emilly: stop being sad & be awesome instead (awesome)
i can't remember what i had actually meant to post to dw this evening, so in lieu:

OVERHEARD IN MY KITCHEN
"Don't turn around! I'm taking off my pants!"
emilly: (Default)
I had things to discuss about
  • knitting
  • reading
  • television and
  • movies
a bulleted list! also known as "what i did on my summer holidays"

Apparently I had some kind of mental break and spent all of my christmas money on northern european traditional mitten knitting books. Last week I received Mostly Mittens, on Komi (Russian) patterns, yesterday Folk Knitting of Estonia; and today Selbuvotter, on the two colour norwegian type mittens, which i don't even remember buying. oops. AND YET. the only pattern i want to knit is Shetlanders, admittedly a mitten pattern, but on a way larger gauge than anything in the books. I love it to pieces and I can't believe only six people have picked it up on Ravelry.

In other news, I read a grand total of THREE NOVELS MY GOD this january. Possibly because I spent most of the time watching tv and knitting. And Trisha and Clare keep lending me more dvds -- and I have sixty more knitting patterns than I had last week -- so i doubt feb will be any more impressive.

Midnight never comes: the Queen of England makes a deal with a Faerie Queen; things go wrong (how could it possibly?!); our heroes save england.
Devilish: (re-read)A high school girl makes a deal with a demon; things go wrong (how could it possibly?!); our hero saves her friend (hmm a theme).
Raisins and Almonds: (re-read) a phryne fisher novel to read one hot afternoon.
So none of these novels were really that great. Hopefully the next books I read are more worth it.
