I received a call last night, letting me know that a friend had passed away.

I only spoke to them the other day, arranged to catch up and now they are gone.

It just doesn't seem possible.

I am going to play with some yarn and try not to feel so lost.

Too Too Hot

Summer has made it's presence felt and the plans I had in my head for knitting seem to have gone out the window.

Reading has been preferable to having yarn on my lap the last few days. The closest I have gotten to actual yarn is reading blogs. I love the bright pink being spun up over here.

I very much envy all you who are just going into winter.

Can someone send me some snow? I think I need to throw it at these guys.

They decided that a house just down the street was a good place to hold a training session for some new recruits.
The cats and I decided it was a nice moring to sit outside and be entertained.

November, ribbing and yarn additions

It's November and there is a challenge I have seen floating about.
National Knit A Sweater Month.

Considering how I flit between projects I decided to give this a miss. I think I enjoy watching everyone else race to the finish line more than participating.

What I did decide to do was play with Noro in November after being inspired by all the Noro Knits I saw last November.

And just because I had nothing on the needles that wasn't at some point of needing concentration I started a beanie for Miss B's Uncle.

Miss B's Black yarn has arrived. Time for some craziness.

And as a reward for even considering to attempt black ribbed craziness 5 balls of Rustic Red Currant joined to order.

I did have plans for a wrap cardy but I think this yarn wants to be something else.
