I read the Maggie Sefton book, Dropped Dead Stitch, this weekend and I wasn’t very impressed. It seemed like she was working too hard to make it a mystery and to tie the knitting into the story, which seems funny, as most of the people in the story were knitters. I don't know why, but I liked her first two novels better. I think I am done buying her hardback books; the last two just weren’t as good.
I fixed all of my mistakes on the on the one row pattern scarf and am back to where I started, grrr. I really hate it when I do something stupid like that. Maybe that is God’s way of telling me to slow down and smell the chocolate and that I am human.
We went to see Angels and Demons this weekend and it was great. I don’t go to the movies very often because I get so bored sitting still. This time I came prepared with a baby blanket and a sock; I knit exactly ¾ of a row. I was so enthralled with the movie that it did not bother me to sit still and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Have a wonderful and knitterly day!
If you joined the circus, what act would you most want to perform?
I wouldn’t perform, I would take care of the elephants.
Would you generally be overdressed or underdressed at a party?
Underdressed, I hate it when I am the most dressed up person in the room.
Do you feel that children should be sheltered from unhappiness?
Yes I do, to a certain degree. Children do not need to be aware of the hate and discontent in the world; they do not need to know of their parents problems (work, alcohol, or marriage). Children should be allowed to enjoy their childhood and then be gently brought into the real world as they grow up.
