Just in time

I put the final touches on my blocking of my red lace doily just as the clock was switching over to midnight and marking the beginning of November, better known to me as Novel Month--where all knitting becomes a guilty pleasure as I procrastinate from writing.

This year's novel is a modern adaptation of the classic fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood (with perhaps just a bit of Hansel and Gretel mixed in). I'm very excited about it. If so inclined I might even share a bit with you all.

If any of you are or ever have been interested in writing a novel, now is the time to do it! It is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and a whole slew of people around the world will be happy to cheer you on, share their stories and share the misery of trying to crank out 50,000 words in a single month. You can find them at Nanowrimo.org. If you decide to try it let me know, I can always use more writing buddies.

Good luck to you! I'll check back in in December.

Lovely knit stuff by the way. I'm looking for other Baha'i knitters on Ravelry...are you one?

Happy Birth of Baha'u'llah!
