I'm enjoying Amy Tan's The Opposite of Fate which reads like a memoir and a biography of her Chinese mother. (Hmmm, and I read Diane Keaton in recent months. Do I have a theme developing?) The stories are her musings written separately yet connected overall. Her humor and lovely writing add to the pleasure that is this book.
Of course, it isn't always pretty, is it? There was a bit of ripping and restarting, but it's smooth sailing now. The pile of speckled blues yarn in the other basket is an in-progress shawl for the Prayer Shawl Ministry at my church. I bought the yarn last year at Stitches West to use for a prayer shawl. It was a bag of 10 balls of Linie 97 Iceland, discontinued and sold at a bargain price. I thought it would be fun to make a shawl with some funky yarn. However, the focus is on the baby blanket for now.
