I have been reading. I am getting close to reaching my goal of 58 books read before the end of the year. I have read the following: Thursdays at Eight by Debbie Macomber, Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, Looking for Peyton Place by Barbara Delinsky (this one makes me want to go back and read Peyton Place - God I remember how I hid this so my mother didn't see it), Drunk, Divorced and Covered in Cat Hair by Crazy Aunt Purl (she's not crazy, but a great story teller), The Undomestic Godess by Sophie Kinsella (I love all of her books), Daddy's Girl by Lisa Scottoline, Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of a Knitter by Stephanie Pearl McFee, and I'm enjoying the books by Sue Grafton: A is for Alibi, B is for Burgler, C is for Corpse, and D is for Deadbeat. When Sue's books came out I had no desire to read them and now I am going through the series and eating them up. What great stories!
These take me to 56 books read, so I only have two more to go to reach the goal of 58. I should be able to do that by the end of December. I already started E is for Evidence by Sue Grafton.
I still need to knit 4 more comfortghan squares to meet my goal of 12 by the end of the year. I have one started so I really need to get knitting with those. Next year I will make my goal 18.
I'm working on two pairs of socks. A pair using Yarn Pirate yarn and another using Trekking XXL. I am also working on my stuffed mittens. One is almost completed and then I can start on the second one. I have to complete the Noro scarf. I'm almost half way done, but it seems like it might be shorter than it's suppose to be. I can order more yarn, but the dye lots may not be the same although it may not matter since I am alternating the yarn.
I have gotten more yarn. Some Vesper sock yarn from Knitterly Things. Two great colorways: Candy Corn and Crew.
From Little Knits I got Noro Transistions at a bargain price. It's discontinued so I couldn't resist. I can make scarves out of it.
I couldn't pass up this yarn from Little Knits. The color is amazing for socks. It's Fly Knits in the Monarch colorway.
And, I got my Yarn Pirate sock club yarn. I like the color, but I'm thinking that I won't renew the sock club when it's done. I have enough Yarn Pirate yarn and I'm not sure that I like how it's been knitting up in the Spooky colorway and hope I don't have the same problem with the rest of the yarn that I have. The colorway is Solstice. It's a pretty blue and purple BFL yarn.
I want to get more Noro Silk Garden yarn for scarves and of course the Noro Sock Yarn to try and I definately want to get more Wollmeise. Except for those, I am going on a yarn diet at the beginning of the year. I have enough to knit from my stash for quite awhile.
