Crochet on the Rocks

Today is a sub-zero, stay in the house day!

Snow on the bird house
Snow on the hot tub.

A perfect day to nest and knit!

And enjoy crochet on the rocks! These squares plus one more are for the Warm the World project hosted at Knit the Classics. See the KTC blanket link in the sidebar.

Oddly enough, I reread parts of Rereadings edited by Anne Fadiman after picking it up at the library. Seventeen authors share books that they have reread as adults and contrast the experience to their youthful impressions of the books. I particularly enjoyed Allegra Goodman's review of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and her thoughts on rereading, " I return to it not because it is the best novel I have ever read, or the most important, but because of the memories and wishes I've folded in its pages--because on every reading I see old things in it."

It is one thing to show a man that he is in error, and another to put him in possession of the truth.--- John Locke

Lovely designs. This reminded me of the crochet works I did many years ago. Don't even remember where they went.

Btw, I came across your blog thru Michele's post. I liked your posts so I will continue to visit.

Have a great week.
