Well, here it is, Thursday. I think this will be a brief post, I have gotten further into the left front of my jacket, but it just doesn't look photo worthy to me. Neither does my progress on Ethereal Fichu. I have, however, decided (I think) on my Olympic project. I am going to do the Bi-Color Brioche from the Spring, 2005 Interweave. I am going to use some Knitpicks Merino Style in Tide Pool and Storm. Would it be cheating to do a gauge swatch and to try to learn the brioche stitch (which I have never done before) before the flame lights?

I have an image in my head for a b&w photograph. I briefly set up and shot the still life this morning, I was going to post it, but the lighting wasn't right and the shot looked mediocre, if I viewed it generously, so no b&w today either.

Non-knitting note, I have decided to omit dairy and eggs from my cooking, not from my diet when I go to restaurants, but from my home. Is there any reasonable substitution for feta out there? I have fresh spinach and a recipe for polenta with spinach and feta that I was thinking of making for dinner, but first must figure out some substitution for the feta. If you have any thoughts please leave them in the comments. Thank you!

Finally note, Isis loves hand knit socks. Being a cat she doesn't wear them. She also doesn't play with them when I am home. On several occasions, including last night, hand knit socks that were in the living room when I left for work turn up in the kitchen when I get home. I would love to catch her in the act of hunting and carrying off my sock, any thoughts on how that can be done?

I think swatching pre-flame is totally acceptable - I believe the Harlot would consider it training ;-)

You should set up an Isis cam that you can watch online during the day. I would love to see what my doggy does while I'm not at home!

yes, swatching is considered training! Isn't that funny? I love that pattern ;)
