New things to report on both reading and knitting fronts. Thanks to all of your wonderful advice, I've decided to make a cowl with my luxurious single skein of alpaca and I'm going with the Amerie. I was drawn to it right away, but, to be honest, the provisional cast on and the three needle BO scared me off. So I searched and searched through Ravelry and while there are tons of beautiful cowls out there, there wasn't much else that fit the weight and yardage I have. So, I'm going to close my eyes, cross my fingers and dive in. Eeek.
In the evenings I'm reading The Roof at the Bottom of the World, a historical account of the discovery of the Transantarctic Mountains. It's fascinating and the photographs are breathtaking. I used to have a very detailed fantasy of finding true love on a scientific expedition to Antarctica, which is hilarious considering I really can't handle the cold and uncharted frozen wildernesses otherwise hold no draw for me.
