I received numerous comments encouraging me to knit one more pair of Christine's Stay-On Baby Booties to make an even dozen. How could I resist? I picked up a solitary skein of unlabeled Lorna's Laces shephard sock from my stash (why did I have a single skein instead of two, I wonder) and cast on for the twelfth pair.
This last pair of booties was easy to knit as I watched the 2009 BBC production of Wuthering Heights
This version of the Emily Bronte classic is by far my favorite. Tom Hardy does wonders for the dark, brooding Heathcliff and Charlotte Riley gives Cathy a sympathetic portrayal despite the poor choices she makes along the way. This rendition makes me truly get a feel for the shocking state that the book's release caused upon its publication. While it didn't receive the critical acclaim at first, upon Emily Bronte's death, the discovery that this story about an unconventional married woman in Victorian England roaming the the moors at night for trysts with her lover was written by a vicar's daughter caused it to be reconsidered. Today it is revered as one of the classics of English literature. Not bad for a first book.
Check out this version of Wuthering Heights. Tell me what you think.
