I started making a pink scarf with white diamonds crisscrossing it using Red Heart Super Saver yarn. I found the pattern in a book containing patterns for afghans. Strips are made in this pattern and then crocheted together. Some day if I have time I might try to make the whole afghan. Right now, I only have time to make the scarf.
This is a strange book by James Patterson. I've found that Patterson's books are hit or miss. This one, I'm afraid I would have to say is a miss. Daniel X is an alien hunter who lives on Earth. His parents die when he is very young and he must take their place. Although fast to read, there are not any huge plot twists and turns that are usually present in Patterson's books.
Due to the fact that I didn't really like the pattern in the book (it would take too much effort to do and I couldn't find all the colors needed), I decided to pretty much make my own blanket pattern. I've never designed a blanket on my own before, so hopefully this one will turn out OK.
This is a pretty good book, though not as good as the other Artemis Fowl books. Artemis' mother is sick, so Artemis must go back in time to save an extinct animal (which he "killed"). During this time, he has to face a younger version of himself who has less morals and is willing to do anything to raise money to fund an expedition to save his dad. However, events do not happen as Artemis remembers. Additionally, there is more to the story that Artemis does not know about. Also Artemis and Holly have to try their best not to change anything so as not to change the time/space continuum and the future.
