Return to Knitting

Since my last post, I have finished reading The Joy Luck Club, started and finished Tuesdays with Morrie, and have started Uncle Tom’s Cabin. After I’m done with this one, I will either start The Help or Wicked.

Also, I miss knitting so incredibly much that I think I’m going to start back up slowly for like 10 minutes at a time. I was working on a pullover and want to get back to it and finish. It’s the Sweet Pink Pullover by Klever Knits. I love the lace stripe on it.

Book Worm

I have finished reading Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. It took a while to read it since it’s 1069 pages. It was one of the best books I have read. It really made you think.
Now I’m reading Lois Lowry’s The Giver. It’s a short light read after the monster I just finished. It’s a strange book. I know most people read it in school and as young children but I never got around to it. I have like 5 or 6 books lined up after this one. I just can’t get enough.

New Hobby

Since I can’t knit, I’ve decided to read more. I bought myself the new Nook Glowlight. It’s pretty cool. Right now I’m reading Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. I’m about halfway through. I’ve also decided to draw more like I used to. Here is a pencil portrait I drew while I was in high school many years ago.

Sad Realization

I have decided that I’m going to stop knitting for awhile maybe forever. It’s so sad because it’s my absolute favorite hobby. Both my arms are bothering me now and I can’t have that. I think the one is caused by a pinched nerve in my shoulder or something. I have a huge knot in my muscle right on the spot where it hurts and parts of my hand are somewhat numb. Time for a good massage.
