Finch and I go to the library at least once a week and I just love ordering books into my own branch. The Toronto Public Library system is one of the most used library systems in the world... is that right? I am sure I read that someplace...You can get almost anything. So my latest request was this bo0k which I had noticed while leafing through a years worth of quilting magazines from my lovely friend up the street.
I loved looking though the book at lunchtime, though I wanted more more more color pictures of all the gorgeous quilts and sweaters and paintings. It is an autobiography so there were lots of words obviously, and the ones I managed to read were very interesting- what a life! I will just have to order in more of his books. Still, I had to immediately do some drawing and of course Finch has to do whatever I am doing and we had a lovely 12-16 minutes on the porch partaking in this. Nothing lasts long with a three year old.
Hooray here they are all done, and just in time for a chilly spell. I love them so much! Cozy and colourful. I am just thrilled though, with the way the new pair are coming out. How did they ever figure out how to die yarn so it makes a lovely stripey ziggy pattern when knitted up? Will wonders never cease... It has been nice to do a bit of knitting again, mostly when Finch watches tv or plays in the sandbox.
