Movie Night?

Last night we had our first "Girl's Movie Night" at my friend Julie's house. Our plan is to get together on occasion and watch those movies that our husbands would either consider "chick flicks" or just not be interested in. It was great... I brought all my old Interweave magazines in order to lure my pals to pick projects for the new Interweave KAL and we all brought our current knitting projects. We sat there in the middle of an intoxicating mix of yarn, patterns, chocolates, margaritas, chai tea (yummy!), and ice cream. Of course, I forgot to take pictures or else you could see Andee learning to cast-on for a sock, Keri's adorable baby pants from Last Minute Knitted gifts, and Julie's beautiful red Baby Cashmerino socks and new cactus. (You really must pop over and ask Julie about the Cactus!) Unfortunately, sometime after midnight, we realized that we had forgotten to watch a movie but we considered it a success just the same.


I didn't get much knitting done this weekend but I did cast on for the Clementine Shawlette from IK which I am really enjoying and added a few rows to Flair. I have to say that so far I love everything about Flair... the feel of the Blue Sky Cotton, the fit, the pattern... all good.

Your night with the girls sounds like so much fun!
I think it is great that you can make time for yourself with your girlfriends :o)

I found I was perfectly content at home when I made just a little time for myself. Whether it was doing aerobics or quilting on Tuesdays...it was just enough :o)

You look like you're laying on the floor or a couch for your photo. (it looks good, though.)

You're close - I'm "reclining". We're a bit fluish here and that was the most energy I could muster up.

Sounds like a successful evening to me. Both Flair and the shawlette look great! You are a fast knitter.
