Recent additions

New scarves made from the gorgeous hand painted yarn I purchased at the Fiber Festival. I'm struggling with myself not to keep them.

Thank goodness my arthritis is only a little bit bad at this stage in my life. I've been crocheting like a madwoman, and man are my hands killing me. Still, scarves are flying out of here faster than I can make them. I'll keep on keepin' on.

Oh, and for you Stern fans out there, did you get this yet? I picked up my copy at the bookstore this morning (courtesy of Nabua via the leftovers from my birthday present...thanks again, Nab!) and made it through the first few chapters. I've cried twice already. What an amazing storyteller. He holds a special place in my heart.

Love those colors in those scarves. I think I will get out my yarn and do a little crocheting tonight.

Ok, Kate, just wanted to say.. I picked up the book today. Just finished Chapter 2 and I'm sobbing. He's got an amazing gift, I'm enjoying his storytelling.

Okay, can I just say that I'm glad I'm not the only one who has balled their eyes out while reading this book. So sad. I feel awful for him because he misses his dad so much and for whatever reason he feels like the accident was his fault. He's living his life trying to make his father proud of him, but because he's dead it'll never happen...hence, the addictions of just about every kind. So depressing. He's such an amazing person and unfortunately, he's not long for this world. Bummer.

Total bummer... I finished it this morning, thinking that I really hope he makes it through.. but in my heart of hearts, I don't know if he will. Really sad.
