Another week off is over, and in 12 hours I'll be back at work. Only 6 more shifts to go, though, until we leave for Hawai'i. One of those shifts will be the night of July 4th, which I expect to be typical for a holiday (read: hellishly busy). Before I traipse off to bed, though, I thought I'd share a couple of things.
On Friday, an expected package arrived for me in the mail. This was in it.
Of course, there's just one slight problem. I don't have Part One. I had thought that I was ordering Part One, but I guess that's what happens when you place orders in the wee hours of morning. At any rate, I realized the error before this arrived and promptly ordered Part One, as I feel that it will be, well, essential if I wish to actually use Part Two.
So, I can imagine that there are people who will read this and ask, "Why Sanskrit?" The answer to which, of course, is "Why not?" Actually, it's a language I've been interested in for a while - partly from several years of yoga classes and partly because it's a major liturgical language in both Hinduism and Buddhism. It's also a classic language, still used to some extent, and the basis for several languages which are spoken by many millions of people. Plus the Devanagari script is really neat-looking.
The other thing I have to show is this.
Remember this? I decided a few weeks ago to frog it. I was having some issues with the gauge, so I was knitting it too loosely to get the gauge where I thought it was supposed to be and the fabric just had no real structure to it. I actually have yet to rewind that particular ball, so while we were having a Friday night at the movies and watching Rear Window (Summer is when we watch Hitchcock films, says David), I pulled out another ball of the yarn, gauge swatched again, recalculated, and cast on anew.
It remains to be seen if I'll ever actually finish it, but the concept I still very much like. I need to go back and make sure that I won't need to rework the Fair Isle pattern I want to do on the front, actually knit up to the point where I want to do a Fair Isle pattern, etc.
Tonight I spun up some more of the Junior roving and nearly have a full bobbin of it, but I'm fading fast, so it's off to bed for me.
