I'm almost finished with my woolen scarf. I've added a section in a rose color; it will be the last section because this scarf is getting really long. I'm still deciding whether to join the ends. I'm enjoying this project so much. I've used the pattern to make numerous scarves as gifts but this is the first time I've used it to make something for myself. It's just nice to work on. I like to crochet a simple, rhythmic ripple design, oh, yes I do.
I've just begun reading Bernd Heinrich's Summer World: A Season of Bounty. The LB will be reading it in school this year and I'm reading it myself to get ahead. I'd listened to Heinrich's Winter World: The Ingenuity of Animal Survival in audiobook format a couple of years ago. I found it fascinating and learned a lot. I really loved that book. So far, Summer World seems just as good. Heinrich studies the seasonal adaptations of living things and tells their stories in an unexpectedly gripping way. The secret lives of plants and animals!
