Somebody pinch me 'cause--

I just wrote 2,603 words of research paper on...

The Knitting Cottage Industry in the Shetland Islands Between 1833 and 2005.

Oh yes I did.
For my "Shaping of Modern Britain" course, for a professor whose specialty is naval mutinies in WWII.

I hope he doesn't die of "bwuh?" when he reads it. I've really enjoyed his class, and I don't want to disappoint!

Also--I kinda want to write a book about Shetland knitting or something. This was by far the most fun I've ever had writing a research paper.
So why did I put it off until I had 16 hours to go?
I'm a bright one.

That sounds really intersting. Hopefully your profs taste won't interfere with your grade.

I have to aggree, the dovetail pullover doesn't look that good done in the cotton they used, but it looked like an interesting pattern. Somebody on ravelry did it in a deep purple and slightly more fitted and it looks fantastic.

That's excellent. I love it when my knitting "leaks" into other aspects of my life.

I hope you'll post your mark when you get it back!

Is there any way I can get to read your research paper? Just curious but I'm interested in knitting history.
