New


Books - I've already looked through More Sensational Knitted Socks, and it looks great! I finished Casts Off in one evening, and hubbo got hold of it and read some bits out loud to me and LAUGHED! He swore me to secrecy, but y'all had to know that he, a non-knitter, found jokes about knitting funny! We are going to take over the world! I'm excited to read the "Friday Night Knitting Club," but I may not have time until school's out - it's pretty nuts for the next six weeks.



Yarn - Some Regia Cotton Surf in lovely pinks (one of my favorite yarns - so soft and pretty!), and some to-die-for Claudia's Handpainted laceweight 100% silk. It is so much prettier than I can take a picture of. It is a gift from Jen for dog-sitting duties. It is so gorgeous. I never thought I'd be one of those who'd have stash to just look at, but this tempts me. I'm not sure I could do it justice knitted up.

I also may or may not have tripped and fell into a pile of Paton's Classic Wool - the striping variety, at Joann's today (it was on sale). I'm thinking of several projects for it - but they may have to be kept secret for now.

  1. Gotta love a husband who laughs at knitter jokes! I like the Regia colorway. I'll have to see if my LYS carries any Regia cotton.

  2. Looks like you are enjoying your walks with your dog -- a nice way to take some time for yourself after work. :)

    I am wanting that pretty pink Claudia's yarn in your photo -- definitely a skein to enjoy looking at even if you decide not to knit it up for a while.

  6. You'll have fun with Friday Night Knitting Club. I SHOULDN"T know that to tell you though since I also have had tons of grading to do and a Master's thesis deadline. I always feel like knitting and reading when I'm in such a situation:)
