The day before we left, I knocked out a quick washcloth for Dave. Finishing this quick project set the tone and energized my knitting. On the drive to California, I hunkered down and began my sweater. I knit and knit and knit on it. I even took it to the beach. I am almost done with the body of the sweater. Woo Hooo!! My gauge is still off, but I am forging ahead. It is sure to fit someone I know. The pattern is an easy, fast top down raglan.

I am still plodding through An Object of Beauty as well. It is for my book group AHEBB (Angry Housewives Eating BonBons - named for the book by that name which was our first read). I am not enjoying it much. It is a bit difficult for me to get into. If I were reading it for my own pleasure I would have quit.
Do you ever quit reading a book?
I never used to do this, but I started in the last few years. It is so liberating. I find I only have so much time to read, so why spend it reading something I don't enjoy. At first I was a bit guilty but no more!
