(Thanks for clicking through the SOPA Blackout page. I try to avoid politics on this blog, but SOPA could have such a profoundly negative impact on the crafty blogger community that I was compelled to participate in the blackout today.)
I finished The City and The Stars, which was another Arthur C. Clarke masterpiece, but decided not to continue on to the Sands of Mars. This week, I’m reading one of my birthday gifts.
So far, I’m enjoying Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs more than I expected. (By the way, Misadventures in Craft was reading this book last week, which inspired me to read it next after finishing my library loaner.)
Oh, what’s that? You want to see what I’ve been working on, you say? I am finishing a secret project, and my sister’s blanket was too large to photograph in my dimly lit apartment or outside in the pouring rain. So I’m sharing my swatches from the Colorful Cables class I took with Melissa Leapman on Sunday at Vogue Knitting Live.
(Ignore the messy work – I was frantically learning new techniques in a classroom!) I can definitely see myself working with slip stitch and color blocked cables in the future. I might even consider the stranded cables. But the intarsia cables? Not so much.
