And if I decide I don't like it au natural then I'll have a nice fresh base for a new shade o' six-block red!
Finished my Hitchhiker on Monday night and only have about four centimetres of that precious one-of-a-kind handspun yarn left over! Quite pleased with myself about that. I actually ran out of yarn two thirds of the way through the last row but thanks to a nifty crochet hook method I was able to leave that as is and bind it off without waste (any knitted bind-off would have required undoing the partial row and the full row before that and then using that yarn in the bind-off ... the crochet hook method doesn't eat any yarn). Photo soon!
And finally got my print edition of "Tracker" on Tuesday ... since I raced through the first reading of the ebook edition in what-happens-next! mode, I'll use this for my second, catch-all-the-details slow read. (I prefer reading the paper editions, but have found that the ebooks make a useful "index" ... with events and characters now spanning about twelve in-series years (and atevi years are longer than ours ***GRIN***) one has to sometimes look up people, places, politics, and associations to refresh one's memory and word-search is a wonderfully quick way to do that. :-)
But tonight I've pulled another volume off the to-read pile and started reading the fiction part of Needles and Artifice, which I've kept forgetting is a steampunk story as well as a pattern book and so kept putting it away in the bookcase with the other not-currently-in-use pattern books. Figured I'd better grab it next before I absentmindedly did that again. Three chapters in and 'tis great fun!
