Three winners

infidel.jpgMy current read is: Infidel and it is truly an eye opener. This book is the story of a young Somali girl, born to a politically active, educated father and a strict Muslim mother. Her childhood spanned 4 countries as the family fled chaotic Somalia and turned to Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia and Kenya. As Ayaan moved, her view into the world outside her own, expanded creating a crack in the beliefs embedded in her through her mother, grandmother, teachers and family.

My Olana sweater is just about 3/4 finished and it has knit up beautifully – with one small (hopefully) problem. I’m using Araucania Nature and even though the yarn is from the same dye lot – there is a very obvious difference on the back of the sweater – from a very muted variegation, to a bit stronger variegation. I’ll have to keep my back to the wall 😦 Other than that, the sweater is coming along and should be finished in a week. One sleeve to go.

And finally – here’s a first: I’ve never seen these two this close without blood being shed!
