I'm still finding myself compelled to knit, even though I know I should be working on my tiny applique blocks. I did a little applique last night, but I really wanted to be working on the knitting.
Now that I've moved a few rows beyond where I cast on, the loopy wool is a little easier to work with, I've never used one quite like this before, so it's a learning experience for me. I'm not sure that I'd choose this kind of wool again. I really did like the feathery type of yarn I used the other day, so I'd go for that again for sure! We're into spring, and heading toward summer, I seem to have the knitting bug in the wrong season here, I wonder if it's because I've seen all your wonderful knitting and been inspired??
Also in the picture is a book I just purchased. I just love Maeve Binchy, and have everything she ever published (well, that I know of). Her books just speak to me, I wonder if it's because of my Irish heritage? I'll add it to the pile of 'to read someday' books. I still have yet to read the Truman Capote novella I showed you some time back, and have only read about 20 pages of Persuasion. Reading is a favourite thing, but quilting trumps it, and life seems to be getting in the way lately!
Wonderful news here, my laptop is back on the information superhighway, and I'm able to cruise through blogs once more and see the pictures! It's just mysterious, and obviously some kind of obscure setting is not quite right on the desktop. I can get my life back on schedule, I felt a little lost, as my outlook calender is something that keeps me organised, all our appts etc are in there ... I even schedule my chores *blush* Anyways, life is back to normal *yay*
