Movie madness

It was movie madness at my house last weekend. First, an old movie with Gregory Peck (*sigh*) and Greer Garson, followed by Bogart & Hepburn on the African Queen, and then Hepburn again with Cary Grant (another *sigh* — but not quite as dreamy) in Bringing Up Baby, but I just couldn’t finish a third movie! Needles were working the whole time.

Knitting: I recently finished knitting the “Beaded Pullover” tank top (without the beads), pattern 16C from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2003. I used a light yellow and white silk/cotton yarn that I’ve had in my stash for nearly 20 years — it feels just wonderful and I can’t wait to wear it. But first, I have to sew the side seams (shoulders were bound off using three needles) and knit a few quick rows around the sleeves and neck.

On the needles now is Sonnet which I am also knitting with yarn that I’ve had for nearly 20 years — two colors of Patons Cotton Top. We’ll see what happens… I just have to use up this yarn!
