Ends and Beginnings

I finally finished my shawl last week, and boy am I glad to be done.  The weight of the shawl was making for very sore wrists during the last 40 some odd rows.  On Sunday, I cast on a pair of Sheepy Pants for Liliana.  I am loving the yarn which is Cascade 220 Paints in the Carribean Sea colorway.  I kind of wish I had purchased a couple of extra skeins in this color because it is absolutely gorgeous and the color has been discontinued.  I am not the only one who likes the colors either.  Aside from Ish complimenting it, a random gentleman in a waiting room stopped me to tell me that it was pretty.

As for reading, I am still reading about fermentation, but I have also been listening to a lot of books.  In the past few weeks, I have listened to L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea, and I have moved on to Anne of the Island.  All three books are read by Karen Savage on LibriVox.
