KNITTING! This is the hat I"m knitting with Big Bad Wool that I won in the KH/KC contest. I first did a band doing a loose braided cable (with the darkest yellow):
And then I picked up stitches and am knitting around for a lighter yellow part:
READING: I finished "The Admissions" (it was good) and also read a book called "The Ice Twins". This one is really spooky--in fact I couldn't read it before bed it was that spooky. The book starts out with a couple moving to the far northern part of Scotland after the husband, Angus, inherits an island from his grandmother. They are moving with their 7 year old daughter, Kirstie. We learn early on that the couple had another daughter, Kirstie's twin Lydia, who died in a fall from a balcony six months before the start of the book. At the end of the first chapter, the mother (Sarah) asks Kirstie if she is ready to go somewhere and Kirstie says "why are you calling me Kirstie? I'm Lydia." And off we go.
WATCHING: FOOTBALL! Broncos won!
