Knitting in Neverland
I didn't actually do much knitting over the weekend, but I saw some at the movies. I know I'm not the only one who notices knitters and knitting at the movies! Mdd and I went to see Finding Neverland. Right off the bat, I noticed the boys' tams, very cute 2- or 3-color tams. I really loved Kate's tam-like hat, later in the movie. I also saw a sweater that I liked. All in all, I enjoyed the movie much more than I thought I would. The boys just melted my heart. I think I'm a lot like young Peter.
I did go shopping. Ai had this dress on hold and we had to pick it up on Saturday or risk losing it. As it was, all the others in this style were sold by the time we got there. Apparently, my charge account at this particular department store expired some time ago, so I opened another in order to save 15% -- in this case, it isn't chump change! Since I saved 15% on any other purchase that day, it was time to replenish perfume. And I found a new jacket -- Jones New York, chocolate brown, very similar to what I've been wearing the past few years (also JNY). It was on clearance -- a $150 jacket marked down to $29.99 and 15% off of that! I got my current jacket on sale, too, I'm sure, but not that much!! Woo. I don't really like shopping all that much, but this kind of stuff could change all that!
I did work on Ai's Goldie sweater -- I've probably got about six inches and the back will be finished. Last night, I cast on some baby blue variegated Sugar & Cream to play around with the Mister Dashwood ideas I've had (picture tomorrow). I thought my mods to the brim might still be too ruffly and girly, but Ai said that her baby boy would wear it, if she had a baby boy. Let's not go there, okay?
In other news, not only did I go to the grocery store yesterday, I also made supper! Hm, yeah, it's been a while.
Thanks for all the responses to my Saturday morning query!
