It's mild today. Wednesday has ventured out to play in the snow and explore winter. Here she is asking to be let out.
I have a heap of reading to do:
three articles: "Les besoins ignorés des femmes africaines dans la lutte contre le SIDA", "Féminismes, politique et nationalisme dans le monde arabe" et "Femmes de Palestine: quel féminisme?";
Gender and Sex Differences in Child Development;
and, at the other extreme of the lifespan:
Socially Sanctioned Death: The Holocaust, and Coping with Dying: How Individuals Can Help.
Ideally I would like to be knitting while I read these, but I'm not allowed to start any new projects (including the pink beret and my sock) until I finish the ones I've started (I'm sure you've heard that refrain before, or said it yourself), most particularly my drop-stitch cardigan and Blissful jacket. I have no easy garter-or stocking-stitch project on the go; the two sweaters require unpicking seams and reseaming, or fiddling and a lot of thinking in the case of the cardigan; both projects sort of require my full attention. The lace-up opera gloves were mostly to take the edge off the sweaters. Hmm...maybe I should knit the beret in that same vein...
