One of the gifts I ordered for myself this Christmas (story for another blog post...) was SP-M Casts Off. It arrived today, and I cannot wait to open it. It's not a new book. Published in 2007, it's a travelogue through the land of knitting. But it's new to me and I'm really looking forward to a good long late night, not ready for sleep read.
A friend from our quilt guild admired the socks I knit and I offered to show her the ropes if she wanted to stop over some day. She's been sitting in a lot of waiting rooms waiting for her DH to finish up with OT and PT in recent days, which is perfect knitting time. i.e. nobody makes eye contact, usually people are anxious so they're not really chatting, and no one stays long enough to distract the knitting person!
I do not profess to be an expert, but I did take that knitting workshop last summer and I have actually finished five complete two-sock pairs of socks!
But I feel like telling Stephanie McPhee thanks. Thanks for inspiration, for making knitting so
You should read some of her stuff. Really.
