There has been more reading than knitting lately, but I've picked up the needles again and have put on a few more rows.
The knitting is the shawl I am designing and creating for the charity auction. I'm liking it so far, and I especially love the color of the yarn.
The reading is Seeds of Deception by Jeffrey M. Smith. It is about, well, the deception of big corporations and government in hiding the dangers and effects of genetically modified (GM) foods (with their own political and financial interests in mind, of course). I knew a lot of the points that have been made already from other sources I've read and watched, but it is still nice to get another viewpoint on the subject. I am only a chapter and a half in, and I am already feeling the renewed desired to get our produce exclusively from our backyard, farmer's market, or other organic and natural sources. This stuff really gets me going!
Linking up to Ginny's Yarn Along today.
What are you reading? And, since I'm curious, what are your thoughts on GMO foods?
