Granny square bottom bag

I wanted a cute gift bag and this pattern came about! It's an open granny square at the bottom (not good for holding tiny things but great for wrapped gifts!) and granny stitch up the sides with a handle at the top.

Volume 7: Captive of Gor

This book focused on a specific minor character for most of the story, compared to the others with Tarl as the main. The person it focused on was a spoiled, lying, cheating, brat of a girl and I don't think I felt bad for her once during the book. The first part was hard to get into (as usual), it plodded along as the story was set up. It took me until around 100 pages in before I was able to read more then a few pages at a time and when it finally grabbed my curiosity to keep going.

Volume 6:Raiders of Gor

This book started pretty slow, but turned into a swashbuckling-action-oriented feast! It was reminiscent of the first book and I really enjoyed it for the most part. I find in almost all of the Gor books I start out a bit bored while they set the story up, then get hooked when the meat of it starts.

Volume 5: Assassin of Gor - What in tarn-ation?!

Immediately this one was better than Nomads, and thank goodness for that. This was reminiscent of the first two books, full of adventure and action. I really enjoyed the journey and the prose was pretty good this time.

There were some twists and turns in the story but nothing you don't see coming from a pasang away. I was moved by some of the conflicts the characters faced and got quite attached to some minor characters. There was one surprise I didn't expect, they certainly fooled me there.

Putting on the Knitz....

It's been a very busy, very...strange 6 months. Lots of sickness has gone around and I'm on a merry-go-round of being sick it seems this year.

I haven't been knitting or crocheting much, saying that I still have 6 projects on the go, and I've been itching to cast on a . I think it'd be perfect to wear to work in the air conditioning this summer.
