Last night was quite productive. First of all, I finished the first Regia Jubilee sock (colorway 5472). See?
This means I'll be casting on for sock number two, thus trying to reproduce my picot cast on. If all goes as planned, I'll write up the "pattern" for you all and post it here on the old blog.
I also finished the book I had been reading, Other Electricities by Ander Monson. This was an odd book. He calls it a collection of stories, I guess I'd call it experimental fiction. There are charts, and diagrams and a guide to the characters and symbology (?) as well as a strange index in the back.
Overall the themes were quite melancholy (grief, loss) and the event were tragic (falling through the ice, murder) so I can't really say that I *enjoyed* it. Then again, I read in in only three sittings, so I guess that counts for something. It's definitely different and if you are tired of the same old, same old as I was complaining of, this may kick you out of your rut. I would say it's worth a read.
Now you know what this means -- I can start Julie & Julia tonight! No one expressed an interest in reading along. In fact, it sounds like quite a few of you have already read it! Am I this far behind the times? Maybe I'm losing my touch :)
