Reading Lately

So I haven't managed to knit much, still working on that second jaywalker sock, but I have managed to read some.

I just finished 'The Kite Runner' this week and overall it was a pretty good book. I did learn a lot about Afghanistan that I did not know before reading the book and so for that educational part alone it was worth the read. I don't think I will go on to read 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' unless someone really convinces me that it is worth he read.

currently I am reading this:

I'm only on page 75 but so far so good. I've read the previous books and I know I'm behind the curve, but it's fun light reading that doesn't require a whole lot of extra thought.

Since we are officially into fall, I want to start knitting my first sweater, but I'm not quite sure which sweater pattern i want to knit. I'm thinking something a little on the chunky side because i love big warm sweaters and chunky knits go fast. I've seen a couple of Twinkle patterns that I love and so I might have to look into buying one of her books.

Nothing much has been going on around here, work as usual. I'm trying to get together the items I will make for Christmas...I need to start now in order for them to all get completed by Christmas.

My babe is so sweet, he went out into his garden yesterday and picked me a beautiful rose

it smells soooooo good and from far away it looks kinda fake, but it's the real deal. I love my babe, he's the best!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
