Allison has been knitting the Islas Cruces Cowl in Malabrigo Rios. I love her crosses. They really pop against the white Yarn. I’ll have to remind her to use a color catcher when she washes it. Verdict: She is quite bored with it and ready to be done.
Santa brought her the Purl Soho Embroidery starter kit and she is motivated to learn. Oklahoma is expecting an ice storm this weekend and she can stay in and play with strings in a new way.
We had an ice storm yesterday so we had to cut our visit to our old neighborhood short yesterday. This meant missing a visit with Mom. Mom would be the FIRST to say to get out of that weather and get home. She was the quintessential worrier. The ultimate mom.
This is the time of year I catch up on Movies and some books. We watched Sully the other day. What a great movie. Not for the flying faint of heart. I nearly needed a xanax just watching it. What a great person they depict in Sully. A humble hero.
I also read and skimmed through COCKTAIL HOUR UNDER THE TREE OF FORGETFULNESS, by Alexandra Fuller. It is a family story that is written with wit. I do not know Africa well or Scotland, so I think that those who do would enjoy the book more than I.
Have you seen a good movie? Read a good book? Blog pals are full of good recommendations, I think. Share the love!
