Wow, that week went by so fast!
I finished the red wool pullover and the cotton horse sweater, and they are already shipped, so I can't show you pictures. I am just finishing up a black wool patch pocket cardigan, but I can't show you pictures of that either, because my camera batteries are dead and I don't have any backup batteries here at the store. I will try to get pictures of it before I ship it, though. I finished the punch card for the leaf, and as soon as I finish the black wool cardigan, I will knit some hats with leaves on them, as I try out various color combo's.
I haven't been working on my hand knitting or my spinning much lately, as I should be, because I have been taking a reading break. I realized I hadn't read a book in about a year, so I have read The Lightning Thief and started the next book in the Percy Jackson series, something about Sea Monsters. Also I finally read the third book in the Tamir fantasy triad by Lynn Flewelling; the book is called Oracle's Queen, and it was a fantastic read. Lynn is such a fabulous writer! I would love reading her books even if she didn't go to college with me. She is amazing, I tell you. I think she's the next Anne McCaffrey. I loved Anne McCaffrey's dragon books, too.
My "work" handknitting, such as it is, is still the short rows scarf made from Audrey, and I really must start knitting that Hard Alee pullover for the knitting cruise very soon. Yikes.
