Movie Night

On Friday night, we went out for burgers and then to see Coraline in 3-D. Here we are in our groovy 3-D glasses.

We went to see the teeny little hand knit sweaters made by Althea Crome but the story was captivating, creepy, and visually beautiful. This poor little girl behind us was frightened and shouted "don't go back in there!!" and let out a scream that made me jump (I'd say this movie is too scary for little kids).


Here is a link to the pattern for Coraline's blue sweater in regular big people & little people sizes.


I'm still caught up in dishcloth mania:



But I'm also working on a Lizard Ridge and have about 7 squares done:

I'm also in 3 traveling scarf groups but I keep forgetting to take photos of them (Tweeds, Sock Yarn and Lengthwise (just getting started) as they pass trough!

I have to go see the movie! Thanks for the links, also. The lizard ridge is coming along nicely and I'm anxious to see the end result. Tweeds group is moving pretty slow, my first time with a traveling scarf, but waiting to get mine back!

Gurl we were talking about the knitting in that movie at our knit group yesterday!

Amazing!! I will NEVER (well probably) complain about knitting my Kusha Kusha again on thread or socks on tiny needles! LOL
(I may use that video on my blog too!)

And YAY!!!! You are working on Lizard Ridge!! Go! Go! Go!! :oD

I want to see that movie - but I bet I'll have to wait for pay per view. My husband will never go with me.

I worked on your sock yarn scarf last night. I love the pattern. I'm going to knit a scarf with that pattern myself. Thanks for sending it around.

Your lizard ridge loogs great! It takes a while, but it is worth it in the end.

It did look a little creepy/unsettling. I won't be seeing it. But then again, I won't be seeing ANY movies at a theater for a few years!

Nice dishcloths--that looks like a Chinese Wave in the first one.

Don't like scary movies :0(

But I do like pretty dishcloths :0) And yours are so pretty.

I've been making a Kureyon log cabin blanket for about 6 months now - LOVE IT. And I love your lizard ridge too - will it be all different colours?

Those glasses are quite the fashion statement. Mine were quickly adopted by the kids and have disappeared into the black hole of the playroom -- so much for being prepared for the next TV 3D emergency!

Your Lizard Ridge is so pretty!

Love the dishcloths!! And the lizard ridge will be gorgeous! You girls look like you had fun at the movies too!

Sounds like that was a lot of fun. The tiny sweaters are amazing.

Althea is wearing an Alice Starmore in the video!! (I think it is from tudor roses)

I second MAnda's desire to know the dishcloth colorway...

That was a neat movie! I still can't get over how she knits like that! Go you on the Lizard Ridge, looking good. I've got the yarn, but just haven't started yet...hmmm

Good job on Lizard Ridge! That's a lot of squares to knit up. You have a great start.

I love your lizard ridge so far - fab colours!

I know I'll have to see the movie by myself 'cause my 8 yr old finds the movies made by Nightmare Before Christmas director/producer too creepy/scary for her to watch. That said, she is reading the book though.
