Contests and Knitting

Today I won this:
The Fixer Upper: A Novel
from The Book Case, a literary blog I follow. It is described as, "...a hilarious novel about one woman's quest to redo an old house . . . and her life." This is the second book I’ve won this year! Now, if my luck would extend to Powerball.

I also started my knitting class last night. Who knew casting on stitches was much like neurosurgery. Domestic arts may not be my thing. But I have two more classes. I’m determined to make something like this


for our local children’s hospital Knitting for Noggins campaign. It is a wonderful service project that enlists knitters from all over the state (and country if you are a knitter!) to craft knit hats for discharged children during the winter months. I have a hospital kid, so it’s a project I want to complete. I have ALL summer. Surely I can do it!
