My chinese takeout photo made it into the top ten for the Knitting Blog week photography contest! I am super excited. Go HERE to vote! All of the pictures are really amazing.
Now on to my work in progress.
This Sunday is the dedication of the Kansas City Temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is kind of a big deal for Mormons, as those of my faith are often called. I spent the last few weeks taking friends through during the open house and serving as a tour guide. It was fun to tell people about a place that is very sacred to me.
For the dedication Sunday I need a white handkerchief. It can be a plain white one but I wanted an embroidered one for this special event. Unfortunately I have been procrastinating actually doing it because I would rather be knitting. I am running out of time though so it is my work in progress this week. I need to finish the embroidery and sew lace on the edges.
I picked up this book at the library last week. It is really short but a good read. I am a big fan of Anna Quindlen. Her fiction books are great as well. Here is a quote from Being Perfect:
"Nothing important, or meaningful, or beautiful, or interesting, or great, ever came out of imitations. What is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself."
I have been knitting too. Some progress on my second sweater for charity. I am over half way done. Going to the movies soon and hope to be able to knit quite a bit of the stockinette while there. I am very excited to see the Hunger Games!
And a little bit of progress made on my citron shawl. This is the book I am listening to on my commute to work. I didn't have a book on CD for a week or two and I was struggling to stay awake. I picked up a few this past week at the library and this one looked entertaining enough to keep me awake. John Grisham isn't amazing literature but he tells a good story. He did go on for about half an hour describing the delicious Italian food that the silly American football player was eating. I was starving by the time I got home!! :)
