i was informed yesterday that i am no longer an "addicted knitter"!!! no WAY! i went on a long drive on friday night...took one of my best friends and her children to cleveland so they could take a train to baltimore, where her husband works. cleveland is a 2.5 hour drive, and i waited with them for their train to arrive. by the time i got home it was 430am. one of my online knitting friends said, "well at least you had yarn with you, right?" wrongo. no yarn. no needles. not even a pattern to look at. so that's how i got taken off the list :-) however i think i may have redeemed myself, since i took my knitting to a baseball game last night. ended up not knitting, and for that matter, we didn't even watch the game. BUT! i got to show off those beautiful bamboo needles with the elephants that a friend of mine had made just for me, and one of my friends asked me to teach her to knit!
this dear friend of mine who i took to cleveland...she's 6 months pregnant, which means i have just a little bit of time to decide what to make for the baby! from the library i borrowed one of the barbara walker treasuries (which i LOVE -- i have to get all of 'em!), and as a book by barbara aytes called "adventures in knitting". both have lovely patterns that i can use to make a beautiful blanket or something. i want something that's easy but still interesting. this is such a difficult decision...i can't make everything at once!
now...back to the laundry, last week's "house, md" episode, and maybe a little more knitting on clapotis!
