There has been a whole lot of knitting over here a che poopers but not a lot of finishing. I think it’s due to project ADD because I want to start a dozen things but finish nothing.
I decided to knit these socks for my friend Jim because it was over socks that we first became friends and I thought he’d appreciate these great colors and handspun quality of the yarn.
I’m also working steadily on my Creature Comforts cardi. I love this sweater but I hate knitting it. I HATE it. For anyone curious this is a 31 inch rectangle with pockets. If you are a larger gal like me it’s a LOT of knitting with out much interest. The oak leaves add some distraction but honestly, not enough.
I have also been harvesting and juicing oranges from the back yard. One random weird secret about me is that I love orange but I hate eating them. My best friend Shawna will attest that it takes me about an hour to eat an orange because I must pick off all the pith before consuming. It’s just not worth the effort for me. So I juice and freeze the spoils so that I do not waste the oranges. Then I can use the juice for baking & cooking as I choose.
The Mr and I went to a book signing tonight. Frankly it was the first for me and though it won’t be the last I totally wasn’t prepared. I told the Mr this “It’s Brandon Sanderson, you know, he wrote the Mystborn series” Little did I know that he had also written the last Wheel Of Time book after Robert Jordan passed. I’m not a Wheel Of Time fan so I honestly wouldn’t have put 2 & 2 together.
And I got a little something for me…
I will be burning through this and adding a review on this site. Of course it’s Tad so I’m biased but this series is deeper than his others I think.
