When I walked into “Gender Stitchery: Artists Sew/Knit Art,” Carleton’s new art gallery exhibit, I was expecting something a bit more conventional. After all, sewing and knitting are practices that have long been more closely tied with traditionalism than with experimentation. But the exhibits on display are avant-garde, even bizarre. There is an 11-foot-long knitted jumpsuit, made to fit an impossibly tall human being, dangling from the ceiling like a limp windsock. In another work, a print of two Victorian ladies walking has been embroidered over to replace their faces with tribal masks. Then there is the quilt-like patchwork of two squirrels with the head of boys shooting each other with orange fuzz.

Toff, Carleton's campus cat, turned ten on Monday. His birthday was celebrated by birthday cake in the dining halls and a special display in the bookstore of "Toff's List," recommended reading for anybody who is a fan of Toff. They included such titles as Life is Meals by James & Kay Salter, and Dump Him, Marry the Cat, by Andrea Donner. Postcards of him reclining next to Schiller were also available for 60 cents.
From the staff of Shout, we all wish you a happy birthday, Toff!
