Whew, what a busy weekend. Yesterday we went to the casino with friends - and won enough to pay for our food and drinks. It was great to come home with the same amount of money that we had left home with! Today we got our Christmas tree, and then I took Pea to see a movie he's been dying to go see. Can I just say, before we went, I didn't quite see the appeal of this new Bond. Less than five minutes into the movie I had totally changed my mind. This guy is my favorite Bond yet. By far. I think I'm still swooning.
Pea got a really good laugh at me on the way to dinner after the movie. One of the main ladies of this film is named Vesper. Which, unbeknownst to Pea, immediately makes me think of sock yarn. So, as we talked about the movie, I said something about "Vesper's sock phone"!!!! Yes, I meant to say cell phone. Those Freudian slips are slipping in again!
Anyway, I do have some knitting to share. I finished my hat for the Soaring Eagles Project.
Chunky Cabled Beanie
Cast On: 6 December 2006
Completed: 7 December 2006
Yarn: Wool-Ease Chunky, Charcoal
Needles: Knit Picks Options size 10 1/2 (magic looped)
This was a fun and very quick knit. The picture isn't the best, but it makes a really cute hat with bulky yarn. I had forgotten how much fun it could be to knit a project on 10 1/2 needles. I also managed to teach myself to cable without a cable needle (so fun!!!). If I do finish the Christmas knitting already on my list, I'd like to make a couple more of these as presents. The chances are slim, but we'll see. You can find out more about Soaring Eagles by clicking the button below!
