I just need two extra weeks of August. That would be perfect. Where are those time turners when you need them? My research is hopping along, but I still have a lot to do. (Note wonderful three people who read this blog: you will hear that a lot until I finish this which could be all year).
Knitting: I have yet to finish the socks. I have started a new project: a knitted chimp. Yes, you read that correctly. I am knitting a monkey stuffed animal. So far I have the body, the backside of the head, 1 and 1/2 arms completed. The pattern was features in a magazine by the designer extraordinary : Alan Dart. His designs are amazing. You cannot tell me this is not the cutest dragon you have ever seen? The details are amazing (check out Medieval Mice for an example).
Well, I better get back my research. Reading, revising, writing, and designing are on the menu today.
