Speaking of knitting, I now have a good leg up (!) on the back of my sleeveless nubby silk sweater, and every day I love the deep turquoise colour even more. For those of you who love both poetry and colour, may I commend to you Stephen Beal's The Very Stuff: Poems on color, thread and the habits of women -- Interweave Press, Loveland, Colorado, 1995. The poems fairly glow with colour and warmth!
Goodness knows, warmth is needed in Calgary this a.m.! It's -23C out there -- after plugging in my car and sweeping the latest dusting of powder off my front walk, I had to use both knitting and coffee to warm up my hands!
Off to get ready for class. Meanwhile, stay warm! :-)
