Just a little post.......

Happy Thursday everyone, or as they say at The Pod, Happy "Thrusday". It's the traditional time to make those 4-page posts that get the hair up on the back of your neck with topics  like abortion, politics, and why you should never wear yoga pants in public.
Not knitting related, but thanks to my cyber-friend Jessica from The 24 Year Age Gap, I've started reading Harry Potter. I had to find out what the fuss was about (only a little late to this party). Well, Jessica, you have me hooked! I haven't actually read them - I saw The Philosopher's Stone and then checked out the audio (unabridged) version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
The thing, if you haven't done it yet - is to knit while you listen to audio books! It's even more fun if you listen to those cheesy knitting novels. like The Friday Night Knitting Club, or my absolute favorites, the "Blossom Street' series by Debbie Macomber. They're overly sentimental, purply prose and a blot upon the literary world, but I love them. A Good Yarn is my favorites because of the emphasis shop owner Lydia Hoffman places on the "newest trend": toe-up socks knitted on two circulars!
Speaking of toe-up socks, I checked out some goodies from the library: Toe-Up 2-at-a-time Socks by Melissa Morgan-Oakes and Things I learned from Knitting...whether I wanted to or Not by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Great little pearls of wisdom, if you pardon the pun. I think it is a book to be owned - I'll have to go  check Amazon. Until then, thanks for reading and happy knitting!
