Is it just me or does anyone else feel a bit like a blind man in the famed fable, The Blind Men and the Elephant when it comes to the Mars landers? A whole lot of speculations and assumptions are being made about Mars based on a very limited amount of information.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not knocking the science, but I just think we need to be a little more cautious before making these assumptions.

Back to regular programming. I finished the first sleeve, except for ribbing, of the V-necked raglan. I’m getting pretty excited now that I’m so close to finishing it. I forgot to pick up some black yarn on my way back to the office from a morning seminar. One more sleeve, and a few more inches on the body, and I’ll be done. I was down to the last 2 skeins of the yarn and decided to finish the sleeves first, and use the remainder on the body, for as long as it lasts. I should have more than enough. Even then, I still want to finish it out with a solid colored ribbing (black).
