Heh. None of you got #8 in my list of movies. It is:
Home at Seven (1952)
Here’s the plot summary, courtesy of IMDb:
David Preston, a bank official goes missing for 24 hours and has no memory of the lost time, but when he learns that the steward of his local club has implicated him in a robbery, and has been found murdered, Preston finds he has no alibi, and the police want him to account for the lost hours.
Directed by and starring the incomparable Ralph Richardson, it is known as “Murder on Monday” in the U.S. Not available on video here but I have a copy, obtained by nefarious means.
But we’ll speak no more of that.
Several of you asked about the sock yarn pictured in last Thursday’s blog entry. It is Chameleon Colorworks Evolution sportweight sock yarn, in the “Mourning Dove” colorway, a recent gift from L-B. Here’s the description from The Loopy Ewe:
“Evolution is 100% merino that has been mechanically stretched to enhance the softness, shine and drape. Evolution is lofty and warm like wool, yet sleek and buttery soft.”
It is indeed very very soft and quite a pleasure to knit. Here’s the sock I’m knitting from it:
Because the colorway is called “Mourning Dove” I thought a pattern that looked like wings was in order. Because there was a request in the comments, Teddy agreed to model the sock in progress.
The pattern looks familiar to me, like I’ve seen a sock pattern out there that is the same or similar – anyone know? I drew this one up myself, but that doesn’t mean that someone else had a similar idea.
But That’s Not All!
I finished the shawl. Here is the pre-blocking photo:
As I expected, it is large: 100 inches across the top and 42 inches down the center back. Just about what I wanted — and I am not blocking it too severely either. A close-up:
Yes, I started my Kauni Lismore. No, you have to wait until tomorrow to see pictures. Gotta stretch out my blog fodder, ya know?
Lucy knows it is spring — here’s how much fur her Daddy got out of her in one brushing!
And yet she still looks pretty darn furry.
