....Sweaters!! We went to see Narnia on Friday night. In a word... AWESOME!! I knew it was going to be a good movie when the opening scenes had gorgeous handknit sweaters in them. I loved these books as a kid and was not disappointed in the movie. I bought Daniel a set of the books a few months ago hoping he'd read them before the movie come out. Now I want to read them again. Dan had never read them and thought it was one of the best movies he'd ever seen. Joe faked that he didn't like it because he wanted to see King Kong (yeah... that's why he was so engrossed in it for the entire 2 1/2 hours).
Last year I shared Joe's engineering talents with your and here's this year's efforts towards Habitat For Gingerbreadmanity:
I also shared a mini stocking pattern last year that Nilda thought everyone might like to see again. If you click here and scroll down to October 26th, you'll find the free pattern for a great little stocking. Some friends and I made a bunch of these to send down to Iraq when their husbands were deployed last year. They are the perfect size for putting a chocolate bar or a few small treats into. I think I was down to about an hour each after I had the pattern memorized.
And lastly I have a FO to share. It's just a simple dropped garter stitch scarf using a strand of purple mohair and a strand of Knit Picks sock yarn. I knit three rows and on the forth row, I knit but wrapped the yarn around the needle twice instead of just once before pulling it through. Added a little fringe and you have a scarf perfect for any teenager:
