I am so close to having these done! All I need is a couple of hours of knitting time without distraction. Those braids and fingers require just a little more concentration than I can muster up with the wild ones stampeding through the room.
I really want these done. They're the most ambitious thing I've cast on in forever, and they're coming out the way they should. And the weather has been so wickedly cold that I want to wear them the next time I leave the house.
This week's book has been The Cat, The Quilt and The Corpse, first in the Cats in Trouble mystery series. I don't think I'm enough of a cat person to really appreciate this one. The main character earns her living making cat quilts, but except for some of her quilts, not to mention her stolen cat, turning up in the victim's house, there's no vicarious quilting to be had here. There is a lot of detail about her cats.
