I had been to Reading and back to join a knit meet up (lunch at Wagamamas and a wander through John Lewis), with a chance to see this wonderful reproduction of the Bayeux Tapestry made in 1885 by 35 Victoria embroiderers. That they were ladies goes without saying). Ok, for those who are not history buffs – 1066 and the Norman Invasion? Battle of Hastings? William the Conqueror?
Confirming my conclusion that I loved the pattern but did not like the colors (have already picked out new) – Stillwater
Arriving back home – I was here
and ended here
I always underestimate the amount of time it takes me to knit miles and miles of garter on 3.00 mm needles.
Since I got to here without bothering to read the directions, I need to rip back 5 cm or modify the neck a bit. Well, duh, modification it is. Armhole as written was a bit shallow for my taste.
There are those times where I stop listening to audio books part way through. Sometimes it is boredom, sometimes I am just not in the mood and others? Perhaps it is a mismatch of reader and material that is too annoying. The following three fell into none of those categories – I had just misplaced CDs or files.
Decided to finish listening to several partly heard books since I am in a finish things up mood. Retrieval Artist – Kristine Kathryn Rusch which is the novella that started her series. Second Sight and Sizzle and Burn (Jayne Ann Krentzs Arcane Society Series written under Amanda Quick for the historical novels)
Moving on – Starship: Pirate – Mike Resnick, the second book in his Wilson Cole Series has now only an hour to play. After that, I think I am up for a bit of non-fiction before moving back to Mercedes Lackey’s Phoenix books (which just seemed to drag on and on in the middle).
