reading: i've started a new book! and i'm so so so so excited about it i can not even begin to tell you! i have been in love with hildegard von bingen for practically ever... we sang a number of her compositions in women's chorus in college, her life story is so amazing... i just get all goo goo eyed when i talk about her!
when i saw that there was a novel of her life i didn't even think twice, i just bought it! i'm only one chapter in, but so far illuminations by mary sharratt gets my full thumbs up. simply for its subject matter. all i want to do today is put in my favorite hildegard cd (11,00 virgins by anonymous4), sit by the fire, and read all day long!
knitting: i'm back to the pair of hedgerow mitts (pattern rav link) i began making for my friend last winter to keep her hands warm in her cold office. when it became clear that i wasn't going to finish them before the weather warmed up i just set them aside until fall. well fall is here, so it is time to finish the mitts before the cold weather really sets in!
tell me friends, what are you reading and working on at the moment?
