lilyofshalott: (So my fantasy)

I was wandering about on Ravelry earlier this afternoon and discovered that today is apparently "Sweater Day" in honour of what would have been Fred Rogers's 80th birthday. Someone also posted a link to Entertainment Weekly's 20 Pop Culture Sweaters photo gallery which is quite fun. Notable knits include Colin Firth's reindeer jumper from Bridget Jones's Diary (♥!), Anne Hathaway's cabled jumper from The Devil Wears Prada (which I loved—I have several like it, actually—because I adore cables), the Once-ler's Thneeds from The Lorax, Charlie Brown's trademark black-and-yellow jumper, and the myriad knits from Harry Potter. Annoyingly, though, the writer uses "knit," "crochet," and "woven" interchangeably. Also, they imply that Mrs. Weasley didn't actually knit all those jumpers (they put "knitted" in quotation marks as if to say "oh, she just used magic, didn’t she")—I'm pretty sure I remember reading that she'd enchanted her knitting needles so they could knit happily while she made dinner or something. But anyway, there is much sweater love to be had in said article. ^_^

I've been looking at the library's selection of audiobooks as I shelve them and was happy to learn that we have both Patrick O'Brian's Master and Commander (I've seen the film but not read the books yet) and Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse (one of my favourite books)—I finally borrowed them yesterday. With audios, I don't have to choose between whether I'd like to read or knit—I can do both. (Joy!) So . . . which should I listen to first?

Also, I've been rather into looking at MBTI stuff recently and found another quiz (or two) at

my results )

And if you haven't taken my "Name My Dalek" poll yet, please do! I will have another round of progress pics up in the next few days—I just need to take said pictures first.
