And it begins...

This is the blog of a craft-y, bookish, movie-watcher. Compelling, eh?

Currently, like about 2000 other people, I'm working on my Socks That Rock socks, in the Monsoon colorway. They're garter stitch short row heel/toe, with a ribbed foot and cabled cuff. I'm just now getting to the cuff part.

I really like the yarn. It's tightly spun, but not too tight, and knitting it on smaller needles than I'd usually use gives a nice thick fabric. Once I find my digital camera, I'll take a picture.

In between rows, I've been reading Dracula. Man, I love that book! The first time I read it, I thought it was horribly boring, but the second time I read it, I kept looking over my shoulder to make sure there wasn't a vampire waiting for a bite. Since then (1992?), I've read it about once or twice a year. Why did I read it again if it was garbage the first time? I figured that since it was a famous book, I ought to give it another try. Thank goodness I did!
