what I'm loving lately

My favorite thing to do lately in between chores or in the evening is to sit and knit a few rows while I sip some tea and usually watch some BBC television. (Robin Hood and Top Gear have been the most watched lately) Today I had a few Belgian Chocolate Thins with my tea which are divine. We got them at World Market last night. I've had to switch to decaf tea since regular caffeinated tea has been making my heart flip out. Not good! I really like decaf Typhoo. You can't really tell it's decaf!







I'm currently knitting house socks from the Spanish Dancer Sock Pattern with Wool Ease Blush Heather. This is probably one of my favorite yarns (outside of high end yarn shops). I like how wooly it feels yet it's machine washable and dryable.

I started reading Cranford last night and I'm loving it. I'm not sure if it's the story itself or the lovely cover...I think it's both.

I decided I needed to read my penguin classics so I can have an excuse to buy more. Right? As if their prettiness isn't a good enough excuse. :) So far I have this one and Oliver Twist. Which one should I buy next?
