I haven't been reading as much as I would like this week, just a few sentences of Outlander really. The radio in our car bit the dust, so finding time to listen to my audiobook was difficult. Instead, I indulged my new obsession at home--knitting videocasts, of all things. (As usual, Susan B. Anderson inspired it all, which led to The Knitgirllls, and most recently Junkyarn.) It pretty much feels like hanging out and knitting with talkative strangers at first. It makes me want to FaceTime my faraway friends so we chat and knit the day away. Let me know if you're up for it, especially if you would not mind seeing my kids running amok in the background.sunny tube socks for Lucy the other day, just to have something a little more portable on the needles. My sweater has always been a bit unwieldy, with this ginormous yarn cake, but up until now I have stubbornly heaved it around with me. I just came across a knot, so I cut it and put aside the body to begin the sleeves, using the trick from Granny's Favorite for gapless underarms.
CNY Fiber Festival on Saturday. Last night I whipped up a buttonhole swatch to take with me. The ceramic buttons do fit nicely and I have exactly enough for this pattern, so they aren't quite out of the running yet.
