Hawkins has a good argument from our point of view and hers, but not from Hal's, because he does literally see an idealized beauty. To be sure, it is exterior beauty, not interior, but how else to express his experience visually? I think we understand to accept the Farrellys' premise as filtered through the realities of the marketplace, in which you do not put Gwyneth Paltrow into a movie where she doesn't look like Gwyneth Paltrow. ( John Travolta played an Abominable Snowman from space in "Battleship Earth," and look how that went over.) By showing the idealized Paltrow, the Farrellys set up the third act, in which Shallow Hal does indeed see Paltrow as fat, and has to deal with how he feels about that. If she had been fat all along in the movie's eye, how could his test be made clear visually? Early and late, we see Paltrow as Hal sees her, which is not an evasion but maybe the point.
I’ve done these shallow post stitches several times. The patterns have referred to these as “post stitch in the stitch”, it is is exactly what you are calling “shallow post stitches”. The post is seperated by the horizontal bars as you obviously know (Sorry, that was a rather redundant statement). Since we often crochet basic stitches “in the stitch” (right under the top “v”) I think of instructions to” bpdc in the next STITCH” as what you call “shallow post stitch”. When I see “bpdc around the next post” I know I’m to go under the horizontal bars and “go long”. I think you called it deep post stitches?
Chunky yarns give a fabulous effect when back post stitches are worked in the stitch (just under the top “v” and
in-betweem the two top horizontal bars)! I LOVE your patterns! You’ve taught me so many new techniques, and the often accompanying video tutorials are what makes me truly “get it”. Thank you for your time, hard work, and generosity. I am SO grateful!
Comments: I'm running 8 footers and love them. They're faster than power poles, quiet, and don't have any issues. I've fished out of a lot of boats that are running power poles and one or the other pole won't come up or go down or something. Seems poles always have some sort of issue. I also love the fact that I don't have pumps, hoses, and hydraulic fluid like what's required for power poles. Here in Florida the biggest selling point to power poles is that JL Marine (power pole) is in Tampa and every time they have a problem they can take the boat there and have it fixed -( Happens a lot)
Minn Kota Talon is a superior product.
