If you are in the Saskatoon area, you might be interested to know that we have a book sale on at Periwinkle until the end of the year. It is buy one book and get a second one of equal or lesser value at half-price.
as you can see, from my little shelf here, you can never have too many books.
also, because we seem to have a LOT of books in stock at the shop, and it would be nice to have fewer to count for year-end inventory.
I've been doing more knitting than sewing! I guess I'm just thinking about what I want to sew next. It seems hard lately to just jump into new projects, or to "play". Lately I've been thinking about that whole concept. Why is it harder to sit down and work on something without having a particular end object as a goal?
Anyway, this lacy rectangle you see here is going to be sewn up at the ends to make a tube. It is a sort of neck cowl to wear like a scarf. It is wide enough to pull up over your head like a hat. The yarn is half silk and half mohair, i think, so it is pretty supple. Also it seemed to stretch quite a bit when I washed it and laid it out to dry, so it will be interesting to see how it works,,,, the holes got quite a bit bigger in the lace pattern.
Hope that you keep toasty warm today!
