My new favorite accessory
Thanks to my brother, Craig, I now have a pink iPod Nano. I had no idea I was acquiring a new pet that needed feeding (downloads) and dressing (iPod cozies). At least it fits in my pocket. It is thrilling to have an alternative to bad television (I only get two channels). Amazon had a deal that gave $100 off if you signed up with Audible for a year. Hey, no problem. That was an easy decision.
I am listening to my first Audible book - Pegasus Descending by James Lee Burke. I love his writing and the detective stories about Dave Robicheaux in New Iberia, Louisiana. The reader has such a gentle Southern voice that I am lulled through the violence and moved by the descriptions of the people and landscape.
In my escape from television I have also reactivated my Netflix account and have watched Persuasion in the BBC version, and Good Night, and Good Luck. I don't know what I was expecting of the latter but not the unflinching and brilliant photography.
Also shown in the picture is my charcoal blob. A bit less of a blob now but still not very photogenic. I am on the sleeves and hope to finish on Monday. I probably won't be able to get a picture of me wearing it until next weekend. Funny how work can interfere with knitting and blogging. By then I will have started on the second version of the same sweater - a size smaller and in Cypress Malabrigo. And, of course, back to socks. I'm definitely casting on a pair on New Year's Day.
Edited to add Tell me your favorite knitting podcasts! I want to start listening.
