I started a new prayer shawl, which is knit in squares and then pieced together. That lets me knit it a square at a time and makes me feel like I'm making a lot of progress.
I started reading Les Miserables. I'm always wary of reading "classics" because I have been so thoroughly unimpressed by some of them. (The Old Man and the Sea to name one...) But so far I'm really enjoying Les Miserables. I don't know if it's the fact that I don't really know the story so it's full of twists and turns or that I feel really accomplished for reading it because it's such a long book to read. Either way, I feel like I can't get enough of it lately.
