This week, I'm making some more progress on my little crocheted bag. I stopped increasing and am now just working even, building up the sides. I haven't really made a concrete plan yet, just crocheting around and around to make it taller. I hadn't done much crochet-in-the-round for a while and had forgotten how much I enjoy it. Do you like to work in the round? I think my favorite thing about it is how neatly it works out, as long as you make the stitches in the right places. It's fun to watch the shape develop, even if you're not precisely sure what you're making...
I finally got back to the library on Monday and brought home a big bag o' books. All my life, I've loved having new library books, it's like Christmas for me! There's so much potential in unread books; I borrow a bagful and I'm happy as a clam for a couple of weeks. First up, I'm reading I Regret Nothing by Jen Lancaster. Have you read any of her books? She writes memoirs in the self-improvement vein but not the preachy kind. Instead, she swears a lot and tells funny yet thoughtful stories of her mistakes and misfortunes; she learns and so does the reader. She may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I like her.
