Well hello! I have a quickie knitting post today with a quickie sweater that I am swooning over. I don't think the photos give it justice, too bad, because it's very pretty in person. The style is over-sized, batwinged and slouchy. It looks nice with or without the thin ribbon belt. Curio is knit on big needles with the new Rowan Kidsilk Trio in Blackthorn, fantastically soft and beautiful (and expensive, quite a splurge). It merles black and white into something beautiful that I think Coco would approve of. Love it! My Ravelry link here.
I watched Gosford Park again last night. I'd forgotten how much I loved it, what a great movie. What got me to watch Gosford Park again is Julian Fellowes, one of the actors in Monarch of the Glen, wrote Gosford Park. I am in the middle of re-watching Monarch of the Glen, a BBC Scotland series that went on for 7 or so seasons. I get them from my library, but maybe they can be ordered from Netflix, I haven't checked. If you haven't seen Monarch of the Glen, OH MY, you are in for a HUGE treat! The characters, the setting, the sweaters....sigh, and sigh again, I know you will love it as much as I do. So if you haven't seen it, consider watching it an emergency and get to it. It's important to watch it in order, the story develops beautifully. There could be close to 100 episodes, but don't let that scare you, just take your time over a year or so. It's a treat you can give yourself.
As for reading, I started The Art Forger and it looks like it might be a good one.
Thank you for stopping by and have a GREAT weekend!
