Marjorie invited me to her home and the August get-together with Siow Chin, Joy, and Eva, with Vivian and her sister. I got to pore over a huge stash of new magazines and books (this one, too) as well as knit and admire everyone else's projects. (Got to get me some of that Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud ....) Thank you all -- mm-goi saai!
It had stopped raining when I got home, and was a surprisingly quiet afternoon, grey and still. Julia had actually gone to bed for a nap on her own, and Laura was watching cartoons with the babysitter, so I made myself a cup of tea and read for a while.
Well -- I've recently joined two knit-alongs, one with a finite completetion date, so I'd better get cracking,
and the other, blissfully open-ended,
I have at least one, possibly two, baby projects in the planning stages -- am thinking of a certain wrap-style jacket from an old Knitter's magazine. I have some Rowan cotton in a pretty girly purple from a completely stalled Debbie Bliss project (which would be better in a yarn that actually worked up to the right gauge, eh?), so I'll start swatching when we get home.
