Is there a job where I can get paid to read?

I am a terrible blogger! March 1, 2010

Oh boy. I am so terrible at blogging! It’s been 4 months. Sooo…the NaKnitMo challenge is complete and I did make it to 30,000 stitches.

Another challenge I’ve been participating in is the 3rd Canadian Book Challenge and I’ve been fairly horrible at keeping up with that too! I had originally planned on reading and reviewing Canada’s earliest books for children, published in the 19th and early 20th Centuries. That, unfortunately, would have required quite a bit of reading on the microfiche machine at the library. Since my extra time is limited I figured that I wouldn’t really have enough time to hang around the library reading at the machine. Instead I’ve decided to do graphic novels for kids and teens by Canadian authors and illustrators. I’ve actually read three up to this point so I’ve got an awful lot of catching up to do.

 

Another Challenge November 3, 2009

I’m taking part in NaKnitMo during the month of November. Basically, the idea is that I’m trying to knit 30,000 stitches during the month. So far I’ve been working on the Woodland Shawl and Margot. The shawl needs to be finished by November 19th because I want to wear it to this year’s Canadian Children’s Literature Awards. Margot needs to be finished for Christmas for a very special someone who I don’t think reads this blog (but I’m not gonna say just in case!). I need to find the battery charger for my camera but once I do I will post some photos of the projects.

2,820 stitches down, 27,180 to go!
