I do love me a good KAL! As soon as I heard about the Stash Sweater KAL in the Stash & Burn group on Ravelry, I was in. The idea is to knit a sweater in the next two months from stash yarn, which is always an idea I can get behind. It's inspired me to get Liam's sweater out of the basket and back to the top of the priority list - I'm sure you can imagine his reaction. He's thrilled to see me knitting His Blue Sweater again.
I did manage to finish Lonesome Dove in time last week. Once I got into the story, it was actually pretty good (probably why it won a Pulitzer Prize...), although I think it's better suited as lazy day reading than get-through-it-quickly-so-I-can-write-about-it reading, if you know what I mean. Now that that project is done, I've turned my reading attention to Making It. I love this book! It's full of great suggestions for things you can make and do at home. I particularly appreciate the way it's organized - the book is broken down into daily, weekly, monthly and every so often projects, which I think is really useful. I was a fan of their previous book, The Urban Homestead, but this one is even better. If you are at all interested in doing things yourself, I highly recommend you check this one out. And as much as I love and support my library, this is one I'm going to have to own for myself.
