Today is May, 25, 2015. I’m beginning my notes for this post at 9:55 am local time here in the Med, and it’s already uncomfortably hot and humid here in our sailboat. This sort of intense heat zaps my energy and sucks it right out of me, so I’m hoping today’s post won’t end up reading something like “Today I slept all day. The end!”
Speaking of sleeping: My kitties all got up at some stupid early hour this morning, and they were running around like wildcats. I was awakened by one of them taking a broad leap and landing on my head. I have scratch marks on my face to show for that. 🙁
Now the kitties are all sleeping like little black and white angels. Happiness = 4 adorable sleeping cats.
I ended up being more productive than expected today. No sleeping for me — not even a little nap.
Today I Crocheted…
…a swatch of “zig-zag lozenge stitch”, from Sarah Hazell’s Crochet Stitch Dictionary.
This is an intriguing stitch that I’m interested in trying again, next time in stripes of three different colors.
Today I Published…
- A book review of Sarah Hazell’s Crochet Stitch Dictionary
- This book review of Susan Lowman’s filet crochet pattern book.
The short version of these reviews: I love both these books, and highly recommend them. I invite you to check out the reviews if you’re curious about the details of why.
Thanks for dropping by! I really appreciate your interest.
