So Panta? She’s too big for my head! I’d swatched and washed and the whole nine yards! I guess my knitting is like my doily-making…I end up gifting all I make…maybe that’s why my vertically challenged scarf is still not finished? I mean, well, I made that little beanie and I tried it on and I said, um, no, this would best suit someone else…and all the hats and scarves of old…and now Panta...
I meant for it to stay with me, measured it with me in mind even, but I gave it to my coworker instead. No, not the one who leant me her needles, but Kay, whom I work with at the KB branch. She gave me a knitting book not too long ago and had asked if I’d make her a hat. What with my moving and all, it’s been put on the back burner for now (i.e. we still haven’t decided the pattern, much less the yarn!), so the headband is a good temporary fix, I think. It looks cute on her and I’ve asked if she’ll pose for a picture so that I can have something other than the metal mixing bowl version. Maybe I can steal, I mean, BORROW Andy’s higher mega-pixel digi.
WOW! Kay and I almost didn’t make it. We’re both REALLY VERY GOOD at getting lost; especially if we happen to be in RENO or SPARKS, Nevada. We planned on the 4:15pm showing. We finally figured out three rights do indeed make a left at about 4:30pm, but were still nowhere near the theater, so we purchased tickets for the 7:15pm and went off to find Target. You’d think we’d know better than to drive away from our destination after the adventure in navigation that we’d just endured, ri-i-i-i-ght.
After almost ending up in Carson City (about 20 miles SOUTH of Reno), and advice from Kay’s good friend who LIVES in the area, we finally found Target. We had just enough time to jet in, jet out, and then catch the movie…except Kay wanted to go into Linens & Things, and then she wanted a snack, and then I couldn’t remember what street to get off on…Hoo boy.
We made it to our seats, popcorn in hand just as the “Feature Presentation” signal flashed across the screen. A-maz-ing!
As was the movie. Only one little bit I’m totally confused by and will have to start digging around and/or asking others who’ve seen it. Maybe you were confused too? It’s the “flashback/dream/vision” that happens when the quiet one is on the payphone? Anyhow, wow, I really liked it.
And before I forget, cuz I should be sleeping now as I have a LOOOOOOONG work-day ahead of me, ha, later today:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PHIL!!!
