Lovely Lois has sent along info about a new pair of clogs she found. And yes, for knitters everywhere who are also Sensible Shoe Fanatics, they are from Dansko.

Dansko Photo Real Patent, which look like a photo of knitting!

If I took every penny I might make at this year’s Guild sale, I would be able to buy these. And they just might be worth it. I mean, look how pretty and just darn Knitty they are.

Thanks for the head’s up, Lois!

Another audiobook on deck:
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman, because I didn’t get around to it last time I had it checked out.

“A reliable way of making people believe in falsehoods is frequent repetition, because familiarity is not easily distinguished from truth.” ― Daniel Kahneman

$10, 14 pairs of knitting needles. Yes, metal, but useful to have around for sizes I don’t already have in bamboo.

Needle Treasure

Needle Treasure!

Another find from the thrift store this weekend; a plastic Weave-It Hand Loom. Something to do tiny samples on, or just a random piece to collect? Hopefully I’ll make use of it.

Current Audiobook: Having given up on the annoying Sister Grimm series, I’m moving back to adult books. Currently listening to 12.21: A Novel by Dustin Thomason

On Deck: Just picked up The Elgin Affair: The Abduction of Antiquity’s Greatest Treasures and the Passions it Aroused by Theodore Vrettos

“Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.” – Oscar Wilde

I’ll give you one guess. Starts with the letter “C” and involves two patterns from HeadHuggers. Cash Vero DK, size 7 needles.

Yes, another one

Recent Audiobooks: Unbelievably annoyed by the Sisters Grimm series. The characters are at turns completely ignorant or ridiculously knowledgeable. Are these supposed to make young readers feel better, that they can guess the answers long before the characters can? Or do they get as annoyed as I do and talk back to the audiobook about whether the editor slept through the editing process? Major knock off of the brilliant Fables series by Bill Willingham.

Other recent audiobooks: Starting the Stoneheart series by Charlie Fletcher, only because it is performed by Jim Dale of Harry Potter audiobook fame.
