I am reading Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto, its a translation from a Japanese story and I am enjoying it, but for a 150 pg book, its taking forever!
'Hungry for Change' which I read on Saturday and it really resonated with me. I have given up artificial sweeteners and ALL lite/diet/low fat products, easy! I've also been drinking more water. And since then I have been working my way though this great website 100 days of Real Food, which if you are at all interested in making some changes, I really recommend. I am taking it slowly, adding things in to start with, rather than taking things out (except the artificial sweeteners, they just had to go). This isn't about weight loss, at least for me, but more about long term health, and definitely that of my children who are fed far too many processed foods, which are going to be slowly replaced with a few more homemade things instead. I'll be back with more of that another day, back to the knitting!
On the right is my Wonder Blanket, I find it quite addictive, and figure if I give it a couple of hours a week, I will get there sometime this year.
Down the bottom is a new prototype I am working on, I won't say more, except its a boys design :) Now that my son has returned to wearing whatever rather than 'it has to be batman/transformer/superman/spiderman etc etc) he gets knits again, as I think he might actually wear them again!
And top left is a new pair of Basket Weave Rib Socks, just for knitting wherever I need some knitting, they will probably go quite slowly till I am back at kids swimming lessons and similar!
So what are you knitting or reading this week??
