I've been knitting a top-down pullover for me. I'm hoping to use up most of the cotton yarn I have in my stash and make something useful out of it. I don't have much more to say about it right now, except that the Norwegian purl (with yarn in back) is a lifesaver for knit one purl one ribbing.
Tales from the Perilous Realm is a collection of short stories and poems by J. R. R. Tolkien. It's been thoroughly enjoyable light reading so far.
