Visual representation of the act of copy editing

My bed mid copy edit . . .

See above: two black Notebooks of Doom (one for Soulless, one for Changeless & Blameless), query list from copy editor, the manuscript in various mounds, Orbit's house style sheet, a copy of Soulless (for referencing), my list of copy edit codes, reference book (for ze spelling of ze French fashions), scissors and tape (for pasting a copy of the Changeless terms sheet into appropriate Notebook of Doom), highlighter (for highlighting very important instructions), and eraser and pencil - since I'm not allowed to use pen. Gasp. Wheeze.

Your Brass Needles photos, sorry I am late

Peru report, scond installment photos. 1. scarves, sox and mitties with various variations on the norm that I thought might inspire. 2. One of the yarn stores, you have to go hunting into the local market areas to find yarn in Peru. If you want anything earlier along the knitting line, like roving, you need to get into the outlands and find a fiber village. 3. A spindle made of iron and decorating the side of a building in Cuzco. 4 Lastly there a loom weight from Inka times dug up on my archaeological site, along with some other pottery fragments. I know it's not knitting but I figured fiber artists might still find it fun to see.
