I have had big smiles the past few days in turning over and reading Stephanie Pearl McFee's daily calendar, Never Not Knitting.
Saturday, March 7 read:
"You Know You Knit Too Much When . . .
. . . you'll watch a movie just because you heard there's a good sweater in it."
I find this to be particularly true with period films.
Also there's a TON of scrumptious knitterly goodness in The Village. (I think I remember about half a dozen pieces I wish I'd had the pattern for!)
I wasn't really knitting when I saw The Piano many years ago. I wonder if there are any good knitted items there? (Otherwise, I personally found that movie nearly intolerable. What WAS the Academy thinking with the Oscars that year????)
Also, I was particularly struck by the quote she found to use on yesterday's date.
"All knitterly creation stems from on simple element: yarn. It is the baker's flour, the jeweler's gold, the gardener's soil. Yarn is creation, consolation, and chaos all spun together into one perfect ball." -Clara Parkes
Amen! Couldn't have said in better myself!
