Oops... more yarn

There is a sale currently at the yarn store (I wish Darlene had a website in which to show all of you) but anyhoo, there is a sale currently so I went a little bonkers today. I bought this insanely soft Frisky yarn in which to knit my Grandma a shawl (last I heard Grandma doesn't read blogs so I'm safe) and I also picked up this pattern here in which to knit some for either me or xmas presents for pumpkins (or adults, whatever). I picked up two types of fur, blue and sparkly white, and two types of body yarn, an off-white and a soft purpley. The purple and sparkly white go together while the blue and the off-white go together. Do you like my picture below? Heh. I can't start until I finish some of my current projects which are actually coming together nicely lately. I only have about another two hours or so on my mohair shawl and then another evening of tv or a movie for my spca blanket.
In other news, life is kinda messed up but not in a drastic way. I miss Jim. Work has its highs and lows. My room is atrocious! The kitties are good. I got a new book from the library since I finished American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Very, very, very good. I had a little bit of a rough patch getting into it because the main character seemed kinda flat but the book addressed that and it just kept on getting better and better. I picked up Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris so I'll start that when I finish The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin and V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. I haven't seen the movie for either of those. I want to see V for Vendetta but The Stepfords Wives... meh.

I miss you too, Leone.

I'm just starting American Gods for the second time. The first time I had the same problem you did--the main character seemed too flat, as well as just depressing. But this time, I'm planning on reading through, as everyone likes the novel.

Love,
Jim
