Books and knits and magic...oh my!
So the other day I finished The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart that we read for my book club...it was a really weird book. A man throws away all his free choices to the whim of the dice and pretty much chaos insues. In the beginning it made me really uncomfortable reading it, but as I got toward the end, I began to see the humor in it. I would only really recommend it to those who like really strange black comedies.
In Knitting News: I started the second bolero jacket of the custom set yesterday. I was hoping to get the back done, but I didn't have enough time...and then the "Biggest Loser" was on (which I'm totally addicted to) and I needed to focus all my energy on cheering Tara on...I don't actually know her or anything, I just think she's going to win.
And my mom keeps gushing over the beret I made for her...it's the same one as in this picture, only green...she swears it doesn't give her hat head! I definitely want to make some more of these for next winter.
In Magic News: They added 4 extra sets in addition to my 6 shows, which is why I didn't get the back done on my sweater...at first I was kind of bummed, but there were fun people in the hotel yesterday and I ended up having a really good time...the sets are going to last for a month, so I really hope that fun people keep visiting Las Vegas.
