OK, I don't really have anything to blog about, but how could I miss posting on a numerically interesting date??? I love numerically interesting dates, and often even look forward to them. Though today's sort of snuck up on me, as I am still not quite back in sync with the universe.
Today was the new president's first day at work. He called a meeting first thing, and there were snacks which was a nice touch. I hope he turns out to be a good guy for the Academy; the guy who has been the acting president is a tough act to follow, though.
I am intrigued by the new book coming out called Modern Top Down Knitting, as I have decided that I need to try to knit a few pieces done that way. A few weeks ago, Andrea finished a cardigan she had designed herself that was knit top-down, and it was fabulous. Given my finishing skills (and I use that term loosely in relation to myself), I think it's worth a try to do something with minimum amount of finishing involved ... I have been poking around to see what I already have, but I'll definitely want to take a look at this new book when it shows up at Rosie's.
However, if I could get only one new book, it would be New England Knits. I have looked through it several times already, and asked The Tim to get it for me for Christmas. (It's times like this I wish I had a fall birthday ...)
Anyway, I am knitting along on things. I've nearly finished putting the Pickle sweater together (yeah don't die of shock there), and have started a blanket for a shelter animal, as well as made it to the second of the pair of socks I'm knitting. I would show you a picture but at the moment, I can't get the image thing to work, so that can/will have to be another post.
OK, enough blathering simply because it's 8-9-10. I hope yours is/was a good one. I am not posting a Ten on Tuesday tomorrow, since this week's topic is 10 Reasons Why I Love Bacon. Not much to say about that because a) I'm a vegetarian, and b), even before I was, I'm not sure I would have had 10 things to say about bacon ...
Jetsam says hello, by the way. :-)
