Monday: Movies and Mittens
One-and-a-half Warm Hands. I'm a little concerned with the amount of yarn I have left to complete the second flap, but I'm trying to keep optimistic. I'll either finish tonight or be scrambling to find a yard of gray Donegal Tweed. If I run short, it is going to be only a few rounds. The fingers on the second mitt were easier to make and the fit and feel is better. Pop Up Paws is a great pattern.
I have to get back to working on Shirley Shrugs, but will also cast on for Knit Unto Others -- I think I'm going to use Kate's Gifted pattern. I've become a Jaywalker, also, and would love to cast on for that soon.
Movies! Maddy went to see HP on Friday and Saturday nights; Ali went on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon; Katie on Saturday night. The girls went together, kind of impromptu on Saturday night upon learning that tickets were available -- I love it when they do things together, and it was fun listening to them laughing and making plans. Ali had purchased advance tickets for the Sunday afternoon showing on the ultra screen, but they got there kind of late and ended up in the second or third row; she said, "Yeah, we were in the movie."
On Sunday afternoon, Katie, DH and I saw Capote. Philip Seymour Hoffman is outstanding. Wow. I remember watching Truman on talk shows; PSH nailed it! It's just amazing how an actor can "become" his character; and in that vein, I really want to see Walk The Line and Good Night, And Good Luck (oh look, Jeff Daniels has a role!). (P.S. There was so much smoking in Capote that I could smell it! I have a feeling it'll be much the same in the other two.) It's my kind of movie season!
