The good: I'm knitting a hat for Elise, using the Plaits and Pines pattern. I haven't knit cables for ages, and I love them. Book, knitting cat. Pretty much sums up my life The bad: I'm reading The Book of Forbidden Wisdom and it's awful. The characters are useless, there is a lot of thinking by the main character, their actions never match thier skills sets and her sister has one word in italics in every sentence she speaks . And it's always the last word. But I'm two thirds of the way through, and maybe at some point they will explain about the book. Although I'm not holding my breath. Still, I'm no quitter. As usual, I'm joining in with Ginny over at Small Thing s. Pop over and see what she, and the rest of the yarnalongers are up to this week.
