This week I'm:
READING (because a sweater in mainly stockinette stitch requires one to read while knitting just in order to keep one's sanity)
… brushing up on how to split my hive when the time comes
… and a yummy new book Adventures in Yarn Farming
LISTENING (because when you're on the part of the sweater that requires you to pay a bit more attention you have to stop reading and, well, pay more attention)
… to Elliot and his band-mates give a live interview on the radio
… and re-reading To Kill A Mockingbird but this time on audio book because hearing Sissy Spacek narrate Scout's thoughts in that southern drawl is just perfect – "Scout, I'm telling you for the last time, shut your trap or go home - I declare to the Lord you're gettin' more like a girl every day!” With that, I had no option but to join them.
P.S. Elliot's band has made it into the regional finals! Thanks so much to everyone that voted! This next round is a big one – nationals. Eek! If you could keep voting daily we'd greatly appreciate it. You can vote once per day until Sunday at three o'clock.
