I'm joining Ginny's Yarn Along today. It's so fun to hop around and see everyone's projects and learn about new books, too.
The front of my alpaca vest is finished. Look at the stripes! I like them.
I've been knitting and watching Elizabeth. Our television is very old and very big, but it keeps chugging along. Listening to her speak and watching her knit is incredibly FUN to me. You can get the dvd here.
Her hands are so sure. You can't imagine how many stitches she knit over the course of her life. I want to tell you about another knitting blog that I find utterly fascinating. It's Jean's Knitting. She lives in Scotland and she's brilliant. Pop over.
I have more knitting books than finished projects. For a certain period of time (a few years ago now) I couldn't resist knitting books. I've slowed down now. One Skein Wonders (the first one) is handy and "to the point" so because I had just two skeins of the golden yarn, the Seafoam Shawl appeals. It calls for bead trim. Do beads make a shawl heavy? It will be a small shawl and I like how Ginny wears shawls, wrapped around the neck like a cowl.
Our boys have delicious boxes of books and Jeff's are still in our basement (some of them). I found this. Have you read it? It's beautifully written, packed full of what humans must know about fear-based government.
We do need to pay attention. I waited a long time to read this but I'm glad I'm reading it now.
I can't stop taking photos of the "golden" I'm seeing everywhere. I Waterlogued the two below. Blue so blue. Autumn splashes. It is a very good time of year, isn't it?
Pop over to Ginny's if you desire a big gulp of yarny goodness.
