monthly updates

March Wrap-Up

After a wearying winter, this month passed with astonishing speed.

Knitting: I didn’t actually finish anything I worked on this month, so no pictures yet. Am 1/3 through the current shawl, and I have ~20 rows left of this cowl (I tried to power through it yesterday, realized that I was just going to kill my shoulders and probably still not get it done, so put it aside).

Books: I finished three that had been started back in February (The Scarlet Pimpernel, Life in the French Country House, and Steering the Craft). Read four entire books (Anna and the King of Siam for book club, Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World, and I re-read two more Ngaio Marsh mysteries).

That’s 15 so far this year, which is great for me. Life in the French Country House is a good resource, and I expect to use it a lot. Steering the Craft is wise and lovely as Le Guin always was. I didn’t think much of Anna and the King of Siam. Range was okay, but do get it from the library.

Hikes/Activity: Three hikes, plus I went skiing for the first time ever! Unfortunately the second hike might have overdone it a little. We’ll see how the knee does when I go out this weekend.

Writing: Fairy Hills has a cover, and I am 2/3 through the final edit. Artist is working on the cover for Prometheus Skein. I should have a release date for both of them by the end of April.

Can’t complain about all of that. Onward into April! The tomato seedlings we planted last week are already sprouting.
