But first, in case you missed it . . .
Knit Happens Online Store is Live!!!!
It only looks as though Lucy is permanently glommed on to the couch in the same spot all the time. She moves. Really.
For example, now that I have a desktop computer again, she spends some time draped over the back of my desk chair whilst I . . . um . . . compute.
Agnes asked what Lucy’s fav tv shows are. Lucy likes old movies — British cinema from the 1940s and 1950s, to be exact. She is a huge David Lean fan.
Aside: Has anyone seen the movie Home at Seven (sometimes known as Murder on Monday in the US)? Made in 1952, it was directed by Ralph Richardson, who also starred in it, along with Margaret Leighton, Jack Hawkins, and Campbell Singer. (I love Campbell Singer, by the way, who played a policeman many times in his career.)
I first saw this movie ages ago on AMC. And couldn’t remember the name of it, or who starred in it. It drove me crazy for a long time, until I found an online message board about British cinema. I posted a brief plot description and within minutes several people supplied me with the title. And one lovely lady offered to send me a U.S.-format videotape of the movie. Which I treasure.
Huh. What brought on that little digression? I dunno. Any other fans of old British movies out there?
Back to Knitting
I did finish the back of the LaLuz top yesterday afternoon, sitting at the back table at Knit Happens.
And I started the front.
I posted yesterday that I was going to do a lace flower motif at the neck — I decided that would be too big, so I’ve got a smaller motif in mind now. Subject to change at my whim.
Ann in CT asked:
Have you stopped naming your original creations? I notice the recent ones have been sort of generic and the names were always so cute.
I think the only one I haven’t named is the cardi I just finished. You’re right — she needs a cute name. She will henceforth be known as Laci.
Now . . . the LaLuz top. Anyone have any cute ideas? Leave ‘em in the comments if you have an idea what it should be named.
The Inishmore Challenge
Not that I doubt your honesty whatsoever, but what would keep one from starting Inishmore a wee bit early?
Well . . . nothing. Except our honesty.
L-B and I are good friends and spend a fair bit of time teasing and harassing each other via email. But I can tell you with 100% certainty that neither of us would even consider starting early. It would kill the fun for us, ya know?
Though one of us (and I’m not naming names here) did threaten to set her alarm for 12:01am on May 16th so she could wake up and cast on. Of course that is within the rules we have set.
Crikey! It’s a good thing we’re both in the same time zone, or this could get ugly!
P.S. to Jen:
Why yes, some people do give a crap about your winding of sheep hair!
