A Little Box of Knitting
Posted by thedarwinexception on July 9, 2008
So I finished one of the sweaters for the fair. I just completed the booties and hat on Monday. I’m not sure if this will be entered in the “3 piece layette – knitted” or not – I guess I’ll decide after I get all the choices done. You can only enter one item into each category -and I want to enter the strongest pieces that I have in each of the categories, and I’m not sure if this is it.
It’s cute, and pretty and all that, but I don’t know. I guess I’ll let you all decide.
But here is the sweater, hat and booties. No buttons as of yet – I hate picking out buttons.
And, of course, I started another sweater. Now *this* sweater I LOVE. SOOOOOOO pretty. I am making out of my much loved Dale of Norway Baby Ull. Maybe that’s why I love the sweater so much. The colors are deep and rich and luscious, and the yarn itself is so soft and luxurious. It’s a beautiful deep red color with a hint of purple. I just love it.
So – in other news, Malone got a Redbox! Can you believe it? I was shocked. Redbox is great -and I’m sure they are giving the monopoly that was Movie Gallery a run for their money. Movie Gallery took advantage of the fact that they were pretty much the only game in town – in a town with no movie theater. Their New Releases were like $5.00 a night. Redbox has all new titles – and they are $1.00. And you know, I’ll pay a buck to see new movies! Of course, now I can get rid of HBO, Showtime, The Movie Channel, Starz, and all that other crap on my TV that I never watch. Well, maybe not Showtime – because I love and adore “The Tudors“.
Know what else I have found that I love?? “The Baby Borrowers“. Oh my God – how awesome is this show? Give a bunch of teenagers a bunch of babies and watch the hilarity that ensues! Of course, they could have called the show “Life in Malone” – or they even could have just come here and filmed a bunch of our teenagers with their kids, right? Only the houses wouldn’t have been so nice. And our teenagers wouldn’t have been able to give the babies back at the end of the show. “It’s not TV – it’s birth control!” is their sort of “tagline” – and I’m guessing that’s about right. I think the high school here should show episodes of “The Baby Borrowers” in like mandatory assemblies. Make it required viewing.
But, I’m sure no one here is watching “The Baby Borrowers”. Too close to home for most, I imagine. And probably everyone is busy renting movies from the new RedBox. (WooHoo – I’m still excited about that – it doesn’t take much, people.)
So, I’m busy knitting – I have about 2.5 weeks to get everything ready for the fair, so I’ll be knitting away. Knitting and watching Redbox movies.
