www.crazymomquilts.blogspot.com and her book is an absolute winner. There is not a single ho-hum quilt in it! It has been a bright spot in an otherwise most grey mundane day!
www.kathysfibres.com I have wanted to knit this pattern for as long as I can remember. I think Elizabeth Zimmermann patterns are almost like a knitters rite of passage. I am not a very "technical" knitter so I have appreciated the BSJ knit-a-long on ravelry. These are my favourite wooden needles AND my favourite 4 ply wool from Kathy so it is mindless, peaceful, soothing knitting. On a day like today, with my big girl home with a cough (but not sick enough to not give me a hard time!) and horrible door-knockers, and guilt sewing - inserting a zip and finishing Mr Snake for childcare, and car troubles, and a grey, rainy sky knitting and browsing beautiful books seems like just the right thing to do!
Hope you aren't suffering Monday-itis!
