Bring me out of my home...

So Pilot was right, time is a flier and now I wish January was back because January is the most laid back and relaxing month of the year, despite the heat.

Most of my usual commitments take January off, so I had more than one night in 10 at home, sometimes 3 or 4 in a row. It was lovely.

Now it's February and the calendar is chock full. Monday night was at home and there won't be another until Saturday week. What does this have to do with knitting? It means the Time Thief Watch Cap is about the only knitting there is.

TTWC 2008.009. Recycled 12 ply.

Finished last night at a National Library talk by a visiting expert, Michael Twyman. Very good talk by an accomplished speaker, fascinating discussion about the history of printing, particularly lithography, and the innovations in printing and visual communication wrought by the production of ephemera. As the talk was free and open to the public, and I won't get the time off in lieu anyway, the talk counts as a culturvorian activity as well as a work one.

Hah, so I guess I should instruct my descendants to keep my teenage years scrapbook containing all the programs of plays I was in, huh?

We're just too practiced at finding cheap and free things to do :-)

If I were you, I'd be cancelling a couple of those committments, if they weren't essential. That's not good for anyone!

you'll just have to be creative about fitting in knitting where and when you can.

Ah, I'd love to have gone to that talk at NatLib, but (a) the dreaded bug would not allow it, and (b), TSS said somethign about it being all booked out. I trust it was fun?
