knittastic

The UPS man came while I was away working on the beast of burden otherwise known as my dissertation and it was like x-mas allover again. First he brought me my longed for perfect black boots. After literally years of looking, I finally located basic black boots that are weatherproof and skinny enough for my toothpick sized calves. Hurray for the Sudini Andover! He also brought me Georgia Warnke's Gadamer book, which I have wanted to read for forever and an amazing new knitting book: Sensual Knits by Yahaira Ferreira. It is Yummy! I love, love, love it. It just screams elegant and it has instructions for tiny sizes, which makes my narrow shoulders so happy.
Last week the UPS man brought me two of the new Harmony Guides, which were a wonderful gift from my sister-in-law and family. I have knits and purls, and cables and arans. They are so beautiful. I would love to use some of the patterns to make little baby blankets, but after the deluge of expectant mothers last year, it seems no one is reproducing at present. Come on ladies, those babies want some sisters and brothers!

So YOU'RE the reason I can barely zip up boots over my manly calves! They're making them for you now! Now if only I could do something about my fat knees...
