Well...I ended up caving with the books. I know. That was fast. In my defense, the only branch library in easy walking distance is tiny, so I have to use interlibrary loan, and it takes forever. It used to be faster; I think there were budget cuts. So anyway. We took a family trip to Borders. I got:

Outlander, Diana Gabaldon
No One You Know, Michelle Redmond
The Tale of Halcyon Crane, Wendy Webb

I've started Outlander.

I'm still going strong with the clothes and yarn. I have 3 projects on the needles: this, this and this.

nothing wrong w/hitting Borders...I'm reading Jon Krakauer's book on Pat Tillman... good read, then again anything by Krakauer is good.

Thank you :) I've never read him...but his name is familiar.

I love that first project (the capelet/cardigan). I have a couple sweaters like that, and I love them. Currently, I have 8 skeins of yarn waiting to be made into my first full-length cardigan. It's supposed to be my fall project, but I've been reluctant to start it.

Also, I commend you for trying not to buy stuff. Books are so tempting! I've been trying to use the library more, but there are also book swaps that I've been meaning to look into.

Big projects can be hard to dive into :) But usually fun once you start. I also like when the cardigan is cropped or short-sleeved...long sleeves can take forever.
