Am a bit more than halfway though Radical Homemakers. I agree with many things the author says, but being someone with a few chronic medical conditions I can't really swallow her ideas of no health insurance, but some of what she said in that section did make sense and from a few things she said it sounded as though she is a proponent of a state run health system like the rest of the free world has. Which I can certainly get behind.

Creating:
March was National Crochet Month, and during that month I worked very hard on various things for the CLF's NCM Scavenger Hunt on Ravelry. It was a lot of fun and I made a few silly things for points. I also made another v-stitch shawl, this time in a red/orange combo called Saffron & Wild Fire I believe. Not really my colors but she liked them. Still have to work on Amanda's. Hope I can do that during break. Also made some squares for Heartmade Blessings again, for Operation Purple Heart.
