On the needles: Technically, nothing. I finished up the t-shirt and longies that have appeared in this space, lo these many weeks. The gauge swatch for Spud’s gray and green Five Fruits sweater came out o.k., and with yarn and correct needles finally assembled in one place, I may be able to cast on this evening!
Off the bookshelf: An assortment . . . trying to plan the garden wisely this year with the help of Eliot Coleman and Binda Colebrook. My friend just gifted Spud with Ellison the Elephant and two other titles by the same author (they come with some of the best audio CDs I’ve heard). And, I’ve been reading some highly entertaining stories written by junior-highers as I do a little volunteer grading.
