Today has been a very low-key day. DH is under the weather and I'm recovering but with occasional set-backs. The cats have been in the same energy flow, as well. White Dot and Fuzzle rarely snuggle so this was definitely a moment to record. They were out on the sunporch during the rain showers when they decided to have a buddy-snooze.
I've been relaxing and surfing today---reading blogs, looking at knit designers, and looking up trivia as I think of it. My knitting vocabulary has been expanded....I think I now know what a yarn cake is---I've been calling them yarn balls. Am I being gentrified? If I make a yarn cake, will my niece and nephews think I have an Easy Bake Oven? Probably not, they'll correctly think I'm just being silly.
I viewed a lovely cardigan by Jean at Golden Purl. It is her first effort at designing her own sweater and I really enjoyed her description of the process she went through as she knit it. One of my other favorite designer blogs is Mind of Winter. Julia designs and knits items that are body-conscious but in a very nice way, and also writes pattern, book, and yarn reviews. I always leave her blog with something interesting to think about.
