I've been meaning to post an introduction of me and what I plan on making, but I kept putting it off and then life got nuts which put it off more. My goal was to post tonight and I'm finding out that others are doing a shawl as well!! I've been working on this shawl for a couple of months now, but I think this KAL/RAL will give me incentive to keep at it. I'm using a feather and fan pattern with Euroflax yarn.
I came late to all things Anne, a friend of mine told me abt her and made me watch the last tape in the series. I'm not big on period pieces so I wasnt expecting to enjoy it, but OMG it was great!!! When Gilbert lay in bed dying, I made her pause the tape and tell me if he lived or not. She said she didnt want to tell me, but since I hate sad endings, I made her. At the end I'm crying my eyes out and everybody is looking at me, surprised at how emotional I was. They were afraid I was still crying abt Gil, but I told them no, this was the most beautiful movie I'd ever seen. I went right out and got all 4 tapes and then went out and bought the first 3 books. Its amazing how much more is in the book. I've been mostly knitting than reading, but I plan to start the book on Monday after I get the kids in school.
