Nice day to stay at home and knit . . .

So I am. I am up to the basket weave portion of the bodice in my "Back to School" vest and I've gone out and bought fabric for a matching skirt. We'll see how that goes. I don't mind sewing but it just means . . . less knitting!

With my digital camera still in the middle of either a mid-life crisis or a death march, the photos of my Saturday Seven barely turned out. Basically, I weeded out the DVD shelves. I never liked the movie "Antz" - those ants are all way too sassy for my four year old - and the others are DVDs that just needed to live elsewhere. A friend told me about sending them overseas to military personnel - I find it hard to imagine how many of those guys are "Men who Knit" but perhaps someone is looking for a new hobby?

On a fun note, my copy of Crazy Aunt Purl's "Drunk, Divorced, and Covered in Cat Hair: The True-Life Misadventures of a 30-Something Who Learned to Knit After He Split" arrived today. She will be visiting the Twin Cities on her signing tour and I will be there! I really enjoy when people take something like knitting and use it to change their lives. It just makes change seem more possible. After all, taking up marathon running or ballroom dancing to change your life seems . . . too much like work. Knitting is one step away from taking a nap on the couch. It's nice to know it can shape your future. I wonder what the unfinished Poor Pink Sock will say about my life?
