Knitting by Judy @ 3:16 PM

Good little knitster, that’s me! I’m working exclusively on E’s socks, I’ve turned the heels on both, and I’m starting up the ankles. And they don’t look half bad, if I do say so myself! I’m sort of on a roll as far as the socks go. I’m afraid to knit on anything else for fear I’ll lose my momentum.

This has been a busy, busy week with something planned almost every night! This morning I paid bills (usually an evening chore) so I won’t feel guilty about indulging in my suddenly expansive social life.

Tonight it’s Knitflix at The Clinton St. Theater. What more could one ask for than knitting and a movie? The theater is leaving the lights partially up for those like me that need to see what their doing. The movie, Royal Wedding with Fred Astaire and Jane Powell, starts at 7:00. (Come early to get the best seats!) And a shout out to the Portland Stitch N Bitch group on Yahoo who not only thought it up, but did the legwork necessary to organize the very first Portland Knitflix, and thanks to Mabel’s Cafe for sponsoring it.

Tomorrow I’m not knitting at Tangle, as I am instead going to a movie with #1 Son. Maybe Charlie And The Chocolate Factory as we’ve both wanted to see this.

If you’ve been paying attention (and I’m sure, gentle reader, that you have), you know that his girlfriend E (of the socks) is camping with her family. #1 Son had insisted that he could drive down to Crater Lake all by himself, and I insisted that he couldn’t. He saw reason and stayed in Portland. His manager at work has been nice enough to give him Tuesday and Wednesday night hours back.

Friday night I’m having dinner with my friend L, who I haven’t seen in way too long.

So that leave Thursday night for a movie with #1 Son. Two movies in one week is way more than I usually see! But somehow I think that a Regal Cinema or the usual reasonable facsimile is not likely to leave the lights partly up so I can knit. 🙂

    • If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
