The Weekend

Whew, what a weekend. I did get to knit, package things to mail, and to read. I also went to downtown Littleton’s Christmas party, which was nice, because guess where the LYS is. :-) I also got rid of a few more things-

5- 2 curtain rods;
6- An old broken fan;
7- A lamp that I moved for no reason;
8- 2 old lighthouses that were damaged in the move
9- A bunch of old knitting needles that I do not use any more.
I better hurry if I want to get all 50 items out of here before January 1, but I am sure I can do it.

I read a new book by Monica Ferris this weekend also, Thai Die;
which was a pretty good book. One of her tenants returns from Thailand with an antique statue she carried for a man she met while visiting a silk factory. (This bothered me, because you have to wonder why someone would ask a person to carry a statue out of a foreign country, or am I just suspicious?) Anyway, this led to several murders and some excitement, with an interesting ending. I have to admit, this is one of the few books that I could not guess the ending and this made it more interesting to me.

The Big Ass Wrap is halfway done, I found a really cute shawl pin when I was at the LYS this weekend (pix tomorrow), but now I am trying to decide about some embroidery and beads for the ends of it. It will definitely need a little decoration. I am not thrilled with the color I picked out, but it will do. I was wondering how do the rest of you decide which project to work on when you have several going? I have two pairs of socks, 3 shawls and four hats working right now (plus a couple of sweater) and sometimes I get overwhelmed with what I need to finish.

I took another silly quiz that are so popular for filling blogs :-)What is an "anime"?
What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Literature Nerd
 

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It's okay. I understand.

Anime is the Japanese-style cartoon/animations. I can't stand the things, personally, but they are VERY popular (being half Korean, I tend to find Japan a little overrated, but that's just me! ;-)

When I have several wips going at once, I work first on deadline knitting and second on what's calling to me (sometimes in reverse order!).

Yep, Literature Nerd - but I prefer the term Geek.

Love the link to the Nerd test! and good for you on getting rid of so much - I won't tell my husband about it because I'm afraid he'd say "what a great idea!" and then I'd be forced to do it - it takes more guts than I have right now ;)

I seem to be a math/science nerd. Hmm...

I have many WIPS in progress right now. Some have been shoved on the back burner while the more pressing Christmas knits get done. I seem to be in a mitt rut. However it definitely more enjoyable now that I am knitting with my KP Harmony DPNs. Wow! I love these needles! They're my very first DPNs.
