Still a novice at choosing colors that work well together, I shamelessly copied Sannie's combo in Rowan 4-ply scottish tweed. I am quite smitten with the yarn, the pattern, the colors, everything. I love the way it is knitting up to create a real fabric--a fuzzy, solid, woolly thing that looks amazing. I did dispense with the i-cord cast on, just did a regular cast on and two rows of stockinette--it curls up to look like i-cord anyway.

WIP: Paper Dolls and Audiobooks
Knitting Kate Davies's "Paper Dolls" while listening to "Game Change" on audiobook. The book is absolutely fascinating--a behind the scenes look at the 2008 election. As an unabashed liberal, I find the book a lot of fun (spoiler alert--Obama wins!). But it's actually empathetic to all involved, though it pulls no punches when it (I think rightly) excoriates John and Elizabeth Edwards and Sarah Palin--with devastating insight. All I can say is, bullets were dodged. Political junkies of all stripes should find the book entertaining. Next I'm on to "Too Big to Fail"-- on the economic collapse. Good times.
