Let’s do some random.

Guess who has his own IMDb page?

#2 Son!


His page may not get any bigger, though. He is no longer the assistant colorist, having been promoted to being the engineer for the firm. Now he is the guy responsible for making sure the million-dollar machines work properly, plus being the all-around computer guy. He loves this, and it suits his talents and temperment better. Win-win.

 Speaking of #2 Son, he and GF participated in the Smooch! project.


If that isn't endearing I don't know what is…

Why, yes, all the men in my life have beards. Doesn't everyone?

Yesterday was the first day I sat on the deck and knitted. It was glorious.


It was actually a brilliant sunny day, but I waited until the sun went behind a cloud to take a photo. Otherwise my iPod camera would have shown you washed-out sunny areas and blacked-out shade. I was way too lazy and lace-obsessed to go into the house and get a proper camera.


The shawl for GF is no larger than the last time I showed it to you but not for lack of knitting. I have knat the last inch of it at least five times, maybe more. Yesterday, however, for the first time I felt like I was beginning to be able to read my knitting. That column of stitches that runs up through the center of the lace/pine cone motif? It should continue through the solid stockinette and become the center column of the subsequent lace/pine cone motif! Hallelujah and praise jeebus! If it doesn't (as happened on the right-hand half of the shawl) there is something wrong.* When I take my coffee and knitting out to the deck today** I hope to be able to break through the barrier that seems to hover around row 42.

I finished a scarf and two pairs of socks since I last caught you up on my knitting, but they all remain to be photographed. You will have to wait with bated breath for another post on those.

Smokey got himself a new watch.


Okay, now, all you former hippies: what is that watch face a replica of?

Look familiar?

Vw speedometer

Vw microbus

* * * * *

Did I ever show you this?

Licence plate

* My eternal thanks to the commenter who suggested putting a marker between pattern repeats. That tip is the one that enabled the knit-reading.

** Or not. Today is 60˚ and cloudy. I may be knitting in the porch instead.::le sigh:: It's a tough life

    Love the watch!
    I am going to enjoy every minute of this glorious SUNNY (remember sun?) warm (26’C) day as I will be in a hot kitchen for the rest of the week. Wish I was knitting on the porch!

    Does the odometer on the watch work? That would be so perfect…

    You had sunshine? I think we’ve had 6 hours in the last ten days. I am tired and crabby. I have no dryer, so I cannot wash clothes. We have flash flood advisories.
    Andyeah, everything else great whatever. Because I have had no sunshine! Imdb is awesome!

    Where did Smokey find that watch? It’s fabulous.
    An IMDB page! Sweet!
    That smooch face though – he looks pained!
