I have 90grams about 200 yards left for the sleeves. I am confident that this will be enough to get me to elbow length sleeves, if not three quarter length.
I too have been Persuaded. I have about two hours to go on Jane Austen’s Persuasion. I am surprised to say that I do love this story! I shouldn’t be since it falls squarely in the classification of early 19th century literature which The Boyfriend would be the first to tell you is my favorite. Usually I think of Sci-Fi Fantasy as my favorite but I don’t get the same rich over indulgent feeling I do from Dickens, Bronte, Wilde, Stoker, Shelley, or Austen. Although the plot of Persuasion is predictable, Austen draws out the inevitable conclusion and expertly builds the anticipation. Small wonder this book is a book club favorite. Picture is from the 1995 version staring Amanda Root & Cianran Hinds (Cesar in the HBO series Rome, which you know I adore).
I hope that by the time I finish the story and my coffee I’ll have finished a sleeve. The Boyfriend and I will be running off to B&N to pick up a new knitting magazine that Lucy taunted me with on Friday night. Something German and full of sweaters I must have. Don’t be surprised if I fall victim to my Sunday addiction again this week. I’m sure it’s fine, as long as I continue to finish what I start! And I won’t hear otherwise!
