But now I'm free!! Exciting times are ahead - in a couple of weeks I'll be moving 2,000 miles away to New Mexico, where I will finally get to live in the same zip code as my fiance. There's a lot of unknowns out there, but it just makes life more of an adventure, right?
In addition to finally getting to "read for pleasure" and settling into my new home, there is always more knitting on the horizon. I'll have to content myself with a pair of socks for now, though, since my yarn has been packed away in preparation for its long journey.
I finished Green Gable a few weeks ago, in time for Maryland Sheep & Wool. I was originally concerned about the fit - so I made a Frankenstein version. The top half is a size larger than the bottom half - to accommodate my bulging biceps, of course. I'm quite happy with how it turned out, and I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of this sweater in the future.
One of my little experiments over the past few months (mainly done while "working") was starting a blog of all the books I read. I'm not sure if I'll stick with it, but for now I thought I'd give it a shot. You can see it here: Read It Like You Mean It.
Also, one of my former roommates has started a blog. She's originally from Pakistan, and has recently moved back home to start a new job. Her writings are really interesting comments on a country that most of us Americans know little about. Check her out at: Thoughts.
