Nina Simone died yesterday, at the age of 70.
Last night, Bill and I rented "About a Boy," which was a lovely movie. Since I'm trying to run a knitting blog here, let me turn your attention to the role played by knits in this delightful film. If you've seen it, you'll remember that 12-year-old Marcus is often dressed in woolen hats and chunky scarves, and then there is the sweater. Is this not a thesis topic? "About a Boy: The use of bulky knitwear as a signifier for alienation and parental cluelessness...":
[There used to be four pictures from the movie here: one of Marcus in a fair isle hat, one of Marcus and his mother in knitted hats, one of Marcus in a scarf, and one of Marcus in the "goofy sweater."]
Happy Earth Day!
