Ouch!

I've had a little kitchen accident... I stupidly cut my left index finger with the largest kitchen knife I own. I'm all right, but this means that I cannot bend my finger (or the wounds re-opens, ugh) and therefore makes knitting tricky. And my left shoulder, site of my brand new tattoos, is painful too. I naively thought that tattoos hurt just *while* you were getting them done, I never imagined that they would hurt afterwards. It's not too bad --it feels like a sunburn-- but still: Grr...

Right. Instead of complaining, I will show you pics of Rapunzel. In macro mode.
Here are the diagonal ribs. Isn't it cool how the K2s pop up from the P3s?
And here is the very subtle Fair Isle, done in moss stitch. I love that the sparkly GGH Velour Lame stitch pokes out every 4th row.

Finally, a full back view. You can see the central vertical 4 stitch stripe on the left. At the very top, although it's blurry, you can see where the diagonal ribs meet the moss stitch. That means I'm more than half-way done on the back! Yay!



On a completely different note, have you been following the DaVinci Code trial? The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail claim that Dan Brown, author of the DaVinci Code, copied the "architecture" of their book. Now, I read the DaVinci code when it came out and bought Holy Blood, Holy Grail recently. Here's my 2c: as far as I can tell, the DaVinci Code is an exact copy of Holy Blood, Holy Grail. (Except that the DaVinci Code is a poorly written adventure novel whereas Holy Blood, Holy Grail is a well-written, well-documented history book). Will I get in trouble for writing this? I'm not very subtle or restrained.
