I know I said I'd be working on Something Pink exclusively after my mat was finished, but I picked up Holey Cable instead and knit another couple of inches. After all, it would be nice if I could have this sweater before the weather gets too warm to wear it:
I'll be making the neckline a bit smaller than Amy shows in her version. But after all, I don't have cool tats to show off so I can go for a little more coverage. ::wink:: At this point, I have one more full cable repeat to do before splitting for the front & back. It's just taking me a looooong time because I have almost 300 stitches on the needles. Sigh.
I did start another dishcloth:
And that's the extent of yesterday's knitting.
We watched a movie this weekend that I'd like to tell everyone to avoid like the plague. You see, back in 1973, a quirky little cult film called "The Wicker Man" was made. Most notable for the scene of Britt Eklund dancing nude around a hotel room, it is near & dear to my heart for all it's 70's Pagan imagery. (I even have a quote from the film on my sidebar.)
However, the remake of "The Wicker Man" with Nicholas Cage is neither quirky nor endearing. It is boring and boorish - just one long shrug. The head of the island is changed from a Patriarch to a Matriarch (how politically correct of them) and the island's main harvest is turned from fruit to honey....just so the protagonist can be near-fatally stung by bees. Twice.
Sheesh. It's just plain stupid. Period.
But it did serve one purpose. I've been meaning to get a DVD replacement for my old VHS copy of the original and now I'm stepping up the search! ::grin:::
