Pussycat 2

This is what I discovered. Paula Prentiss and Ursula Andress are still around and “semi-retired”. Does that mean they work when want to or when they can find something? They are around 70. That sounds retired to me. After several attempts, Capucine managed to kill herself in 1990. Romy Schneider died of cardiac arrest when she was 47. I am assuming that you know Peter Sellers died several years ago. Did you see Dr. Strangelove? I first saw it in a wonderful old theatre in Omaha, Nebraska so that must have been in the Winter of 63-64. There was another movie playing with it, but I don’t remember what it was. Peter O’Toole is still making movies, several of which I thoroughly enjoyed, but it is really hard to find those beautiful blue eyes in all those wrinkles. Woody Allen is still a genius, but his lifestyle makes me sick.

I can’t make up my mind about this sweater. Knitting the sleeve on circular needles has been really slow. And I’m not sure that I like this pattern. There are at least two others that I could make with this yarn. Even if I stay with this one, I know I don’t want to finish this sleeve in the round. I really don’t want to unknit it, steam it, dry it and rewind it, but I guess I will have to. Otherwise, it will never get done.

The glove is coming along nicely. Look at those increases for the thumb. No holes.

    Peter Sellers…I loved his movies…all of them. I try to ignore anything to do with Woody Allen’s personal life choices… I haven’t thought of Peter O’Toole’s blue eyes for a long time…sigh…I love the colors and think the pattern is nice but I know that if you are not happy it is best to unknit. I have never knit a sleeve in the round and I don’t think I would like that either. I have hit row 29 on the back of the new cable sweater that I opted for. It is looking good! I am glad that I choose to unknit the other one. I was very uninspired by it and it was not fun. I like the glove pattern. It kind of reminds me of Siwash or Cowachin patterns. (Hmmm…not sure of the spelling on those)

    I always found Peter Sellers hard to cope with, though I do recognise that he was an incredibly gifted person.

    I am knitting in the round for the first time, a baby cardigan in fairisle, haven’t quite decided if I like it yet but I am determined to persevere.
