Last night I just could not stay awake for the last 20 minutes of my book so this morning, I finished it off. It was a weird one. But I wanted to get to the end so I could start Greg Iles new book which came out this week. It's 35 hours long. His stories are always amazing and this is part one of a trilogy. I hope I live long enough to get to the end!
Today I need to stop at the Red Apple grocery for cole slaw and cream cheese. And stop at the Baby Corner. And stop at the library to pick up a CD. And swim.
Fortunately, all of the above is very near but still on the outskirts of the various rallys and protests and mayhem planned around the city today. Plus, I think all the windows smashing and general stupidity is planned for later this afternoon when I will be safely ensconced back in my living room waiting for the ball game to start.
On The Good Wife last Sunday, at the very end, Alicia had on the most interesting sweater. It was a cardigan with a geometric bottom that was both different and flattering. I went to Ravelry yesterday to see what knitters were saying about it and didn't find much. I went back today and found a bunch.
Not the least of which was an entry from a woman who lives next door to the guy who's in charge of wardrobe for the show!! He gave her the URL to the folks who created the sweater - not the actual sweater but ones like it. None were less than $1K - even on sale. The one that came closest to the design was on sale for $1,500 reduced from $3,500. I guess you could look at it as saving two thousand dollars on a sweater... hmmm.
