Did I mentioned that I started a little Rogue on WoW? A little tiny Gnome Rogue named DPNS. My son nicely informed me that it's supposed to be DPS (Damage Per Second) but I said no, it's a knitting thing...Double Pointed NeedleS. Appropraite in so many ways as the Rogue will be dual welding and specializing in swords and daggers.

Figures in Silk

Last week, I picked up Figures in Silk and read it through in one sitting. I wasn't expecting to like the book. Historical fiction is usually not my first choice for a book but it did say SILK WEAVING on the cover. I was expecting it to be badly written, along the lines of Maggie Sefton's books. There were a few weak spots but overall, really enjoyed the book and will defintely read it again.

Over the weekend, I finished plying the first skein of the BFL from Yummy Yarns and started spinning the second skein. It was nice spinning in the morning because it was still cool enough that the fibres didn't stick to my sweaty fingers. As far as weekend goes, it was perfect. The mornings were nice and cool so I got a fair bit of fibre stuff done. The afternoons & evenings were spent with family & friends, bbq'ing & relaxing.

How I spent my Friday night...

I'm at work...I'm actually hiding in my office. We have an event happening and I'm waiting for my family who are here to watch the event. I'm going to get some food, put on some music, and finish my sock. I will have 3 hours of uninterupted knitting time.

I was just thinking it's too bad I can't load up WoW on my work computer.
