I actually finished this over the weekend but I took my time weaving in the ends and blocking it. Here's my KidSilk Haze oddity, an Airy Scarf (pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts) in stripes of Blushes and Meadow. I made it for Kristen because of all the scarves she's made for me over the past few months. Besides, she's probably the only one who'd appreciate the weirdness of a striped lace scarf.

The pattern is pretty simplistic. Thankfully KidSilk Haze is such a beautiful yarn that you could use it to tie up a roast and it would still look nice. ^^;....

I've made up my mind that I won't be posting photos of knitted projects in here unless they're finished. After all, what's the point of wasting people's time with images of works I probably won't be done with for six months? For those of you who've been keeping track, I have four sweaters in progress right now. That's bad. I need to finish one project before I start another!

I finished reading The Red Fairy Book a few days ago. I'm not sure what to think of it. It's good for reference. It's one in a series of many and I picked it out mostly because it contains "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," my favorite fairy tale of all time. There are four or five stories that stand out and the rest of them are pretty formulaic. I have a Norton's Anthology of Grimms' Fairy Tales left over from college and that remains my favorite book of its kind. Now I have to steal it back from my brother! ::sniff:: Next up is George MacDonald's The Princess and the Goblin. It's short and has huge print. Huzzah!

And I'm still writing. I've been making a lot of run-on sentences lately and I'd better knock it off!

Re: Fairytales
That sounds like a really good book! It's out of print, unfortunately, but I probably could find it used. Thanks for the recommendation ^_^!
