H and I spent the afternoon yesterday cruising around Glendale. We hit a yarn sale and Borders. As we were walking back from Borders, looking for a place for lunch, we saw a Mann theater. We didn't understand why it was so quiet, since it was Saturday and there had been all these stories about the big crowds for Pirates. "It must be a trick," I said. No trick, we waltzed into the 2:50 show at 2:50. My review of the movie: pretty good. The first movie is still the best of the three, but 'At World's End' is so much better than the 2nd Pirates movie. This movie actually had a story. I figure you either like the Pirates of the Caribbean genre or you don't. Personally, I like them (and Johnny Depp). It was a good time, a fun afternoon w/ the kid.
This is the Lotorp bag from Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton's book Noro Revisited. I highly recommend this book. Anyway, yesterday I saw a Lortorp made in Noro Iro that I really liked. Naturally, I had to dig out my yarn and the book to start knitting this right away. I'm using color #66.
Enjoy the long weekend. Memorial Day always feels like the official kick-off to summer. see you at the BBQ~
