But don’t worry, I’ll have something to talk about in the near future!Â The Scottsdale Knitting and FiberÂ Show is coming up a week from this Saturday.Â Then the following weekend, my hubby and are going to head up to San Francisco for a long weekend.Â I won’t get the chance to hook up with any of my knitting pals (sorry guys!), but I am planning to stop by and say hi to some of my old co-workersÂ – not that the co-workers are old, just that I haven’t seen them in a while.Â (For those of you at GGU reading this, you’re the first to know!)
In another attempt to be less boring, I actually got out my wheel last night and did some spinning.Â And last weekend I met up with Eva to check out Tempe Yarn and Fiber.Â They’re a new shop, so they’re still a little light on inventory, of course.Â But they had some nice fibers, so I’m sure I’ll be visiting them frequently.Â By the way, Eva is a true friend.Â I showed her my Cyd vest in progress to see if she thought I need to rip out and start over on larger needles or if I could continue on in my state of denial.Â She knew which answer I wanted, but she was honest… and ripping out it will be.
Speaking of good friends, which I think all of you are,Â I need some book recommendations.Â I’m often not able to knit on the bus (crappy seat, need different needles, etc.) and so I always have a book with me.Â Well, I’m finished with all of my available books (I have plenty packed away around here, but by the time I dig them up we’ll have finally found a house and I would just need to re-pack them all again in order to move) and so I’m going to the library to check some out this weekend.Â Unfortunately, if I don’t have an idea of what I want, I just kind of wander aimlessly and IÂ either end up leaving with nothing or someÂ sort of fluff novels.Â Â So I want to go in with a list of books to look for.Â I’ve decided it’s time I finally read Lord of the Flies (I know, I know).Â What other books would you guys recommend?
