Last night I watched Nature all about snow leopards, followed by 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama. I highly recommend you catch 10 Questions if you have the chance. I know very little about His Holiness, but I am curious about him after having the opportunity to travel briefly in Tibet. Some of his answers are very surprising. Then again, he is interested in things like quantum physics and neurosurgery, and taken in that context maybe I shouldn't have been so surprised. I say watch it and judge for yourself. As for me, I must say that it deepened the respect I have for him.
And I got some sock knitting done. I was on the heel flap last night, and now I'm picking up stitches for the gusset. I think I've dropped one on the last row of the short rows for the heel turn (argh!). I've got to see if it looks ok, or if in my pursuit of excellence in sock knitting, I need to do some ripping.
