Mad Men

Rarely do I find a TV drama series that I can't miss.  Remember Ed  (2001) and Northern Exposure (1990)?  Yep, two shows in 11 years.

Fastforward to 2008, AMC's Mad Men beats them all.  To me it's fun, accurate, sad and sexy.  I've seen every episode.  If you haven't seen it yet, check it out. 

If you can explain this to me please do.  How do the seasons work?  I don't understand it.  AMC's episode list for season 2 list 9 episodes.  I had to search deep into their website to find out if and when there was a 10th episode and when it was going to air.  When does season 3 start?

Roll Of The Die Sweater

My Roll Of The Die Sweater is one of my WIPs - it's a Wonderful Wallaby for afghans for Afghans. I have six different yarns to use in the striping. I've assigned each yarn a number. In order to randomly stripe, I roll. This may be the fastest Wallaby I've ever knit because I can't wait to roll the die! Fast and fun.

In other related news.  When we make it to the main library, I love to walk past the shelf of new books to see if any new knitting books have arrived. Usually I only look at the craft section. However, this week my eye was drawn to another section of the shelf and I found Dice: Deception, Fate & Rotten Luck.  Can't wait to read it.
