Oh Snap!

Hi Knitters,
Snapdragons that is. My daughter just came in from our neighbors yard wearing these purple snapdragon earrings. That is a new one for me. I have always loved snapdragons but I have never planted any. Gotta put that on my list.

Snap to it, Mary! Mary from Holland, MI, where are you? You have until tomorrow morning when I get up, which is awfully early, to contact me about the DVDs from Knitting Daily. If I don't hear from Mary I will be picking a new winner tomorrow. Stay tuned....
I have been knitting so hard these past couple of weeks. It has been a bit rough. Deadlines can zap the fun right out of things sometimes. Don't get me wrong, the projects are loads of fun, it's the hardcore knitting that is difficult. I still have a ton to complete this week and next. My fingers can't possibly work any faster.

Okay here are some things I am thinking about:

Oh, and I have to say that I just watched a really great movie while I was knitting, of course. It is called, Then She Found Me. It stars Helen Hunt, Colin Firth, Matthew Broderick and Bette Midler.  First things first, I love Helen Hunt. She is so naturally good and believable. My favorite thing about Helen Hunt? Her face that hasn't been artificially altered in any way and she remains glorious and beautiful and refreshing. We don't get to see women age naturally in movies very often any more. Now when you see a woman in her mid-forties looking her age it is something you notice. I love it for obvious reasons and I couldn't take my eyes off her. It is a sweet movie about betrayal and love. The entire cast is wonderful.

That's my two cents on a few things. Mary, Mary, I am waiting on you...
best, susie

I must look out for this film. It's not one I've seen before.

I just had to add this movie to my netflix que!

I'm sure that Colin Firth has nothing to do with your love of this movie ;)

I loved that movie and I agree about women being "allowed" to age gracefully in Hollywood. That's why it was awesome that Glenn Close won the Emmy the other night!
On the flower thing, my Nanny used to do that same thing with me when the snap dragons were in bloom :) and I had forgotten! thanks

Thank you for the movie recommendation! I love Helen Hunt too - I used to never miss Mad About You! And the flowers - sweet!

The flowers are darling! On the scarf du jour, go for it. I've already made two and I'm on my third. I haven't yet tried the hat. I have to give it a try. I'm an intermediate beginner, yup, my own term, and I'm a little frightened of adult hats.
