Two FOs

I know, three posts in two days. I told you I had no life.

First, my Tumnus scarf! Yay!

Completely self-designed. I did screw up a bit and could have used a slightly better stitch pattern. Also, I thought the yarn was a bit hairier than it was. Thus this is only v1.0. I'm on a yarn diet right now so I will have to wait to put some mohair along with it, and to maybe replace this yarn with something different of a greater quantity (perhaps Patons Classic Merino in Bright Red). As you can see, it is a reasonable length but I like long scarves.

For those who don't get it, it's based on the scarf Mr. Tumnus the faun wears in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

My second FO, this of a non-knitting variety:
My first film studies paper finished!

I don't want to get kicked out of school so I am only showing you the title page, and don't want to get stalked so have blocked out all important details. I analysed the first 10 shots of a scene, then wrote an analysis on how those shots set the mood and tone for the whole scene. In case you're interested, it's the scene where Lydia drives to the Fawcett farm and discovers...something (dun dun DUN!). Pretty much the grossest scene in the whole movie. I think most audiences today would be grossed out. If you're familiar with the Corinthian in Neil Gaiman's Sandman series, that's pretty much all I need to tell you.
