Well, maybe not anything. I've sunk pretty low in the past though. Every once in a while we will rent a wretched film. Movies like The Fantastic Four, The Ring 2, Alien vs. Predator, there are others, but I'm working on a mental block. It's times like these that I am thankful I have my knitting to distract me from the train wreck on the TV. Last night, RM and I offended our movie sensibilities yet again. We sat through... Doom. I wish I could erase that almost 2 hour horror show from my memory. It was truly horrible. I really wish Karl Urban, the guy who played Eomer Eadig in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy would pick some better movies. Yikes. On the positive side, I got a lot done on my Twist collar. I should be able to finish up today. I did manage to finish up one Jaywalker yesterday. I like the look of the Sock Garden and it is quite comfy. Getting the sock on is a little tight, but it's manageable. Once the sock is on, it's comfortable and warm. I need hurry up and cast on for the second one so that I can have a pair of socks soon. One of my Brittany size 1 DPNs bit the dust while making the jaywalker. It broke totally. I like working with bamboo, but I'm wondering if I should use sturdier DPNs for sock work. I'm not a big fan of aluminum DPNs though. Any suggestions? In other sock news I got the yarn that I'm going to use for my sockapaloooza pal's socks yesterday. I'm planning on using Cascade Fixation in the Harlequin colorway. I'm excited to get started on them, but I think I'll get the second Jaywalker out of the way first. I also want to send a huge thank-you to my Felted SP! I got the package a couple of days ago and am just thrilled with everything. She sent me 3 skeins of Malabrigo in three lovely colorways. I'm dreaming of hats and mittens! She also sent me one of the new orange Chibi's, a knitting diary, and the yarn estimator card. I love everything! Thanks to everyone who sent us good health vibes. SWB feels a lot better. PQL is still feeling a bit down, but is improving. My symptoms have turned into just a cold. Enough to make me feel a little sluggish and sick, but not enough to knock me out, thank goodness. RM feels about like I do. I'm just hoping to kick it before Stitches next weekend!
