More random thinking.....
is a prime example of why I can't bring myself to keep a personal journal. Click on the link to read the article. I read it...can't say I learned anything in particular about faith by doing so. Unless one counts on the misplaced trust in the human ability to keep confidences. I find it despicable that her confessors did not honor her wishes to destroy her correspondence...let alone make them public.
I'm the youngest in a family of 5. One of the lessons learned very early in life is that if you write it down, be prepared to be held accountable for it somewhere down the road. I speak not only as the victim, but also the perpetrator.
The antidote to the dear diary aversion: a journal posted for the whole wide world to read. Brilliant!
Consider yourself warned on those tidy little books you might keep under your mattress. However, if anyone dares to broadcast your deepest, most private thoughts, it won't be me. It has something to do with that "do unto others..." rule.
Now for some fiber updates:
Bought a new book this week: Modular Knits by Iris Schreier. Mary posted a scarf from this book. We are long time friends...so I went to the library and checked out the book. There are some interesting techniques for some scarves and a vest in there and I had an Amazon gift certificate that was about to expire. Now I have no gift certificate, but a brand new book!
Mystery stole 3: I've decided that that asymmetry is not for me....nor is the suggested technique for a symmetrical shawl. So, I'm thinking of starting the other half from the beginning and joining the two ends in the middle with a completely different beaded stitch. However, it's going to be a couple weeks until I get around to that.
Meanwhile...have a great Labor Day weekend if you're in the US and Canada!
