Illness and Lethargy

Are acting against us tonight.

Jen and Amber are definitely out, and I should probably work a little late tonight, so let's take a by this week.

There's Neil Gaiman and knitting and buttons for eyes.

Plus, it's in 3D.

Since you guys were talking about going to see Coraline in lieu of knitting this week, I looked up some showtimes:

AMC Rosedale: 6:35

Regal Brooklyn Center (not 3D!): 6:45, 9:10

Block E (not 3D!): 6:50, 9:20

Southdale: 6:40, 9:10

MOA (not 3D!): 6:55, 9:15.

Personally, I'm partial to the 6:35 at Rosedale showing -- can you guys make this? (one of you city types will have to give Will a ride).

Guys, if we cannot talk about BSG tonight, I don't even know how I'll otherwise go on. If you haven't seen it, I don't know... come late or something. Or, we'll knit you some earmuffs.

I don't have internets during the day but I'll be home around 4:00 and can check back here to see if we're still on or what.

Exciting things!

  1. It's Tuesday, which means we'll be knitting, y/y?
  2. Yarnover is coming up in April, and the deadline for signing up for classes is this week. Amber and I are definitely going, and you should check out the brochure and come with (or at least plan to hit the vendors!)
  3. Knit-Out at the MOA - Feb 14 and 15. This was fun 2 years ago, and hell last year. I'd be willing to try it if we planned on getting there _early_ (like, 9am since they start at 10).
  4. BSG is back to being the best show on TV (says the girl who isn't actually watching any other shows on TV right now, but honestly...what could beat that?)

Something to ponder.

I was recently gifted two skeins of Tilli Tomas worsted silk, about 500 yards. I would like to do some kind of small wrap or larger scarf, preferably lacy. I really like Clapotis but I only have ~half the recommended yardage. So, I'm open to ideas. I don't know, maybe it needs to be a little bag, or a fancy pillow.

I will bring the yarn on Tuesday!

ETA: Ooooh, this might be perfect. I may just get it!
