Knitting :: Still working on my Springtime Boneyard (Rav link) and my Maeva Socks (Rav link). I’m much further into the shawl, and I’ve made it to the heel of the first sock. I’m struggling with the gusset decreases, though, so I need to set aside a bit of time to look carefully at the pattern and some of the notes on Ravelry.
Aren’t the little star stitch markers adorable? They’re from a set of stitch markers I won as a prize in the Ravellenics. The set is Doctor Who themed from Owl Print Panda on Etsy and I love them!
Reading :: Traplines by Eden Robinson. This is a rather sad short story collection that I’m reading for a Canadian Lit course. The writing in this is very good, it’s just a little darker than most of what I read.
Still making my way through The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. I will eventually finish this and stop telling you about how much I’m enjoying it. I promise.
Drinking :: Coffee with homemade vanilla syrup. I love vanilla in coffee and tea, so I made up a batch of syrup like they use in coffee shops. It’s really simple… I can share the recipe later this week if there’s any interest?
Watching :: The Great British Sewing Bee. My friend G recommended this and even though I’ve only seen 2 episodes, I love it. It’s a show entirely about people making nice things. It makes me want to buy a sewing machine.
