No More Red
With all my red colored projects almost behind me, I think it will be a little while before I pick up any red yarn or fabric.
Reading, Sewing and Knitting
Today’s blog entry is jam-packed with lots of activity and still nothing short of boring.
Just finished my latest leisure reading and I was again underwhelmed.
I know P.D. James is a very well-loved and much-read author, but I’m not so crazy about her books. The only reason I read this last one was that it was shrink-wrapped on my bookshelf, so I knew I hadn’t read it already.
Original Sin by P.D. James is another one in her Adam Dalgliesh series (how DO you pronounce that character’s last name?). Like the others I have read in the past, this one was an enjoyable read and was competently written, but just had no excitement or extra anything that made it worth recommending.
I couldn’t get Thaddeus to model these for the camera, but I figured I should at least show a picture of the red boxers I made for him.
Overall, this garment was a good first garment to test my sewing pattern reading capabilities.
I almost finished the pullover vest in Rowan Felted Tweed. Actually, I should say I DID finish it, but then didn’t like the armhole edging, so I’m re-doing that part and re-sewing the side seams.
I was hoping to show a picture or two of me wearing this sweater, but it looked silly with open side seams.
