Listen to this post as an mp3 file (for posts after 3/6/06)
Page 161 and Pillows

Don't die of shock, but, yeah, I'm actually posting something.

I just got tagged by Melissa (the famous author) with this book meme. You open a book you're currently reading to page 161, and copy out sentence five. Here are the sentences from some of the books I'm currently reading:

  • "The boys were avenged."
    from Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain (for our homeschool literature class)
  • "Richard calls it 'The Geet.'"
    from Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert (recommended by a friend)
  • "I realize that I can roll."
    from What is the What by Dave Eggers (an impulse buy at the book store since I really liked his book A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius)

I'm supposed to tag five other people, but I'm no good at that. So consider yourself tagged if you're reading this and you're interested. Let me know in the comments that you responded so I can check out what you're reading.

I've been knitting a lot, but I haven't had much time to post about it. I've taken a lot of pictures lately, so I hope to update my blog soon. In the meantime, here is a picture of one of the things I've been working on.

It's the Persian Tiles pillow kit that I got for Christmas (available here). It's knit using Alice Starmore Hebridean 2 Ply on a US3 needle. I'm using Calluna (dark green) as the main color and Red Deer (reddish brown) as the contrast color. It's coming along well, but I think I'm going to run short on yarn. I haven't even reached the halfway point and I'm on the second of the two balls of Red Deer that were provided in the kit. Big bummer.
