A Plethora of Knowledge
More fun stuff in the mail yesterday! Not Ramius, the book he's modeling with. Its Barbara G. Walker's A Treasury of Knitting Patterns. This is the first book, there are four total. There are about 500 different stitch patterns and its just wonderful! I am constantly amazed at how much you can do with just two stitches (knit and purl) and the yarn over. You can see the excitement on Ramius' face that he feels at just being in the presence of such a collection. I will definitely be getting the other three books in the future. Just in case you're wondering, Ramius is sitting in his Kitty Pi that I made for him last Fall. Its done in Lamb's Pride Bulky in Chianti and Onyx. Its a nice warm kitty bed on a day like today. Its been snowing here since this morning when we woke up, we could get 8 inches or so by the time it quits later tonight, so its definitely a day for cuddling up in warm places. I've got a pot roast cooking for dinner and so the whole house smells cozy and yummy. I've been knitting on the black cardie and done a little more on the Peacock Shawl. I'll probably start spinning something again soon. Today looks great for spinning. Hope you all stay warm wherever you are.
