Current projects and booksI just finished a cute hat and capelet set for HRH. It's very cute- purple angelhair and pastel variegated ( almost "baby" colour) faux mohair. I did the hat in vari V-stitch with purple trim, and the capelet in purple fishnet with vari trim.
I am about half way through a fishnet shawl for myself- a foundation chain of 135 (which somehow yeilded 33 loops) decreasing one loop per row. It's in a pinky-purple boucle I got at the Deseret store for a mere $1.
I am reading some John Barnes books for an online book club. I'm almost done with Orbital Resonance, which is very good, and rather reminiscent of the Heinlein "youth in space " novels. After that, it's The Da Vinci Code- finally!
Oce I drag myself of the puter, my project is the lawn- with an old skool push mower. Gas prices, ya know.

Maybe I'm amazed......that I can leave a project strewn over the couch when I go to bed, and no one will disturb it
...that I'm woken by my 9 year old telling me, "You're omelette's ready!"
...that I can actually get TIRED of hearing about Star Trek
...that is't noon, we've done school work, laundry, ballet practice, and the chores are almost done so we can go to the zoo
Life is good.
