Not much new here. I'm on the home stretch for my ProCert submission, which is due at the end of the month. I have many things I'd like to do, but I'm putting them off until the ProCert is complete. A few things I'm looking forward to having time to do:
:: fix the fingerless gloves I'm knitting for Joe
:: play around with the iPad and figure out how to use the Plickers app
:: clear off my sewing/craft desk so I can work on creative things
:: bake cookies (seriously, sometimes it's the little things)
- Lasher by Anne Rice
- On Bicycles by Amy Walker - a collection of essays about bike culture organized into four parts: reasons for biking, a how-to involving the different types of gear, bicycle community, and working toward creating a more bike-friendly culture.
- The Rain by Virginia Bergin - a YA novel that my school's librarian recommended for me. This has been my bus read this month, and I'm definitely enjoying it so far (although it is a dystopia that involves a killer disease transported by the rain, and I live in Seattle...)
On the Needles
I've started a hat for Joe that is a version of the ear-flap garter stitch hat I knit for the kids. The version I knit for the kids has a somewhat pointy top with a small pom. Joe wanted a more 'normal' round top, so I'm improvising. This is a rather mindless knit that's perfect for bus rides.
Looking Forward To
- being finished with my ProCert entry - this has been one very long process!
