No pictures of the knitting in progress at the moment, because everything looks exactly the same, just bigger. Which is kind of hard to show in a photograph due to the whole, you know scale thing.
Knitted some more on the Lettuce. Which looks like it may actually fit me now that I'm actually knitting to the correct stitch count, instead of to half of what it should be.
Spent some time last night watching episodes two and three of Mad Men. It really is a gorgeous show, but it leaves me so cold. It's absolutely brutal. I tend to fill my life with things that are uplifting and happy (mostly to counterbalance my dark personality) and I think maybe Mad Men is not something that will be good for me in the long run.
January Jones' character (Mrs. Draper) was wearing some excellent sweaters in the show last night.
And speaking of excellent knitwear, did anyone else get totally distracted by the knits in Despicable Me?
All of the fabric was finely textured in this movie - I think the animators did a beautiful job with it. But what made me the happiest is that the knitted items were quite accurate. They really studied the knit stitch and put perfect representations of it in all the knitted garments in the movie. AWESOME.
Gru has the scarf in the picture above, and an excellent ribbed turtleneck sweater. Gru's mother knits (pictured in a flashback to his childhood). The little girl on the left is wearing a knitted pink hat and sweater. Though Vector (not pictured) is wearing a track suit, they even showed highly defined knit stitches in the texture of his clothing. Oh, and the evil orphanage lady was wearing a pink angora sweater.
That's about it for me today. Off to attempt to work and stuff. (oh, and good news on that front, I was approached by a site to have a two week "tryout" as their main writer on energy. Pretty cool, no?)
