What do you knit at the movies?

Yesterday I went to Purl Soho to buy yarn for the Red Scarf Project.  I was really good.  I walked out of the store with only the yarn I needed for the scarf.  The trouble is, I walked back in.  I just couldn't leave the crisp, green and white Lorna's Laces behind.  I also had to stop into their new fabric store.  Yum!  There were so many glorious prints.  I was a good girl and only bought a little, to make myself a tote.

I took my kids to another bad teen movie today.  An event like that requires knitting.  Nothing like the mindless spiral of a stockingette sock for a dark theater.  New yarn and a bad movie, perfect together.  Sprinkled liberaly with popcorn of course.


I should have been working on my final project for UFO August, Jaywalkers in Lorna's Laces Shepherd's Sock, color Vera.  Today's the 30th, after all, only 1 day left of August.  I think I can sneak in the knitting time to get them done.  I've already turned the heel, just a quick gusset, then smooth sailing to the toe.  I'll get some time in watching Project Runway tonight.


For the curious, here's the yarn I picked up at Purl for my Red Scarf Project scarf.  It's going to be striped.  They want unisex colors and patterns, so I'll do some sort of broken rib.


Finally, I've gotten an e-mail from Kathleen that she finished her version of my Sunkist Cardi.  This was pretty exciting for me.  It's the first time I know of that someone has knit one of my free patterns.  I'd like to start a gallery of things people have knit from my patterns.  So If you do knit any of them, send me a photo and I'll add it.  Kathleen's will be the first.

I can see why you went back for the LL - it's lovely. I haven't knit DURING a movie yet, I'm not quite up to knitting in the dark. And those lighted needles scare me. But I do like to bring socks to work on while waiting for the lights to go down.

oh i am always drooling over everything on purlsoho's website! hope you make it for UFO august with the 'vera' socks! :0) x

Love the green yarn, it's beautiful.

I love the green and white socks! What a brilliant color.

Lovely Jaywalkers (yes, wrong post, I know). Are you going to show us the fabric you bought? Inquiring minds want to know!

Oh I love the green/white yarn! And how lucky you are to actually get to GO to Purl Soho. Me...I've spent a number of lunchtimes at their website.

Purl Soho has fabric now too???!!!! Oh my god, I'm in trouble...
