I put my holiday stress to good use this year and ended up knitting my fastest sweater yet. It only took a month compared to the 6 months and 9 months of my first two sweaters. It is the Shalom Cardigan by Megan McFarlane knit with Cascade Eco wool. I added the sleeves for warmth because,well, a sleeveless sweater in Oregon in January is kind of silly. I am pretty happy with how in turned out.
I am currently reading And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. The first chapter has already broken my heart which is what the author is very good at doing. I am only a few chapters in by am enjoying it. I also really enjoyed his other books, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid suns. If you have never read any of Khaled Hosseini's books I highly recommend them, he is a beautiful storyteller.
