The Librarian


Just finished the last row of my Pogona with about four centimetres of yarn to spare ... this is how knitters live dangerously! (Many a poor soul has been reduced to sobs by running out of yarn with only two or three stitches left to go) Now just have to psyche myself up for the really looooonnnngggg, sllllooooowwwww bind-off ... have to do it with a crochet hook since there's no yarn left for a bind-off row (planned to do it this way for minimum waste of the merino/cashmere snuggliness)

New (to me) music

Just heard First Aid Kit's "The Lion's Roar" played on CKUA ... another CD to seek out and add to my collection (I adore unusual instrumentations and rhythms and voices that are "raw" and harmonize by their differences instead of samenesses ... perfect-trained "angelic" vocals are like fingernails on a blackboard to my ears)
