so today my daughter and I went to see Flushed Away (we can never miss a cartoon movie no matter how hard I try) ... and I must say, it tore me away from my usual in-the-theatre knitting or sleeping. It was really really inventive and cute - the combined efforts of Dreamworks and the Wallace & Grommit crew. and of course one of the "evil villains" was a Frog!!!
Today's movie knitting was the Kimono Cardigan to Knit from Dovetail Designs, a wonderfully "great project for beginner knitters who can knit and purl". Obviously I can do both with great adeptness, but because I have needed a mindless large project for a while that would eventually be wearable by someone, I succumbed to the lushness of Frog Tree Alpaca in colorway #202 - a lovely oxblood/cordovan. the flash seems to have taken away the richness of the color, but trust me, it's very very deep!
I just got to the point where the body stops and the sleeves get cast on to the body (wonder of wonders, there are only two seams (one on either side) and eventually I will finish it - eventually, I say, since I get easily bored with anything I'm knitting, except, quite possibly, for Fair Isle projects.
We also saw the most incredibly (and incredible) big red cat up for adoption and there was no way we could bring her home - two in this house is more than enough - but boy, I would have wanted her in an instant - always wanted a "Morris" or a "Garfield" - I'm sure (and surely hope)that someone took her.
The card on the cage said that she was found wandering around Harlem and she was possibly 8-10 months old. But boy, was she huge for that age! I didn't get to check very closely, but I think she may have been declawed (oh big mistake) but that might have meant that she was someone's prized pet.
have a great weekend, everyone!
