I am continuing to read Dog books. Or, Bear books, in one case.
"Stay" could be called a "Chick Book". Just a fun, light, comedic romance type of a tale, in which the main character (while a bit under the influence) orders a puppy from Slovakia over the internet. Needless to say, her life gets just a bit more challenging shortly thereafter.
While I admit that my knitting/spinning production level has been a little low of late, all has not been forgotten. Two pairs of Plain Jane socks are completed:
You may recall that I was sort of in a holding pattern till I hear back from Ellen, my DIL (it may be official by now too!) with details of the sweater she wanted me to knit, I did hear from her. Apparently, she did not realize, nor does she want a bulky weight sweater. The pattern she had picked out called for bulky, and since modifying it all is not what I wanted to do, we are now hunting for a new pattern she likes. Apparently, she has a sweater currently that she loves, and wants another similar. She is a physician, and while making house-calls to her elderly patients, she wears this sweater much like a lab-coat. So..... it may not happen soon, but eventually we'll find the perfect pattern, and I'll get busy on that project.
And, remembering even farther back....you may recall that I have done sample knitting for an indie dyer before. She contacted me recently and wants me to start knitting for her again. So....yarns are on their way, and hopefully I'll be getting started on those projects soon - as in later this week. Knitting with a purpose is great fun!
Oh, and speaking of knitting with a purpose, I wore this shawl to preschool last week.
I need to spin/knit two of these as Christmas gifts for next year. At least I have plenty of time. kind of which the color choices were different, but if that's what they want....
