Lazy Weekend

I spent a good part of Saturday in front of the TV, knitting on my sock. I came across two movies on IFC. The first was Ikiru and the other Umberto D.. Both were made in 1952, black & white, about lonely old men. They were both also sub titled. I found out that I could knit and know just when to look up for the conversation. I highly recommend both films.

I received a shipment from Knit Picks today. Friday or Saturday I received an email from Knit Picks that something on my wish list was in stock. I plan on making some baby caps from some of it. So... you know how it goes. I just had to add more to my cart. Two skeins of EssentialSolid in coral on sale. Then two books jumped in. 2-at-a-time Socks and Start Spinning. Carol had purchased both of these books and I really liked the book on spinning. Great pictures and breaks down the whole spinning process. I also added in a 24" Harmony Size 1 circular.

I am at the heel flap now of my 9 to 5 sock and should turn the heel tonight.

I will leave you with a video of Stanley. Please pay no mind to my kitty talk but that is what makes him do his antics. He was staring at this birdbath. Last year it was his favorite spot to spend a weekend morning. No sooner had I cleaned it out he took it over.



So I am going to leave you now and look through both books.

haha...wriggly cat! I love new books and knitting two socks at once is something i am eager to practice. As for spinning, well I am sick to do it, but we don't have enough space here for another hobby and I must use up my stash before I indulge anyway...
