Thursday, I stopped by one of the LYS and purchased this…
and this. The book has several Native American Fair Isle motifs in it that I would like to try and make something with. I think red and yellow will go good with that. It’s a wonderful book and not a bad pre-tax price of $19.95.
Yesterday, a friend and I went to see War of the Worlds. I’m not a big Tom Cruise fan even before his stupid-ass remarks to Matt Lauer on The Today Show, but the special effects in this movie are great. Steven Spielberg is a wonderful director. The two things I didn’t like about the movie are the little girl’s almost constant screaming (I know, I know, she’s a little girl) and the way the movie seemed to end all of a sudden. I thought there would be a Mother Ship or something. I guess if I had read the book or saw the first movie, I would know better.
Just finished my first attempt at a Fair Isle motif (not from the book above). It’s not going to be used for anything, I just wanted to see how I would do. I thought it was kind of fun, but the two yarns getting tangled got on my nerves at certain times. There are a few mistakes in the second from bottom pattern. Over all, I wouldn’t mind knitting something using a Fair Isle pattern. Tonight, I think I’m going to cook a Tater-Tot Casserole (how red-neck does that sound, right?) and a salad. It’s actually quite good. This evening will again be a DVD re-watch from my DVD stash. Tonight’s selection will be Maurice which, as you probably know, is another Merchant-Ivory movie. Rupert Graves (as well as Hugh Grant) is in this movie and it goes without saying that Rupert Graves can… Well, we finally have a day that isn’t calling for rain from the several hurricanes already this season. Don’t get me wrong, we can always use the rain since we were (are) in a draught for several years, so that being said, I’m out to cut my grass before I’m run out of the neighborhood or I get a notice stating my queer card is about to be revoked. There are a lot of other sistas that live in the neighborhood. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. See ya.
