Diversions...

A couple of little things...since I worked all day, and then came home and donned my Nana Sadie Rose hat and sewed all evening...(nothing you haven't seen before, so I won't reproduce it here)

I cast on last night for something for ME - my own Spiralucious this time ...
in left-over STR Mustang Sally to match my Knotty Gloves in the same yarn...(I'm hoping I have enough to make it through as I haven't weighed or even measured the leftover yardage)

And the other thing I'm trying to do is finish this:

I had no idea what to expect when I ordered this, but what a delight this read has been! I like Barbara's work anyway, and to have a magickal love story, knitting, and Vermont all in one? Well...what fun!

I was gifted with Knit Two for Christmas, but then realized I hadn't read the The Friday Night Knitting Club yet, so ordered it from the library. We have our monthly meeting of the Roanoke Valley Knitters and Spinners at the library on Thursday night, so I'll pick that up then...

Wow. A wealth of little diversions. In a month when I really shouldn't indulge in them at all...
*wink*

You need the occaional diversion after work, y'know. Are the rooms put back together? It sounds like a wonderful swap of furniture and more bookshelves is always A Good Thing.

Those spiralicious-eses you made for others are really cute!

Ooooh..more Mustang Sally. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it. I finished Casting Spells over Christmas and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Happy New Year!

I've heard several good things about that book; I'll have to check it out.

Looking forward to seeing your Spiralicious. I hope the yarn holds out! And, I've been trying to find a mostly reds semi-sold yarn, and had forgotten about Mustang Sally--so thanks for the inadvertent reminder!

Happy New Year!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
