Hello and a happy weekend to you all !
Regarding knitting, I have been knitting everyday but I'm not going to talk about it much in this post.
You know how busy I am and always behind in most things. Really, instead of Two Cables my name should be more like Knitter-Who-Lives-Under-A-Big-Rock ! LOL ! Hmmm, I like that. In any case, yesterday I finally got a chance to rent Beasts of the Southern Wild. I'm in love ! Watched it twice last night and once this morning. Oh what a movie. My emotions kept running from happy to wondrous to sad throughout. What a culture or should I say sub-culture this movie presents to us. Food for thought and great debate for my friends and I.
Everyone has probably seen it but did you see it yet ? Did you like it or love it ?
As soon as I find it on sale somewhere it's mine.
Ooookay, maybe a little knitting
Remember the cowl I started for my friend Stephanie ? Well, I finished it and though I enjoyed knitting it I began to wonder why I decided to add all the cables. Well actually I know why. Stephanie saw my son's hat and cowl and said she wanted one. I wanted to make hers prettier so I fancied it up with cables. A few days ago I lost count on one of the cables and cabled the row too short then I put it down. When I came back to it I forgot where I was again and cabled an extra row then had to take it down. Headache... Okay I got everything straightened out but after I did the actual bind off and tried the cowl on it was waaay too tall so I had to take down one of the cables. I should have completed the cowl and the hat by now but I just started on the hat a couple of days ago ! GeeWiz or as we say on FaceBook smh ! It's all straightened out and it was all my fault. I have a WIP Wednesday post to do and after that I should be posting Stephanie's completed hat and cowl.
More patterns from Ravelry that I love !
Bear with me if you're familiar with some of these patterns.
I really like the Make-up socks by Kristin Kapur. The Joy of Sox is a book that I coveted but never put any effort into purchasing. These are so pretty though I'd make them a bit longer. Wouldn't they be great just under the knee !
Cora by Andrea Black I love this sweater. I love the cables and the design.
I'm more of a cardi lover but THIS I would make and wear. I'd have to do a few sit-ups before wearing it ! Again, we're talking about minimal cables spaced far apart. This looks like an easy-peasy to me.
Anyway, all of you enjoy your weekend and I hope to see you here this week sometime.
