My Lucy Hat!:
The Spinning Room yarn shop, but I didn't think of it at the time. Plus I was impatient and wanted to see how it turned out. So. I love it. But I will love it more when it is blocked correctly. Did I mention that the main color is yarn I spun myself????!!!!?!?!?!
Also, my SKYP socks are coming along slowly. Not too much knitting got done this week since I was quite busy with babysitting my little doodlebugs. Pause the blog to say: They are so darned cute. We are in the read-this-book-10,0000-times-in-a-row stage. Also, starting to try to say words: I say, "Benjamin, can you say 'book?'" and he says, "BA!". I say, Benjamin, can you say, 'dog'?" and he says, "BA!".

They just make me laugh so much!

that is exactly what the colors look like.

A perfect next-book after reading
Chaz Perrone is a self-involved, inept, marine biologist who throws his wife off a cruise liner. Unfortunately for him, she is a great swimmer and survives the plunge into the ocean. It is then her mission not to turn him in, but to get revenge. Excitement and hilarity and some romance ensue. There are a few sub-plots mixed in, which add to the humor, one of which involves the detective investigating the wife's disappearance. He is apparently a recurring character in Hiassen's books. I will definitely read another.
But now, I'm off to start:
