Fred says, being products of media overkill, that we are difficult to please. We were not impressed with the King Tut exhibit. Later, while wandering the art gallery we had a lovely time. We visited the Group of Seven works and then saw a wonderful comparison exhibit of sketches done by Rembrandt and Freud. Not that Freud but his grand son.
All the time asking ourselves what had disappointed us about the Tut exhibit. Perhaps the crowds of people. Even though tickets are timed, so - supposedly - crowds are controlled, we found it too packed with people for our liking. Perhaps too 'lessony' in it's desire to teach about the burial practises of Egyptian Pharaohs. In the end though, I said "I think I expected to see Tut." Naive perhaps, but you know, we went to see the King Tut exhibit. I thought I'd see Tut. The closest one comes to seeing Tut is the coffin for his stomach. Not the grandeur I expected.
Car knitting, however, was super. 'Thochie' number one is done. Shown here, with the bottom of the foot knit but not 'kitchenered' together.
Now, 'kitchenered' and ready to wear.
Briggs & Little Tuffy, a worsted weight, sock yarn. With that weight of yarn, the pulling together of the heel and toe stitches (thread yarn through stitches and pull together tightly - as you might do at the top of a hat) is a little bulky. With regular weight sock yarn, they might fit more like a sock.
Back to normal programming - Waterloo. At least one more evening of colour work. Two at the most. Then on to steeking.
