Last night’s knitting group was wildly successful. I finished all the chart work for my Ice Queen and even started thinking about working the picot edging before I pooped out. All of us were nursing ourselves back from crummy days with a little knitting fix. After a few hours knitting, we all were much happier . . . and the caramel brownie did not hurt either!
I got myself all tangled up in the instructions for the picot edging, but I am not panicking — I think I was just too tired last night and I’m going to spend a little research time on Knitty before I get myself into a total snit. I am excited about a project started on Saturday and finished within the week, so I’m going to try and get a bit more done today and tomorrow. I would love to put this thing in the mail soon! I have to admit, I would also love to make one for myself too.
How to keep my knitting mojo going? More audiobooks! I’ve been bouncing around between more serious stuff and “beach reading” like Phillipa Gregory and John Grisham. But I’m having trouble finding good suggestions for serious stuff. At the moment my main complaint is about book reviews. I’ve sniffed through NY Times book reviews for the past few years and found some treasures. But today, when I was looking for other credible sources for book reviews . . . nada. How could this be? Does no one read anymore? Is it possible that the NY Times is the only publication that deals in literature?
Come on blog buddies . . . what am I missing?
