To infinity - and beyond!
Warning :: I have many unrelated things in my head today - so I hope you will bear with me.
I finished my Dipped Infinity in a week. I love it! Though, she needs a good blocking - it is curling up like a sleeping bag for now. This project has been a great way to use a myriad of different fingering weight yarns. And now, it has me on the hunt for something else that uses different colors to use up some more. I am yearning to keep at my quickie projects, maybe a stripey set of Toasts? Suggestions welcome.
I also have to tell you what happened to my mittens this week...On Wednesday, on my regular walk, I found my mitten - the one I didn't know I had lost. I apparently had dropped it right in the exit path of a factory - where lots of semi-trucks methodically squashed my mitten. Let's call it blocking-to-the-max. After shaking off the dirt, it appears perfect, well, a little duller, but a bath will help. How is that for a vote of confidence for Plucky Knitter's MCN Worsted? It takes a licking.
I just finished Under the Dome by Stephen King. King, is a departure for me. I read all of his books up to about 1987 (The Tommyknockers, I'm thinking?) and then decided enough. He writes about gross things and the clown on IT, well, that truly was "it". Ack, hate clowns. Anyways, my kindle allows me to "sample" books - and I thought King deserved another peek, I mean - for free, why not. I ended up buying the 1000 page book of crazy...and I liked it. Just sayin.
This cute little grandma is to blame for my shameless book loving.
