Adventures in Knitting…
Every Wednesday night, a few of us ol’ ladies gather for our weekly “Stich’n’B$%#ch”. I’m currently working on an afghan…same one I was working on last year…and judging by the lack of progress, I must be doing more bitchin’ than stitchin’. We all know I can’t do 2 things at once.
A few weeks back, Glenys gave each of us a skein of beautiful wool that she had spun herself. Not having any needles of an appropriate size, I’ve put off starting a project with that wool. Today, I was in a stationary store on an un-related errand, and my eye caught a bag of knitting needles collecting dust on a shelf. I picked the two straightest ones, and added them to my other items. After paying for everything, I did some quick calculations, and discovered I had just paid a whopping $0.30 for a pair of knitting needles. I don’t know what they usually go for, but I think that this pair was a bargain. Here’s hoping they’ll last the 8 years it will take me to finish the scarf.
In other news, nobody around here seems too concerned about North Korea’s latest brouhaha. From what I can see from this persepective, CNN seems more concerned than anybody else.
