I'm still working on the shawl, ever so slowly, but the progress has hardly changed at all so I didn't want to bore you.
Plus, it's time to start a new knit! And I'm going to be doing it out of this yarn (or something similar). It's spring, and my chronic Startitis is acting up.
As far as reading, I think a better question would be what am I not reading? I've had an addiction to the library lately and my pile of books to read is literally over a foot high. It's exciting and daunting at the same time.
My most current of the current books is How to Grow More Vegetables* by John Jeavons. He is the creator/founder of Ecology Action, the group that came up with the GROW BIOINTENSIVE method of gardening, and they also run the Bountiful Gardens seed/garden supply company. This book explains their methods. I am about half way through and it has been a wonderful book so far. I think I will be adding this one to my personal library as it has opened my eyes to a lot of gardening information and would be a good book to read every year as a refresher. For a gardening newbie like me, it's been a great "this is how you get started" book and explains a lot of why you should do it, which I like. I'll be using a lot of the principles this year as I try to get my garden in working order... again... for the third time... I really hope it works this year!
Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along!
What are you reading and/or knitting?
