lsIn other knitting news: are you in Ottawa? do you want to get together at a yarn store for knitting-talk and a little book signing? Yes, Wabi Sabi is kindly organizing a book signing with yours truly for the Idiot's Guide to Knitting. July 5th, 11 am to 1pm, at Wabi Sabi, 1078 Wellington.

AND, if you live in the region, I will be teaching a very exciting workshop this summer. Can't say too much yet, but more details soon.

In non-knitting news, we are now on season 2 of Game of Thrones. It took me a little while to get interested, but am thoroughly hooked now. The imp is pretty awesome. My main complaints: that a certain male character was beheaded in the first season, he will be missed. And, does there really need to be quite so much whoring around? There are even whores on the boats. Is that a thing? Whores on Boats? (Sounds like a good spin off idea.) AND, why do all the characters have long conversations during the very graphic sex scenes? It's like the writers were instructed to fit in a certain quota of dialogue and a certain quota of sex, but 52 minutes wasn't enough for both. I'm pretty sure that getting to third base and holding a conversation about politics and driving a horse, might be a little too much multitasking. Wouldn't someone fall off or drive the horse over a rocky cliff? Just saying...
