What a pleasure it is to sit down to write a post, know what I'm going to write about, and have those things (reading and knitting) be important parts of my life.

This week I've found out that resistance is futile. After I finished my last Hitchhiker, I made some sort of rash statement about finishing some projects first before I cast on my next Hitchhiker. Mary bet that I would have another one on the needles by the end of April, and it turns out she was right. It was the perfect take-along knitting, for a road trip and a Decemberists concert, and I've had this JulieSpins No Regrets colorway marinating in my stash for too long. I love everything about this project even though I just started it. I'm willing to admit that I'm a bit less unraveled if I have a Hitchhiker on the needles.
I made a little more progress on my Peace Cowl, but yesterday's 85 degrees didn't inspire me to work on a fall/winter project. Maybe I'll make a push to finally finish it towards the end of the week when the temperatures return to normal.
My reading is the same as last week: Moments of Seeing. The essays entitled Cleaning and Boys have provided some enlightenment!
