Huh, almost Thursday again. I’m sensing a pattern here.
I’ve started working on my last two papers of the semester and they are going pretty good so far. I haven’t started studying for the final yet. I’ll leave that for another week or so. For some insane reason I did join a knit along though (Ravelry link). What am I thinking? I don’t have time to start & finish a lace project over the next five weeks. Oh well, worst case scenario, I have another UFO taking up space beside me on the couch. At least it will have lots of company!
I’m about on third of the way through Great Expectations. I’m really enjoying it. I read it every morning and afternoon on the bus. Some parts of it make me giggle out loud. I guess your taste in books is like your taste in food and changes over time. I remember just not enjoying Dickens at all 20 years ago. Mind you, I’m also willing to eat Brussels’ sprouts now and that wouldn’t have happened 20 years ago either. Who am I kidding? I only started eating those in the last year!
And now, seeing as I actually made it home before it got dark I have a few picis for you. A sock in progress on a teeny tiny Hiya Hiya 9″ circular:
How cute is that? I thought it might be difficult to knit but so far it’s been pretty good. I do hold my hands just a tiny bit different but not too much. Strangely, I actually find it more comfortable then knitting with the 12″ Addi that used to be my smallest circular needle. Added bonus, this little needle is super transit friendly.
Added bonus shots! Here’s my Round Trip cardigan actually in the process of being worn. Whoo hoo.
Then, I got a little Rico Suave. I seriously need to get out more.
I was about to start doing Sears poses but the spousal unit was getting bored and wanted to be finished his job as a fashion photographer.
Love this sweater. Super comfy, the Kureyon softened up nicely, lots of bang for the proverbial buck. There’s enough Noro Yuzen in the basement to make up a Klaralund, which will hopefully be my next Noro project.
Oh! I almost forgot. We’ve been starting our kitchen renovations. Last week Mr. B replaced the kitchen window. The new one opens! Luxury! Today when I got home he had started the dismantling of the cupboards:
See the new window? So clear and not fogged up! It was freezing the other night, didn’t matter. We had the baby opened and closed and opened and closed at least 50 times. Just for the fun of it. Summer will be so much more tolerable this year!
Anyway, distracted, the cool thing? Mr. B found this in the space above the cupboards:
A Vancouver Sun from August 11, 1976. It’s brilliant. I’m going to sit down and read through it tonight. So, I guess the last time our kitchen got some loving it was summer 1976. Huh, I was 7 years old. I guess she’s probably due for a facelift!
Alright, time for me to get some reading done. Tonight’s feature – the public perception of the Canadian justice system and is it valid. Based on recent events, (gang shootings, taser enquiries, etc.), I’m guessing that the public perception is probably not the greatest right now.
