A Fun Book...
I just finished reading a book called We'll Always Have Parrots by Donna Andrews...yes you read it right, it says parrots. Well, I know you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but truth be told, the pun in the title was what made me grab for this one. It was a really fun, and really clever mystery that takes place in a convention (much like a Star Trek one), where parrots and monkeys are on the loose, everyone's in strange costumes and all told through the eyes of an "outsider"...well, sort of. It makes fun of itself too, but not too much...a great beach read...I would have read it on the beach if my body had any sort of capacity to tan.
In knitting news:
I would have been done with one of the sleeves of my newest creation if I hadn't messed up the front. There was much unravelling (and many words which I won't type in this blog), and finally the front was finished and one of the sleeves is now about halfway done. I can't wait until the finished project comes together...I will say this, though, it's in a very bright turquoise!
