Cool knitting stuff
Headed off to the public library today on my brand-spanking new rollerblades (soo much fun, I've been rollerblading every day since the weather got nice) and picked up the following:bear

  • Knitting from Start to Finishing, a how-to video I'm going to show at Knit Wits, my college's knitting club, next week,

  • No Idle Hands: A Social History of American Knitting, by Anne L. Macdonald. I happened to see it randomly on the shelf. It's a pretty hefty book, and I don't really have time, what with all my school reading, but I'm going to read it anyway. It's 'specially interesting for me 'cause I'm a History specialist. I'll post the verdict on the historiography once I've read it.

  • Teddy Bears, by Debbie Bliss. I love her designs, and these teddy bears are too cool for words. There's even a rugby bear! But my favourite is the aviator bear, complete with goggles, scarf, and faux shearling jacket.

This should be sufficient to increase my procrastination stretch well into next week. Why write essays on Quebec historians and 20th-century Baltic history when I could be knitting? Or reading about knitting? Or blogging about knitting? Ha!
