Instead of knitting buttonholes, this time I experimented with knotting button loops.
One of the books I picked up at the thrift store last week was War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells. If you can believe it, I’ve never read it. I have no idea why not. Anyway, it looked like a great opportunity for 50 cents! I’m several chapters in and enjoying it immensely. I always read the scholarly introductions to classic works (yes, this makes me a card-carrying nerd) and I was dismayed to read of Wells’ rampant racism and favor toward eugenics. Reading the Wikipedia entry on Wells, I was presented with fairly different information. So it just goes to show that you have to read with discernment. Regardless of what Wells thought, I’m enjoying the book. (c:
