Bridgewater (by Jared Flood) is finished but for the applied border. Ha! Finished???...but for the 768 stitches that each get 13 x 2 stitches knit in order to bite off one stitch--or....19,968 stitches to the finish line. (You can tell I'm rather bored with this project when I start doing the math.) Ordinarily, if I had a great audiobook, or a good movie---I'd be sticking this out....but
Dan Brown's new book came in the mail yesterday. I'm hooked. Of course, I'm hooked. I love Robert Langdon (I was an art history major, too--spent a year studying iconography!)...I love Florence....I actually read the Inferno once upon a time and didn't hate it.....and those short little chapters suck me in every time---you know, just one more...oh, the next is only two pages long....OK, one more....and the next thing you know---the characters are in the middle of a crisis, and you just HAVE to read a bit further. It probably won't win any literary awards, unless you consider shooting to the top of the NYTimes bestseller list is an "award", but it sure is a page turner----and I'm not able to knit a border and turn pages at the same time.
So the little green blob is going to be a dress for the Maggie Rabbit that I will make someday after the kit arrives. I'm sort of putting the dress before the rabbit (cart before the horse) thing. It has some mindless knitting that will allow some reading and page turning.
Like jam making....I can crush, stir, read, and turn pages.....couldn't get that French tarragon planted, though!
