Last night I was re-reading The Glass Lake, by Maeve Binchy, and I noticed this:

     Like those fishermen over in the West of Ireland who went out in frail boats to fish in the roaring Atlantic, and they all wore different kinds of jumpers so they would know whose family it was when a body was found. Each family had its own stitch. Complicated and perverse, Dr. Kelly thought. Why hadn't they taught the young fishermen to swim?

Yeah, um... suddenly I have absolutely no interest left in knitting Aran sweaters. Just, ick.

I don't actually know if it's true or not; I thought I'd make a fuss on LJ before I bother looking anything up on Google.


I have your book. Mary is hoping to do a book swap with you in the near future and so gave me both of your books to pass along to you. We're meeting at her place the second Monday in August if you're up to joining us. If not, I'll be a knitting this week (but not next) and we can trade books then.

Since we haven't seen you in a while, I hope you're doing well.
