Oy. Computer problems kept me from blogging last week. Knitting problems are keeping me from finishing the cabled headband I’m working on. I’m fighting a loosing battle over here. I’ve knit and unknit about 3 times so far and still haven’t been able to work out the final 3 rows of ribbing on the headband. Talk about frustrating. Last night I just gave up (for the night) mid row and I’m hoping to get back to it today. But I will say I’ve gotten better at “reading” my knitting and have made some improvements. Just haven’t been able to figure out how to make the whole thing work. Good heavens, it’s only 3 rows of 32 stitches across. It’s driving me nuts!
I did finish some reading this week though. The Telling by Beverly Lewis was rather predictable but a nice story all the same. I’m trying to finish up Spark Joy (it’s due back to the library soon.) For the most part I’m enjoying it and getting some good ideas and inspiration. But I have to say, Marie Kondo lives in a totally different world than I do. She advises getting rid of basically all your books (HA! as if that’s gonna happen!) and arranging your undies from lightest to darkest, so that when you open the drawer it’s like looking at a box of chocolates! Umm, sorry if this is TMI but my undies are totally utilitarian and I don’t think could ever resemble a box of chocolates. Not that I’m not thankful for their usefulness and service but come on. I’m just getting to the section on the kitchen so hopefully there will be some good ideas there. (Maybe a suggestion to have some actual chocolates on hand, now that’s something I could get totally down with.)
Happy Wednesday! Happy Yarn Along!
