I took my knitting with me, you know, to work on while I waited. I just kept sitting there, in the darkish room, so satisfied with myself that I could continue successfully knitting even after the drops were in.
Two days later, I picked up my work and it wasn't quite right. I continued on down the row of eyelet, and it wasn't until the row was finished that I realized I'd added two extra rows of stockinette between my eyelet rows. To make it all right I'm looking at frogging about six rows now. Argh. That's why I've been reading more, and knitting less. Denial can be a beautiful thing.
On the book front, I am working on two books, both new and good. I was trying to work out the Kindle Lender's Library nuances and just picked the first book that popped up in the queue to see if it would download. As it turns out, it's a pretty cute read! The Ladies' Room is a book about a woman who discovers a nasty little secret while in the stall of the church bathroom at her Aunt's funeral and how her whole life changes afterward.
Pictures of Hollis Woods is a book written for and often read by pre-teens. It is the story of a girl who runs away from foster home after foster home whenever she "gets the running feeling." The book tells us of the two times she didn't want to leave a home, once in the past (which obviously went wrong because she left) and now in the present. It is a bit of a coming of age tale and I rather like it so far.
