So, "Women Writers" is finished, and I am ready for the last class I have to take for this degree ...
Literary Theory! A class so jam-packed with papers and required reading, that I saved it for last. For the record, I've already written a paper on "Heart of Darkness," and unfortunately, I can't recycle it because the topic will be different. Drat! I've never read "Waiting for Godot," but I don't really enjoy reading plays (except Shakespeare). Other works I will be examining are "Hamlet," and "A Rose for Emily," which I have always liked. The spinster in me likes the idea of poisoning a caddish suitor and keeping his decaying body in a wedding suit in an upstairs bedroom for forty years.
Maybe I should ease up on watching so much "Bones." Here's a distraction:
These are intended for a friend's child. Since she has four, it will be for whomever it fits, hopefully the eldest. It looks a bit funny because I like to ktbl on my cuffs, to make it look neater. Ribbing stretches out so easily at the top.
Here is my work-in-progress, that I spend 90% of my knitting time on:
I had to stop working on it last night, because it's time to start the color chart, and I'd had a couple of the aforementioned brandy-and-orange-liquors. I was afraid I'd mess up the chart, not to mention miss some crucial aspect of "Bones," if I tried to do both. I should be done with this sweater within a couple weeks, just in time for the chilly weather.
Here is the obligatory cute-animal picture. Georgie Girl declined to have her picture taken -- I've just given her a rather amateurish hair cut, and she's being camera-shy. So here instead is Petunia trying to figure out what a sunbeam is ....
And a couple of kitties on the windowsill, enjoying the nice day!
One final note ... another friend has started a blog. It focuses on healthy and delicious recipes. Enjoy!
I hope to have a much-closer-to-finished sweater next time I blog!
