bridal wreath bush :: no-knead bread :: morning tea slice :: sunset :: mrs. bluebird taking a break
The most exciting yarn-y thing I've got going on at present is my dye batch, on my previous post (check it out!) but I am happy to have a little bit of down time today to knit up the land of the land agent mittens. I say the last because I knit a pair to start with that was not to my satisfaction, but I didn't know this until after they were blocked... and felted... so there was no going back with that yarn.
So I re-knit, and here I am. They were a project for a friend and I have poked around with them because it is spring, right? No time now for wearing mittens. It was 26F this morning, 57F inside the house because we didn't bother to turn on the heat. Julian has been selected to represent the natural sciences at a campus "raft debate" in one week, so he has asked me to spend the day watching all the recorded raft debates the internet has to offer, from start to finish. I think I can handle that task, my dear!
I've been doing my house chores along with Marilynne Robinson's Lila and I like the book but it seems to have this author's characteristic way of not really telling a story with a standard plot but rather the main character's emotional arc. I'm only a little less than half way through and it seems this poor girl Lila is living life two steps forward, three steps back...
