My Winter of Discontent swap box arrived yesterday.
Two pretty colorful soft skeins of Knitpicks yarn arrived from Kris in Michigan. Brownie mix to warm the tummy and Manhunt
by Janet E. were included as well. I am thrilled.
I just finished The Art Of Pausing by Judith Valente.
It is a spiritual book to be read a bit at a time.
My friend Eileen gave it to me.
It is subtitled: meditations for the overworked and overwhelmed.
It is a very quiet read.
I'm ready for Manhunt!
Here is another shot of my headband.
I can't always promise or deliver fancy pantsy knit ups, but this one is just plain fun.
I have an idea. I lose my place in complicated patterns with many rows.
Garden Gem by Sabine Riefler involves 28 plus rows to make a shawl. This pattern was included in my swap box.
I'm going to record the rows out loud in my smart phone.
THen I'll play the instructions back to myself.
This could be a riot of a mess or it just may work
that's usually the toss up with me and new patterns..
I don't always knit out loud,
but when I do
I drink Dos Equis….
