My New Crush

Hey, hey Paula, I wanna marry you...

I'm digging Paula. Even though Lara has inspired a knitalong. I'm not sure she's the girl for me. But Paula...well, I'm sweet on her. I'm thinking of using the pale blue cotton angora I bought for Mia. I know I swore eternal devotion to Mia but that was before the never-ending tedium of k2 p2 knitting that is the Candy Sam. Sam is nearing completion. I have about 40 rows left on the last sleeve. And only 5500 stitches for the collar. Not that I'm counting or anything.

I had to miss Ryan's talk at the knitting guild last night. I was very sorry to miss it but I had a wonderful opportunity. Wes and I got to see a free sneak preview of Vanity Fair. And Mira Nair was there. She is passionate, witty and charming. Exactly what I had expected given her work. The film is gorgeous and very interesting. I can't wait to see how disappointed all the teeny-boppers who only know Reese Witherspoon from Legally Blonde will be when they pony up their $9 in September.

At work tonight I spent the entire four hours checking in and pricing an order of Addi Turbos. Four hours. There were hundreds of them. If you're in Washington and want an Addi, head to the Fiber Gallery. I can't imagine there are any left anywhere else in the state.
