Ahh, spring break. Not so much spring-like, but I'm enjoying a bit of chill. Better than getting to nearly 80 again. 65-70 is ideal, but 80 is just too freaking hot. Especially when the pools aren't open... Anyway, it is sooo nice to do nothing. Of course it's nearly over, have to go back Tuesday. So what have I been doing with my time?

That pretty much sums it up. I started a new scarf, Ruffles from Scarf Style using some of the yarn my SP got me. I had to buy a couple extra skeins, but no biggy. And yes, I am a bit behind on the trends, but are you really surprised? Considering I put my clapotis to the side AGAIN to work on this... I've been listening to my podcasts while knitting, especially when Jaime's watching crappy tv. LOVE LOVE LOVE my podcasts. I added all the ones I listen to to my sidebar (except Knitcast which bloglines doesn't see...) so check them out.

I've also been reading a book from the library, Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton. It's not amazing literature, but I'm enjoying it.

And finally you'll note some spinning. After months and months of not spinning I finally got up the courage to pick it back up. It was one of those things where I got really frustrated with it so didn't want to do it, and then when I was ready to try again I figured I'd forgotten everything. So guess my surprise when I went back to it a day or two ago and it went really really well. I don't really know what the difference is, but it's coming much easier to me now. Ok, so admittedly I still can't let it spin and draft at the same time, I spin it then stick it between my feet and draft, but I'm still making progress. I'm even hoping I might be able to knit something from this eventually. Something kinda funky and uneven, like the yarn, but something none the less.
