{Ditzy Tuesday} Rainbow Coloured

I'm reading ... Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami, as well as The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, as well as And Another Thing (the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy sequel by the author of the Artemis Fowl series), as well as about 6 non-fiction books. I'm a bit obsessed by reading at the moment.

I'm working on ... a rug that I started twenty years ago. I wish I was exaggerating that, but I'm not! It's made from yucky acrylic, because I didn't know any better back then, and it's oh-so-70s, but I'm finishing it anyway. Yesterday I counted the sections and was delighted to discover that I've finished 3 more than I thought I had. Not long to go now!

I'm drinking ... endless cups of tea and eating chicken soup. I've still been sick on and off, so the simple comforts of flavoured liquids are my favourites right now.

The picture ... My rug doesn't look like this. I'd love to do something like this, but I don't have the patience for all that weaving in! Urgh!

{Ditzy Tuesday} It's My Blog....

I'm reading ... the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer. I mainly only started it to see if the author might be in any way qualified to write the sequel to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. (Many might wonder how anyone could do it justice, but I'm willing to be open-minded). I'm actually really enjoying them and I've chomped my way through to the seventh and final book in only two weeks.

I'm working on ... blankets and more blankets! The mindless crocheted squares are pretty much all I can handle at the moment. They're a perfect match for all the mindless TV I watch every night!

I'm sorting ... my clothes. On the weekend I did my semi-annual summer-winter clothes swap-over and purge. I actually did get rid of some stuff this time. I'm trying to tell myself that doesn't give me permission to buy more clothes! Perhaps I'll make some...

The picture ... I'm torn between feeling guilty for being so neglectful of my blog, of only posting shallow fluff and no actual project progress. On the other hand, I feel like going ... nyer-nyer-nyer, it's my blog and I'll do whatever I like with it! So I thought this image was appropriate.

{Ditzy Tuesday} Crochet Loving

I'm reading ... A Left-Handed History of the World by Ed Wright. Fellow left-handers who've achieved so much more than I have! I'm up to the section on Ghandhi at the moment.

I'm obsessing over ... reconciling the books I've downloaded with my list of books I want to read. I downloaded nearly 3,000, so there's a bit of work there.

The picture ... these hand-carved crochet hooks are just gorgeous. I've been heavily into crochet lately. Any other craft just seems a bit wrong and unfamiliar. I get like that when I'm obsessed with one craft! I'm even planning on some larger projects - blankets mainly. This is a big change for me; up until recently, anything bigger than a scarf would freak me out completely. Speaking of scarves, I finished (another!) one recently. I'll post pictures soon.
