I had meant to have this post up this morning. But instead I took part in a writing sprint with the small NaNoWriMo group I am a part of.
I am pleased to say that 5 days into NaNo and I am doing pretty well! If nothing else, this will help cement my writing practice.
There has also been some knitting. A husband and baby who both have colds make for some quiet times around here. When knitting can get done. Along with some reading! (please don't ask me how the laundry, dishes or cleaning is going. Suffice it to say there is clean clothes....just not always folded. There are clean dishes....just not always put away from the dish dryer. The cleaning....well the house isn't filthy but there may be extra toys strewn around the house at bedtime!)
This morning I finished my Purple Monkey Socks. I love this pattern. After binding off I was struck that this yarn probably would have been better suited for a shawl. If they weren't a Christmas gift, and if there was more time until Christmas, and if I didn't have to knit two more pairs of socks for Christmas, I may have frogged them. But time you know.
I finished The Alchemist last night and LOVED. IT. I must buy a copy for myself. I haven't said that about a book in a long time. This is one of those that needs to be read once, if not twice a year. Like at the New Year. And maybe again in the summer.
