Today is the day to get rid of all my old, outdated electronics. FREE! I am saying good-bye to my 17" Sony monitor...in it's day it was so state-of-the art. What a big piece of junk that is today, taking up space in my closet along with other out-of-date computers and monitors...cell phones that are big and clunky...printers. You name it, I've got it. What a great purge this will be...off to collect the JUNK!!!!

I am reading Elizabeth Zimmerman's - Knit Around. When I can to the chapter on the Pie Are Square Shawl, well naturally, I became fascinated by that technique. So guess what? I am knitting my version. Yesterday I went to my lys and perused the lovely fuzzies. The lace yarn that they featured seemed way too thin. There was a skein of Lorna's Laces, just one, and was the price really high. I didn't purchase it thinking I would have to buy 2 skeins to finish my project. Well....after I got home and did some math calculations, I would have been fine with the yardage in that one skein. I did purchase some lovely yarn that is working out lovely. [less yardage and about the same $ as the Lorna's Laces]. Oh well, next time.
I became confused with the "ridges" versus "rows". I have made a boo-boo at the very beginning and refused to rip it out. So, I am actually missing 6 rows in the second increase. I really hope that it doesn't matter - it really won't be true to the concept. We shall see as time goes by.

Knitting Around...by Elizabeth Zimmerman and her daughter Meg.
I am staying up late, and I mean late...3AM reading a chapter a night and imagining my next project and how to incorporate some of those marvelous techniques into it. Elizabeth was such a talent...drawing, painting and knitting. The digressions in the chapters are so special - I feel like I am reading her diary!

An entire morning wasted...trying so hard to put music on my web page. I have exhausted the help of the internet, most of those sites are so out of date. Haven't even picked up the kneedles yet today because so much frustration and obsession with this music thing.
I will try again tomorrow, maybe.

I have been making socks, and socks, and socks. This pair turned out with hardly any problems.
I can't wait until the weather turns cold enough to wear them. For now, they are neatly folded up in the drawer with the rest of them...
