Daelyn pullover is off the needles and being blocked. It was a delightfully quick knit ( for me, not being one to knit with worsted wt yarn very often!) Of course, I would have preferred that it was grey, rather than this grey-ish beige, but this is what was left in the stash. I may or may not try to get a photo of me in it, but rest assured that it will be worn. It's long, oversized, cozy and just the thing to knock around the house in all winter long.
At this very minute in time....I'm not knitting anything. (That is....actively knitting; there are a ga-boodle of UFOs kicking around and one just may get adopted as 'project of the week' but I'm making no committments. Of course, I just bound off the neck about 10 minutes ago.) It's a very weird feeling for me having nothing I'm drooling over starting. Yes. I took my temperature and it doesn't appear that I'm sick.
Books? I finished Frankenstein (Mary Shelley version) and liked it much more than I thought I would when I was about half-way through. Keeping with the 'Frank' theme, I followed up with Julia Claiborne Johnson's debut novel, Be Frank With Me. It's a quirky story about a young woman sent cross country by a publisher to help a struggling author get her long awaited second novel written. Her job was to 'do what it takes' to get this accomplished...which included cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the recluse author's 9 year old son, Frank. Frank obviously is autistic, although a diagnosis is never given in the novel; he's a delightful, bizarre kid---who is obsessed with old movies, misfittingly brilliant, and attires himself in creative, if somewhat ridiculous, turn-of-the-century get-ups. It's a good little story....pretty well written....that kept me up one night until the wee hours of the morning to finish. It'll put a smile on your face.
I'm joining Ginny and yarnalong and hoping to find something I can't wait to cast on!
