little acorn

knitted acorn bookmark

Thank you for all your feedback and suggestions yesterday.

I'm rolling them all around my tongue to see how they feel. I'll be sure to let you know when and if things develop.

In the meantime I have a paper to write (medieval imperial ideology and the importance of patronage in Ottonian art and I'm not making that up swear.to.god) and lots of knitting orders to fulfill and post off (Louise, that bookmark has your name on it), followed by a very special dinner on Thursday night and a craft weekend away. Plus, you know, work, housework and children ...

see ya round like a rissole



(no, I can't believe I wrote 'ya' either).

Oh, I love that bookmark. Well, I love all your gnomes and acorns and vegetables and things too. My ghosts were a bit simple compared to your wonders, but I thought they were quite sweet (they're just little - shorter than my palm). They're honoured that you've looked at them!

Nevermind 'ya', I can't believe you wrote "medieval imperial ideology and the importance of patronage in Ottonian art".

Off to google Ottonian ...

I can't believe the reference to the rissole!!!! What will your American readers think of that? Though I might just do that on Thursday..... Though I am not implying you are round in any way; I may have been talking about myself ;-)

I believe the word is youse.

I think 'youse' is more an East Coast thing, but I could be wrong, being a West Coast gal, and all... At least you didn't say you were off like a prom dress!

Wow, i don't know how your brain still works (in a comprehend & provide written proof kind of way) after children. I was a budding pharmacologist, then had 4 children in the first 5 years out of Uni & poof, i can sew pretty fabrics together, but unless it's something i really love, i can't find time to read or digest anything remotely academic. Congratulations!! Love Posie

You ARE amazing. I cant wait to read the paper. and see the knitting. and all that stuff.

I am now curious as to the extent of patronage in the Ottonian Art. Patrinage. Interesting. I think I will golook that up. better still, I'll let you do that and you can share it!!!
Thanks for the mention the other week, by the way, I read it when I was in russia and was quite chuffed!

Kim said...

Can you please post your paper on and I quote medieval imperial ideology and the importance of patronage in Ottonian art in parts for us?

Like a radio play. But on the internet. So written.




Maybe it could be like one of those Make your own adventure books.



Cough.

BabelBabe said...

Who DOESN'T want to know more about Ottonian art? I DO.

Fairlie said...

Kim sent me. PLEASE post your uni paper on medieval imperial ideology and the importance of patronage in Ottonian art. PLEASE.

daysgoby said...

Kim sent me.

(Well, I was headed over here anyway)

but your paper sounds fascinating.

Kim said...

Suse, you know I love you.
You know I find your ability, nay skill, at knitting fruit with gradients of shading quite remarkable albeit just plain weird.


But the acorn is killing me.


Post something. Anyhing. Your breakfast. A pair of knitted socks. Those washcloths everyone raves about. Some fingerless gloves which seem to have created their own internet craze to rival that of the pumpkin patch doll circa 1982.

Anything.

I'm beginning to really want to know about medieval imperial ideology.

I'm not too vain to beg.

Oh my. I was just wondering, what is that poetry?
