I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

1. RIPD (rest in peace department) was quite a bit better than I expected. Granted, I wasn’t expecting much given the lame title, but it did entertain me.

2. Ryan Reynolds pulled off the unshaven look really well. He’s kind of clean and pretty, so I wasn’t sure it was going to work, but it did.

3. This movie struck me as a cross between Ghost and Ghostbusters. I liked both of those movies and when this comes out on DVD, I’ll be watching it again.

4. Kevin Bacon made a really good bad guy and Jeff Bridges was quite a bit less annoying than he could have been.

5. Mary-Louise Parker was rocking the go-go boots.

6. If you liked Men in Black 3, I think you’d like RIPD.

7. There weren’t really any knits to speak of, so here’s my current project.

1. I was expecting a good shoot ’em up action flick and I got it.

2. Speaking of it. Helen Mirren has got it. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but she’s got it.

3. My favorite scene involved Byung-hun Lee, a gorgeous blue Lotus and Helen Mirren.

4. The cast was stellar. Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins, Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow from the G.I. Joe movies), Catherine Zeta-Jones. stellar.

5. Anthony Hopkins was wearing what looked like a felted scarf. Other than that, there weren’t really any knits to speak of. There was a lot of fur. I guess it is easier to hide guns under a big fur coat than a knit wrap. That’s not really news.


1. There is a pretty interesting yellow jacket by Spud & Chloe on page 10 (Porch Swing Cardi by Kirsten Kapur), the pattern is in a leaflet….but I’m thinking gray. Oh look, someone on ravelry has already knit a gray one. I do like this. I do. I do!

2. I found the Amy Miller spotlight article on page 42 interesting. I like her style – a mix of fresh and classic.
3. I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the patterns in this issue. I think I could see the cover sweater in blue and white, but I don’t love it enough to put in in my queue.

4. I stand corrected, there’s a gold sweater I really like the front of on page 71 (Midsummer Aran by Ginevra Martin), I don’t know if I see me wearing something THAT holey, but I do like it…what do you think?
