I don't read much. I almost put that I don't read as much as I would like to, but honestly I don't really enjoy reading. It is what I do while I am waiting for something else to happen. I would, however, love to have the information already in my brain. That's the only thing that keeps me reading anything. A strong desire to not miss out.

The Laodice, while lovely, was not to be. The ever expanding section of stockinette stitch in the middle was boring me to tears and I was only 100 yards into it.
Here is the top I purchased at the North Idaho Spin In. It is BFL and [Tussah?] Silk, probably 70/30%. The colors in the first image are much more true than the second.I am spinning it in very small batches on a student spindle (somehow the only fiber and spindle I brought with me, WTF?). Seriously small batches actually, I finished my first 81 yards and cast on a project.
I grabbed everything in sight related to this project to finish it on this cruise and forgot the plastic sheeting for the brim. Now I can try to knit the brim anyway and then it is just a 30 minute seaming/lining job when I get home, but without the sheeting as a guide I'm pretty sure I'm going to muck up the knitting. But I'll give it a shot anyway. Maybe I'll use a cardboard guide then cut the same sized piece of sheeting when I get home.
