Juno, Regina.

Juno Regina

It seemed appropriate to cast on for Juno Regina in light of having just completed a course in ancient history. Naturally, my research paper for the class was about women and textiles. While Juno didn’t have any specific links to textiles that I can find, she was the protector of women in ancient Rome, and women were the ones who spun the wool and made the cloth. Close enough for government work. It also seems appropriate because Juno, like so many of Mim’s other patterns, has these elegant and stately columns of stockinette stitch and yarnovers (which, I am sorry to say, are a total slog to get through.) Columns are tres Roman, non?

Plus, my history class was a complete and utter bore in the middle, capped with periods of intense interest on either end.

Really, it’s the perfect project to commemorate going back to college and will always remind me of the first class I took on the road to my degree. I’ll wear it with pride.

    OT, but I’m putting together a group to go to the everywomanforobama rally at UCLA on Sunday afternoon. Any interest? I’m sure we could find a way to meet up!
