Janet's thread

A weblog, mostly about knitting but other topics appear

Scarves Galore January 24, 2015

IMG_5306   my latest scarves, let us call these the brown. green, and white sequence, scarves 13, 14, 15

the prior sequence could be labelled the Seahawk Sequence in blue, green and white   IMG_5345      scarves 10, 11, 12     Both sequences were knit lengthwise on size 4 needles.

 

Just for review – Scarves 1 -9   IMG_5346   These scarves are knit crosswise

 

Meanwhile our cat Katerina continues to pursue her mischievous ways.     She is especially fond of pens and pencils.   And she is developing a taste for birds.                                                                                                                                                                                                         IMG_5288            IMG_5336            IMG_5340  sad

When I knit I can also read.  Today I finished reading a very good book.    IMG_5328  A Star for Mrs. Blake, by April Smith.  This portrayed a little known aspect of World War I.  This is sort of a footnote to history and reflects careful research.  It is written with great sympathy and understanding.  Gentle is a term I would apply to it.  The author handles her characters delicately and yet honestly.  5 stars.

 

I can knit and watch television also.  I’m getting ready for the Super Bowl on February 1st.  This T-shirt arrived in the mail today.  IMG_5326     GO SEAHAWKS     Seattle’s great football team.  (American football that is – not to be confused with football in Europe and elsewhere in the world)

    Well since the Packers lost, I guess I can cheer for the Seahawks. I’m putting that book on my list.

    All fans welcome. Want to knit something in the Seahawk colors? The team is leaving for Arizona this morning – big sendoff. Seattle is abuzz.
