I was alternating knitting and grading when the debate started, but it quickly derailed both efforts. I can't not listen, I can't listen without clenching up my hands, and I certainly can't listen and grade at the same time. Donald Trump may have stolen a chunk of my peace of mind, but BY GOLLY I will not allow him to disturb my gauge.
Have you noticed that I'm having a little knitting ADD lately? I keep showing you new things and not mentioning that I haven't finished the stuff I showed you last time. Maybe I'll do something about that between now and next week, but for tonight, look-- something shiny!
This is the new Westknits MKAL, which I am working in sportweight Wool of the Andes. I'm still on the week 1 clue, but maybe I'll catch up by Friday, maybe. Or, you know, next Friday. Like other Westknits patterns, it's fun to knit and a little funkier than my usual taste.
I have a chunk of Passage left, because it's 800 pages long. Stella and I started The Hobbit this week, and we're just about to leave Rivendell for the Misty Mountains.
There are no politicians in the Misty Mountains, only goblins. Sounds like a pretty good place to be about now, doesn't it?
As always, there are lots more Yarn Along posts at Ginny's.
