Not Quite Fifty Shades of Grey

Yes, I am one of the millions who has read this trilogy.  And I am also one of the million who enjoyed the read.  I do have to laugh at what seems to be a national  epidemic of titillation over the sex in the books.  There is sex beyond the mainstream.  But is this the hottest I’ve ever read.  Well, if you read Laurell K Hamilton, she has more and hotter sex and has for years.  Beyond the sex, there is an actual plot to follow along with, one that is interesting.  Anastasia and Christian are characters you come to love and care about.  After reading the books, it is fun to join in the second wave of frenzy – “Who would play Christian in the movie version?”   Lots of really good day dreaming come out of that.  Personally, Benedict Cumberbach has my vote.

However, everyone needs a bit of Christian Grey in their lives.  So I created mine….

P6210010  I knitted another monster.  This is 49.5.  He’s not quite 50 shades of grey.  I have the unruly copper hair and the silver tie.  I have had a lot of fun showing him off.  I did stop short of buckling him into the car – tightly.  A girl can dream, can’t she?
