So here's a picture of the pocketbook I finished:



And the shawl I started:



I realized I was really bored with hats.

D and I saw Superbad on Friday. It was good, but as usual with a Judd Apatow production (he directed Knocked Up), stunningly crude. He did recycle one joke from Knocked Up, where it was better executed. But I'd still give Superbad an A-.

Then my college roommate came to visit and we all watched Snakes on a Plane. She kept covering her eyes during the extremely fake murder scenes and for a moment I missed my eighth-grade slasher flick buddy, who didn't like Psycho because she wanted more "gore."

Snakes really exceeded my expectations -- if you were okay with its total ridiculousness and implausibility, then it was kind of hilarious and pretty engaging. I'd give it a B overall but a B+ within its genre.

Cute bag!

And I like the colors you're using on the shawl. Can wait to see the finished piece.

I can't wait to see the shawl either!

I'm so behind on movie watching, I haven't seen any of those.

I like your bag.

I'm a Samuel Jackson fan so I'll have to check out the movie.

Nancy seems suspicious of the shawl. Better call George and Bess for backup!

Hee! While Ned trails behind feeling useless ;)

Looks like it's going to be a beautiful shawl.

I knew I wanted to see Superbad after seeing the preview, but I don't think I can subject myself to the Snakes. I saw Samuel L. Jackson being interviewed and mocking his performance.

You're becoming quite the knitter! I like the retro cover of the Nancy Drew book...reading Nancy is how I learnt the word "titian"!

Bearette24 said...

Ah, yes...she is always "the attractive titian-haired detective."

After reading a nonfiction book about Nancy Drew (Girl Sleuth), I'm hooked on her all over again ;)
