Update for Green Gables

Just a quick note before I head to bed – my Green Gables top is going really smoothly, and it looks like I’ll make my deadline of next Friday, for the fashion show where I have to wear it.  Yay!  I’m at the waist and it’s moving faster now.  Fingers crossed!

A side note: I’ve now listened to two of the three sections of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and am really enjoying it.  Not sure what Heather (of “CraftLit”) means about the being scared about “the vocabulary of the story”, and about being “almost as hard to listen to as Shakespeare”.   Okay, I’ve seen/listened to Shakespeare and now to Washington Irving (author of Sleepy Hollow), and Irving’s story is not even remotely as difficult to listen to or understand, to me anyhow.  Hm, I wonder why.  Maybe because I’ve read or listened to many period piece-type stories?

Nice to know that Disney did a reasonable job of translating the story into their cartoon adaptation though…

another post script: Tappan Zee is more than just a Knitty.com cardigan – it’s a bridge in New York, and is a Dutch name.  Who knew?
