|Conversations overheard in Indian restaurants:|
Woman: "She has a Corgi - they have big heads for their size"
Man: "The Queen has Corgis"
Man: "Yes, Corgis come from Wales"
Woman: "From whales???"
Man: "You know, Wales, the country"
Woman: "Oh, WALES. I've always wanted to go to Wales..."
Woman one: "We are going to see that new movie The Other Boleyn Girl next week"
Woman two: "I can't wait to see it; I love movies set in that era - you know, like Pride and Prejudice"
You know how some knitting projects have a black hole phase, where you knit and knit and knit and nothing seems to happen? I have discovered an unusual variation of this effect:
I think that my arms are growing at a rate equal to that of the sleeves. The sleeves themselves seem to be getting bigger, but when I try them on, the gap between my armpit and the needle remains unchanged. The sleeve on the left is in a time out right now - there was a knot in the darker colourway skein which led to a sudden colour change from blue to black mid-stripe. I'm trying to decide if I should just leave it or rip it back and start the stripe out black.
