Yikes! Has it really been this long since I last posted? I have been busy, and actually haven't done much knitting in the last two weeks. I finished up the multidirectional scarf for Jonathan's mom, and gave that to her. And I started on another for my best friend, but have stalled on that in favor of reading a book. About two weeks ago I got this sudden urge to read something -- a pastime I sort of dropped after high school. While I was in college I rarely had enough time to read for pleasure, let alone for class. And after I graduated from college, I was so burnt out on reading that I took a break from it. But, my brain was itching for a book, so I had to scratch it. I picked up "A Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole. It's rather hilarious and entertaining.

In knitting news, I received my introductory kit from Rowan. I was expecting it to take longer, but it arrived in only a few weeks. I quickly browsed through the book, and have seen a few things I'd like to make. I also ordered some Valeria di Roma Arena, in dusty palm, to make this sweater out of. I need to do a swatch for this pattern so I can get the stitch down. The instructions are slightly confusing, but once I've tried it it should be easier.
