March has flown by. Before I know it, we will all be bracing for the 100 degree days of a North Carolina summer. That isn't all bad though. I can knit and read while the AC is blasting at 68 degrees :).

Throughout the month, I've been knitting here and there. I'm still working on the Icarus shawl which I desperately want to finish at this point. It's quite beautiful in all of its Malabrigo Lace glory.

I also managed to whip out the Sunday Market Shawl. The yarn came from Mum Rector and is Malabrigo. I love going back to basics. The shawl was knit in stockinette and then stitches were dropped to create the lace effect. What a great pattern!

I've also been reading. I've read 16 books out of my 52 for the year. I think I'm making good progress. Books for this month include:

Water for Elephants by Sarah Greun
, an excellent novel!
Mademoiselle Boleyn by Robin Maxwell, a somewhat trashy fictional account of the life of Anne Boleyn
Appointment with Death by Agatha Christie, a typical Christie novel set in Jordan
