You gotta love the 1/2 Price Book Store . For a little over 1/2 the retail price of the Quick Knits: Cool Projects I got both books. I love knitting capelets and shawls so Viva Poncho will give me some great ideas. Transforming a poncho into a capelet or a shawl will be what I would probably be doing, tho’ there are some capelets in the book :). I like my capelets to open in the front and that is something I will change when I knit them.
Should be fun. As soon as I finish my grand daughter’s afghan and find some time, I might start something from one of those books. I have some more patterns finished on the afghan and will get a picture sometime this week to post so that you can see that it is coming along. My goodness I have to be very careful when knitting certain rows of the lace because it’s easy to lose track of where you are and I have to tink back to figure out where I made a mistake. So I can only knit on it when I am not in jepardy of being constantly distracted, like babysitting with the grand children :P.
I love my new job, and tho it is very busy I don’t feel stressed out, rushed maybe, but not stressed. Liking what you do helps alot. 🙂 It’s a lot of detail work and that is what I am good at and enjoy. I always thought I would have made a good research scientist because I love Science (it was my best subject followed by English), I notice small details and am terribly curious (much to the annoyance of others :P), however math is not one of my better subjects, so I didn’t pursue it. I use my talents as I find a place for them and they can make life interesting, to me, but not always to others 🙂 .
We have had a lot of rain and thunderstorms this last week, tho’ no tornadoes like other parts of the midwest. Hope all my friends in the other parts of the midwest are safe and sound. Looks like the weather for at least the next week here is going to be rain free and after tonight (which will be close to, but not quite, freezing, sigh) it will warm up into the middle 60’s to lower 70’s in the day and middle 40’s to lower 50’s at night. Hope the 3 or 4 little plants in my garden will be all right tonight. The others are seeds that should come up soon. At least it isn’t snowing ;P.
