Knitting and Reading

I'm joining the Yarn Along again this week!  I just finished The Keeper of the Bees.  It was wonderful and I'm missing it now that it's over.  It was the last book Porter wrote and I only have a few more to read.  I'm going to spread the last few out because I know I'll be sad when I don't have anymore.  I imagine I will re-read them eventually, though.  They are just so good!

I started a new knitting project last week at our knitting club... this really pretty stole pattern that I picked up on our little mini vacation a few weeks ago.  It's my first time knitting anything with a lace pattern to it.  I'm excited and a bit nervous.  In fact, when I got home, I realized I had made a mistake so I ripped it out and started again... I haven't made it past casting on this time around, though.  The yarn is called Irish Jig and it's a mix of flax, cotton and rayon. It's really nice to knit. The color is called Wagon Wheel.  I'm really excited to have a new project to work on for spring.
