As you probably guessed from the short posts for the last several days, neither knitting or spinning have really been on my mind.
Reading still – going through a couple of paperbacks a day (or a library book).
But I am contemplating hauling out the loom. Not that I need another project underway. There are only three WIPs that really count – the second “Peacock Sock,” my Kauni cardigan which still needs the second sleeve and facings, and the Gallery Jacket which is now four fingers above the armhole split – all the way across.
Now – that means that I really don’t need to think about starting something new. Even tho I have yarn dyed for a couple of afghans from three years ago. Or a number of cones of this lovely blue that came in a while ago.
What started all of these thoughts? A nice, useful size catalog from Webs that arrived in today’s mail. There is no lack of wools, and some decent cottons for weaving. But I haven’t played with Tencil or Bamboo on the loom. Those are new fibers since I last threw a warp on the small beast.
Of course, I also received a lovely box of sales audio books in the mail today. Enough to last me a longish time. The post library loves the CDs and the MP3s, but they are no longer taking donations of anything on cassette.
I wonder if your library is trying to force everyone to go modern? I still like tapes as well as cd’s, although my husband and friend swear by mp3. I hope my library doesn’t force me into the modern age any time soon!
