1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest

So (this is sad) the closest book to me is Transport Phenomena. And since p. 123 was a chart, you get p. 124 instead:

"When it is substituted into Eq. 4.2-3, we get

(d^2/dr^2 - 2/r^2)(d^2/dr^2 - 2/r^2)*f = 0

The fact that the variable theta does not appear in this equation suggests that the postulate in Eq. 4.2-7 is satisfactory. Equation 4.2-8 is an 'equidimensional' fourth-order equation (see Eq. C.1-14)."
Last night was spent furiously hemming 8 curtains for a friend of a friend - furious because for the first half hour of attempting to sew my machine kept jamming. Turns out the thread had slipped out of the feed....oops. Overall, it took me about 4 hours of pinning, ironing, sewing, and trimming to finish them. And resulted in some very sore shoulders! But they're done and ready to be delivered and I can go back to knitting!
Close to be finished are Fetching and a Noro beanie. Still to be worked on are Wicker and MDK washclothes. But with the multitude of patterns I've printed out (Wicked, Green Gable, Simple Knitted Bodice, Thermal, Argosy) I've already got yarn in mind for the Knitty patterns - some Rowan tweed 4 ply for Thermal and a black and red varigated yarn for Argosy. Though I do have alot of socks to knit....There've been alot of posts lately about knee-highs, and I do have some yarns that would work....
