Did you see Lost in Translation with Bill Murray? Well, why not - it's fabulous!
Are we bad parents for re-creating the Suntory Times scene with Drew on Prom day? The white jacket just cracked us up - a'ring-a-ding-ding! Seriously, the senior boys were all very sharp looking in their school-mandated get-ups. The funniest couple was a female German exchange student with a VERY low-cut dress letting the bosoms hang free, escorted by her 22 year old German boyfriend, who was wearing a (gasp!) black tux with sand-colored boat shoes. He was offered a boutonniere by a nervous teacher in an attempt to have him match the other senior escorts, but to no avail. Those crazy 22-year-olds!
Aside from all that titillation, I was deeply enjoying great progress on my Stella pullover (the only online knitting pattern I've ever PAID for). Have I mentioned that I've been working on this since my California trip 2 months ago, and have ripped and restarted it about 10 times?
Look at that lacy pattern with the raglan shoulder - I was almost ready to put the sleeve stitches on waste yarn (whatever that means) and start the eyelet pattern.
Then I noticed something funny - do you see it? How could it possibly be?! I started this per instructions about 8 times knitting back and forth, then decided I'd start it in the round to avoid the big gap. I was SO CAREFUL to be sure the stitches weren't twisted, but DAMMIT - apparently they were.
I haven't frogged it yet - I'm hoping someone can tell me a magical way to make it right....like when you miss a yarnover one row back, and all you do is pick up that bar of thread when you get to it on the next row - something easy like that. This pretty much ruined my whole mood yesterday, so I'll just wait here till I hear some good news...aaaany minute now.....
