In knitting news: I persevere with these continental purls.  I did catch myself doing purls continental style once by instinct, but I've also caught a few English purls cropping up when the going gets tough.

In non-knitting news: I've been lead to reading Mrs. Miniver through another blog I read, Jean's Knitting.  It turns out there is a free copy of the book available on-line and I am just so totally charmed by it.  Honestly, who can resist:
In childhood the daylight always fails too soon -- except when there are going to be fireworks; and then the sun dawdles intolerably on the threshold like a tedious guest.
Hooray for Joyce Maxtone Graham, the author, who, apparently sometimes signed her letters Joyous.
