Joining "Frontier Dreams" today and sharing my creations.
I had the most amazing yarn delivered to College of Atlantic where I was visiting my son. I was inspired to buy a Malabrigo in fall tones (color: marte): Friday Fantasy Knits- Autumn Shawl Dreams
College of The Atlantic
While I didn't get my hands in it till I reached home, I'm happily working on my Elise's Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief now.
It's going up real fast in this DK weight yarn on #8 needles. Almost too fast, I don't want the project to end! My remedy for that is to begin my Christmas hat knitting (more on that later).
While the themes are both connected to archeology (the author being an archeologist), they are totally different reads and characters. Just loving them, adventure, witty, intrigue. The characters' witty repertoire is fun and amusing and a plot you don't want to end. Oh, and did I mention romance? My favorite style, slow, hesitant and slowly coming to a boil. And usually a situation where they mustn't. And the books are long. The last book managed to last me my entire 2 week trip to Maine. Of course I alternate reading and knitting, so that lengthens any read. But it was so fun, I kept looking at the percentage of pages to go and sighing in relief that I had plenty left to read!

Soon, unknown to me, a reception for the parents was held for Parent weekend, so I was surprised to be joined by everyone from the President of COA to Jonathan's friends and parents. I had no clue (didn't read the schedule yet) and it was a pleasant surprise with very good hor d'oeuvres (fancy seafood pastries and vegetarian delights, I'm Pescatarian, in other words I'm a Vegetarian that eats fish) and wine.
Join "Frontier Dreams" to post your projects on Tuesday or later in the week.
Nicole says: "The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link" on her blog, link above.
