Books of Many Kinds

I haven’t posted in awhile because I have been so busy with school and my many projects that I forget that I have a blog.
*Exciting news! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is going to be released 21 July 2007. Yeah, I am proud to declare that I am an obsessed fan. Look at my sidebar for a countdown. I’m also excited because a knitter has come out with a book called “Charmed Knits” that are based on the books/movies, which will be released in April 2007. As soon as I get this book, I will be knitting away on my Harry Potter items. Brilliant.*
My mom and I have decided to make an afghan for my aunt who is getting married in March. We are crocheting a blanket that contains 315 3×3 granny squares that must be sewn together one by one. It is a lot of work, but a beautiful pattern–gingham. We are making it in dark blue, light blue, and creme. It is going to be so beautiful and I can’t wait to have it finished. We are nearly half way done and have only been working on it for a week. Projects definitely go much faster when someone else is helping.
I am also going to be devoting my semester project in my American Folklore class to the tradition of crocheted afghans in my family. My Grandma and her sister knit and crocheted, I crochet and knit, and now my mom crochets. I will be taking photos of the many afghans I have received and made over the years, so I may post the pictures of my wonderful family history later this semester.
I may be working at a bookstore soon. I have an interview at Borders and I hope that I will get the job. I want to work in a bookstore soooo badly, I can hardly wait. Wish me luck in my interview and I will post when I get the job.
