Pussycat 2

January 14, 2008

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.
