@KnittyOrNice! A big hello to @GettingPurly, who also knit up a gorgeous version of my Hilde hat! Check it out on her blog, http://gettingpurlywithit.wordpress.com
Not only does she knit up the cutest fingerless mitts, and hats, offer helpful tutorials, but her posts burst with inspiration! And if you're a sucker for flowers photos, like me... look no further ;-)
This aftersnooze, I finished Ishbel! Blocked it properly, pins on the bed (though Dennis wasn't super crazy about this) But hey, my shawl has little pointy edges now, as it should!
Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris. I've seen the first season of the HBO version, True Blood, which more or less stays true to the original storyline. But to be honest, I like the book better. Maybe because I'm listening to the story all in one sitting, the narrator is excellent, and yes, there are some risque bits-- but mostly because there aren't all these sub-plots you have to worry about. I still have to see the 2nd season... so I'm not totally knocking it, yet. But if you're in the market for some ear candy... check it out!
