An apology and some yarn porn

My Secret Pal mentionned that I hadn't updated my blog in a long time. I didn't realize it had been that long (almost a month!) I shall never let that happen again!

Don't worry though, I'm still knitting happily. Kyoto is going along ok, I only have the sleeves and the collar left. It's going to be way too big though. I'll give it away to my sister I think. I can't wait until I'm a good knitter. *sigh*

I'm also knitting a Clapotis. Oh my God it's so much fun! I'm not using the best yarn for it (Patons Decor), but it's still nice. I'm pretty sure I'll make another one sometime, with better yarn.

The lovely Jo asked her readers to ask her three questions, any questions, that she answered in her next entries. I'm a copycat so I'll do the same thing.

ASK ME THREE QUESTIONS. ANYTHING!

Now on to the yarn porn. I went to Mouliné today to get yarn for my Secret Pal. That place is so great, I could easily spend my whole paycheck in there! But I didn't! I really admire my discipline. I only got yarn for the gift. Unfortunately, I can't post it here in case my Pal stumbles on my blog. But it's yummy, I can tell you that.

So no new yarn for me. But I took a pic of my knitting corner:

And just so you can see better, I emptied the baskets on my bed:

It's not that big, but it's all MINE! And I don't discriminate, I got everything in there, from cheap acrylic to soft alpaca. I think I'll leave it on the bed and sleep in it tonight!

Oh, your knitting corner is so nice!

And I do admire your discipline - instead of a "corner" I have a chest and a bookshelf.

Questions!

1. If you were to listen to music while you knit, what kind of music would it be?

2. How do you exercise such restraint walking into a gourmet yarn store?

3. can't think of a third one, but you rock nonetheless.

1- What did you eat today? No cheating on this one. lol! ;)

2- What are the books on your knitting table?

3- What's your next story for work?

4- ok I'm too curious and can't listen to rules! :-P Why did you start knitting?

1. Do you write for pleasure too, in addition to doing it for work? if so, what do you write?

2. What's your fantasy "I want to knit that for me" pattern (or just the type of garment if you don't have a specific pattern in mind)?

3. When am I taking you and Jo on a field trip to Bergere de France? :-)

4. What's your favourite food-and-wine combination? (ask Jo...I can't help asking people this question PLUS I follow rules as well as she does ;-)))

You are a good knitter! Heck, even if all you do is garter stitch and cast on and cast off, that's talent. People don't believe me when I tell them that knitting is just a combination of two stitches. If you can purl and knit, you can do anything.

Oooops, that last comment was from me.
