Slippery Sock is complete and I’ve started on the second. I love the cables and the way the colors really pop.
Mr. Iknead got me a new Ipod for Mother’s Day, the newest model with 160 gigs. I decided yesterday to knit a cozy for it, I’d like to keep it looking shiny and new as long as I can. I decided on Doggerell Designs Dragonskin Itouch Cover, which is a free Ravelry download. I’m not clear on the ins and outs of copyright infringement so I won’t post a photo, but it’s easy enough to check it out on Rav. Speaking of Ipods, this is my third one and am still convinced that it’s the best investment electronics-wise (is that even a word?) I’ve ever made. I keep mine going on the average of seven hours a day during the week, usually listening to audiobooks and music when I work out. I’m reading/listening to an intriguing book at the moment, The Boy With the Cuckoo Clock Heart, by Mathias Malzieu. It’s quirky and offbeat, two things I look for in books and now that I think about it, pretty much everything else. The more oddball and eccentric, the better I like it.
I’ve been playing around with the idea of another blog and have just about decided to go for it, posting on Saturdays about things that interest me and grab my attention, freestyling I suppose you’d call it. This idea is sounding better and better. What am I waiting for?
The best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen, not touched, but are felt in the heart. Helen Keller (1880-1968)
