Petunia likes Scrabble ... and studying the comparison of feminism in the US vs. the Middle East...
And Edgar Allen Poe cat likes Middle Eastern novels...
Here, he helps hold down my notes. Helpful, isn't he?
Molly, however, prefers English Literature from Beowulf to the 1800s. Like Edgar, she seems to feel the notes will fly away if left unweighted.
She particularly likes this book of essays arguing over the validity of Thomas More's "Utopia." She preferred CS Lewis' interpretation, which was that More meant for "Utopia" to be a silly fable, nothing more. I have to agree.
Like most budding writers, Molly does have a drinking problem.
Okay, enough fooling around. I have been rather immersed in schoolwork for the last few days, and I needed a fun break. I'm about to get back to work (research paper), but before I do, here is some actual knitting!
The "Bountiful Bohus" from "More Big Girl Knits." Lucky me, the yarn in the pattern is Cascade 220, which I A) like a lot, B) can readily find, and C) don't mind paying $6.60 a skein for.
This one will require steeking. I may need someone to hold my hand through it ... I've never cut up a sweater before!
Also, trying to finish up the go-to-meeting socks:
Just haven't had enough meetings, lately. The socks are languishing.
Despite the fact I have about 6 WIPs on the needles now, this is all I have to show this week! Ack!
