Well, I am still proofreading, but in the little bits of time in between, I made myself something. I first learnt about I-cord knitting on Anjie's blog. It is kind of like French knitting, but you use knitting needles (with sharp ends on both sides). Boy, what fun. You knit and knit and knit and this tube forms that closes itself up. It is like magic! Anyway.
I wanted to make something quickly, like in the 10 minutes between proofreading sessions. Not for me the beautiful cable-knit jersey knitted over months, or the heirloom blanket crocheted painstakingly over years. No, I want immediate gratification, I want to make something and I want it NOW.
So I made some bangles.Oh, the colours are a bit bright - leftover cerise wool with orange car boot sale buttons - and not really suited to my black and charcoal grey and chocolate brown wardrobe, but what the hell. I need a bit of colour in my drab proofreader's life.
