Movie Monday - 8/4/2014

And So It Goes is a little rom-com about a crusty aging realtor who is used to running the show. He keeps a tight grip on his orderly world until his neighbor and the grandchild he never knew he had shake up his world.  Michael Douglas, Diane Keaton and Sterling Jerins star in this film. Rob Reiner directed.  It was alright.

Clint Eastwood directed Jersey Boys, based on the Broadway musical about The Four Seasons. John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda, Vincent Piazza none Christopher Walken star in the film.  It was very entertaining.  I loved the music.

Doug Block, a documentary film maker, supported himself in between projects by filming wedding videos. Over the twenty years that he shot these videos, he often wondered what happened to the couples after the wedding. In 112 Weddings, he tracked down some of these couple and told the rest of their story. It was good.

MK out.

FO Friday - 8/1/2014

I finished Camp Loopy Project 2 on Sunday and finally got it blocked in time to upload a picture to The Loopy Ewe's site one day before the deadline and to show it off for FO Friday.

In case you didn't know...I used Shalimar Breathless in the Neptune colorway. 

I bought three skeins and ended up needing the third skein for a couple of rows of ribbing and the bind off of the second sleeve.  You know what that means...I have roughly a skein of this luscious yarn left and I can make a nice shawlette or cowl...that may or may not become a gift. It's a win-win in my book.

The pattern is New Wave Cardigan by Mary Annarella.  I really like her patterns - they are well-written with clear instructions.

I've already worn this cardigan.  I know it's now August, but yesterday, I was freezing in my house.  I figured I might as well wear it...isn't that why I made it after all?

I wore it to Knit Night too.  The temps outside were mild and pleasant.

MK out.
