I just realized I haven't written a blog post in a month; I am definitely a better crafter than blogger! I'm always impressed by the "real" bloggers who come up with great written pieces daily or weekly. I guess I do have my priorities straight, since the time I'm too lazy to blog is time I spend knitting and designing ferociously... often while watching Netflix, which makes working feel like hanging out. I like to get into TV shows they have for streaming. Since last summer, I've knit my way through four American shows:
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer (2nd time)
- Angel (2nd time)
- The Wire (with my husband)
- Bones (beginning to present)
And three BBC shows:
- A Touch of Frost
- Wire in the Blood
- Waking the Dead (current)
I have a real thing for British crime dramas, having been raised on PBS's Mystery. It's a lot of TV, but then, it's a lot of knitting - I've accomplished so much in recent months! Last fall and winter were even more successful than I'd hoped; I'm already working on my stock of wool hats and gloves for next fall, while enjoying the spring sunlight.
The sari silk yarn worked up beautifully, by the way, and I love the finished vest. The pattern is on Etsy and on Ravelry as "Sari Silk Garter Stitch Vest," so have a look!
