my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

Can you guess where I and my knitting were last night? Hubby was there, too. We were at the same place Sunday night and will be there again on Thursday. Why, yes we are apparently crazy. And I am getting too old for this.

As you can see, sleeve 2 for Ariann grows not a whit. I've been playing too many games on the Nano and not knitting at all during my commute. I bought a new audiobook (The Lovely Bones) last week to try and help. I did manage to get a few rounds done last Friday, so we'll see. (I didn't take the train last night and there's no room on the bus to that place to knit.)

Evenings last week were taken up by sewing. This top's nearly done, but it doesn't fit. The neckline is huge. I think I can fix it by taking it in a bit in the back. The fact that it's a bit narrow through the hips/lower abdomen can be fixed by finishing the belt and blousing (I hope). I really love this shirting and I'd hate to not be able to wear this top!

The Lovely Bones is an AWESOME book. I LOVE IT! There's a movie being made for it- directed by Peter Jackson (who also wrote the screenplay).
Some really good (in my opinion) actors too: Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon, and Stanley Tucci.

Also, I think that shirt would fit me if you can't get it to work out right. ;)
