A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

February 6, 2005


I went to the shop yesterday to teach my Socks on Two Circulars class only to discover that it's not until next week. Well, poo. I had made plans to see The Aviator* with Jill later in the afternoon. So I stopped back by the house for a little while and then hunkered down at Cupcake Royale for a few hours before the movie. I worked some more on my first Sockapalooza sock (how long have I been knitting this thing anyway?) and my Flower Basket Shawl (over 200 stitches on the needles and miles to go before I sleep). After the movie we met up with Molly and another knitting friend for a yummy dinner at La Carta de Oaxaca. Worth the hour-long wait. Mmmmm.

Today I'm off to work. I have some photos still stuck on my camera that I will try to shake loose today. Or, if you're really unlucky, I'll post another movie meme--which I just learned is pronounced to rhyme with seam.

*The movie was wonderful but I had a few quibbles. The editing just didn't seem up to snuff. Thelma Schoonmaker has cut many of Scorsese's films (like my favorites Goodfellas and Raging Bull) but this film had some very choppy moments and continuity glitches. I also think Scorsese is far more exuberant in capturing Hughes the filmmaker than Hughes the plane-maker.
