reading: lily and i found the alchemyst by michael scott at the bookstore in a display that stated, "if you liked the harry potter and percy jackson series then you'll love the alchemyst!" we both love potter and she's percy jackson crazy (she's currently reading house of hades as i type this) so we decided to give it a try.
keeping in mind that this is a series for young readers, and remembering how potter #1 began, i am going to say that i'm 3/4 of the way through the book and will say that the series has potential... they're fun, but very derivative. i'm willing to give them a shot though to have a new book series to read with lily!
knitting: i've been making fair progress on my adriana shawl (rav link). i'm continuing to love everything about this project... the yarn, the pattern, and oh, did i mention how much i love this 100% alpaca yarn?!?!
and yes, kate, i made sure to post this week because again my book coordinates with my knitting!
