A place for my knitting ramblings ...


I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of the train ...

So, was it just me or were the Oscars kind of boring this year? John Stewart was funny, but not hilarious. I hadn't seen most of the nominated films, so that could have been part of the problem. And the ones that I had seen - didn't win. (Except for Diablo Cody - YAY!)


What was the deal with, like, ten songs from Enchanted being nominated and they were all CRAP!? The Moldy Peaches - now there is a quality, Oscar worthy song-writing team! Just for the record, I loved Juno. And Persepolis was fantastic! Go see them both, if you haven't already.


Matt made some delicious cheese fondue for the occassion. Barb & Mel came over. We had some adult beverages. We all did some knitting. So, it was a fun evening, nonetheless.

I think the Kimya Dawson and Moldy Peaches songs weren't eligible for Oscars because they weren't created specifically for the movie. I absolutely love the Juno soundtrack!

Hi again,
The big cable scarf is delightful to knit as it's so rewardingly quick! Have you knit the Big Cable hat mentioned in the pattern? I found this one that might "go" with it.
