Hello World!

Remember when we used to write little BASIC programs that displayed "Hello World"? Oh well - that probably dates me. This is a brand new blog - it will be mostly about knitting and some about life and family and vegan food and outdoorsy stuff and biking, Cub Scouting, and what I'm reading, but mostly about knitting. Which is what I'm mostly doing.

I just finished reading two of Jon Krakauer's books - Into the Wild - the tragic story of Chris McCandless and Into Thin Air - the tragic story of the 1996 disaster on Mt. Everest. Lest you think I only read tragic stories - I do like to read non-fiction and I like outdoor, sort of adventure stories but I've had enough tragedy for a while and right now I'm reading two hilarious books by Laurie Notaro - The Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club and the Autobiography of a Fat Bride. These are really funny.

It's funny how my knitting projects are divided by when and where I work on them. Socks always go to Tae Kwon Do class and I knit them while the Man-Cub has his class. I'm currently working on a sweatshirt for said Man-Cub which only goes to the library and the park on Saturdays. Then I have a perpetual - use up leftover yarn project - which I only work on in the big room while watching TV. It's really too big to be portable - though I might consider boxing it up and taking it on a long car trip, as it's a pretty mindless knit.

Right now I'm knitting more socks for winter - which is fast approaching.

So there's my first post. Bienvenue a mon monde!
