I've been MIA from blogland, what can I say, I've been reading instead of knitting (oops). Its that dang border on my hugmongious pi-shawl out of the lovely koigu - Sugar Honey Iced Tea, I still haven't finished that dang border. I know. I'll get back to it, this summer, sometime. I also have to take pictures of the finished knitted projects, but I can't seem to put these books down.

I just just - last night - finished "Color of Law" by Mark Gimenez. There I was in Borders, browsing and this book just fell off the shelf right into my hands (seriously). I turned it over and instantly had a flash to one of my favorites - To Kill a Mockingbird. Mark you did good. It was fresh, fast-paced, and the hero was named "Atticus" - what a man! That golf club would have done me proud too and the lil girls - one named Barbara Boo and the other, Pajamae (Pa shu may). I haven't read a book in two days in a while, not even a Patterson novel. Thanks for the rush.

Next up in my hands will be Adbuction by who else, Mark Gimenez, then The Perk by Mark Gimenez (when it hits the shelves in July I'm on it). But while waiting for The Perk, I'll have to read Sail by Patterson - I just can't get enough of Patterson. And anything with the word "shark" around, draws my eyes in like a hawk. I'm love the ocean - I blame my dad and Ernest Hemmingway! Somewhere down the line, they got me hooked on the sea and its world of creatures. SHARK!!!!!

Ok, I typed an entire blurb for my blog and my computer went blank. Why?????

Well, I'm not completely brain dead, I remember writing, I love Ravelry! And, Knitster Chelle was right: when you fall, you fall hard.

What have I been doing? Working, Ravelry, knitting, Ravelry, reading, Ravelry, cooking (oh I made a dish - ok, I'll tell you about it on Ceme Eats Drinks and Shops later) and watching the Complete Jane Austen on PBS. What can I say, I'm an Austen, Bronte, Shelley, Collins, Brown, Dumas, Shakespearean classic book lovin nut, and if you put it on film, I'm there - ok, I know its a lil over the top, but from the mouth of my great grand mom, "you were here on this earth before for sure because my babe's soul is way old."

Now, back to Ravelry - oh my goodness, I learn something new each day. I learned today how to add my pictures to other groups (I'm a lil slow when it comes to technology, but I'm out there is what counts right - LOL!).

What have I been knitting ...

1) EZ's pi shawl - almost done - I'd say I'm at 90%. In Koigu on size 3's. Pictures to come. I have to take them this weekend.

2) Still got the Sampler Shawl from Folk Shawls on needles, I'm bored with all those dang stitches.

3) I swatched for Princess on size 2's with peach zephyr. I think I need 0's. Oh well, I got ahead of myself.

4) My top down sweater - frog! Classic Elite Wings on size 4's in dark olive. I cast on to tight. (For those who know me, I know, I know - LOL!)

5) Landscape - I have frogged the Lorna's Laces (something didn't look right) and now have Sea Silk. Shawl pic to come.

Well, that's it for now. I have got to go, the lil leprechaun is after me. I leave you with a picture of Meme waving
