I Never Thought…

… I’d want a knitted kerchief, but I’ve surprised myself. That sample I was knitting up for my LYS? I liked it so much that I’m now knitting one for myself. The pattern is from Classic Elite’s Johns Bay. I’m knitting mine in some dishcloth cotton I had lying around, so it’s not as soft as the sample I knit up (love that cotton/rayon/silk blend!), but it will be nice to keep in the car for beach walks on windy days. My favorite beach is right at the northern tip of the Monterey Bay, so it gets much blusterier (is that a word?) weather than Santa Cruz, even though it’s relatively nearby.

Melissa and I have been nurturing our inner nerds lately and enjoying some of the material available from The Teaching Company. (Their prices seem high at first, until you realize that you should never, ever buy anything at full price, since it all goes on sale on a regular basis.) When we’re together in the evenings, we listen to a segment or two from Terror of History: Mystics, Heretics, and Witches in the Western Tradition. When we’re apart, I’m entertaining myself with Science and Religion. The material is so interesting it’s even got me turning off the tv—except for my Monday night, must-have House fix.

  1. We are deep into The History of Ancient Egypt – half hour lectures – which we listen to in the car whenever we have to negotiate the LA Basin. It definitely keeps the blood pressure down as you creep along in clogged up traffic!
