Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Wow. Really gorgeous clothes she makes. I sew, but I've never tried to knit. It intimidates me, I think.

Hi Kaycie! I used to sew most of my clothes but haven't made anything for a long time. Now I'm more apt to knit because it's easier to pick up and leave off for a while. Don't be intimidated - it's actually easier to make a nice knitted project with simple stitches and a gorgeous yarn than it is to sew clothing, I think. It just takes a while to get the hang of it and be able to knit in a fluid rhythm. Get someone to show you and try it. (Believe me, I wouldn't try to make one of these complicated projects, though I really admire them! I'd never finish it.)

Seems to be quite a lot of knitting on blogs at the moment!
