how does one knit a shawl in 4 days? well ... you cast on saturday, and subscribe to netflix on sunday, and do nothing but knit and watch movies until you bindoff. seriously. that's what i did.
i was not knitting under a deadline. i don't know what possessed me. perhaps it was the needles ? perhaps it was the yarn ? ... and maybe the beautiful pattern ?
i can see knitting (perhaps) another one in the fall, out of kid silk haze, or an equivalent. maybe someday i will knit the nupps vs. adding beads ... maybe ....
netflix though ... my newest addiction. i signed up for the next to cheapest plan (1 movie at a time, unlimited, plus movies online, unlimited).
so, since sunday, i watched online (on my laptop) ... casablanca, murphy's romance, it happened one night, the year of living dangerously, super size me, and the contract ... and via dvd that came on tuesday, ghost world.
am i all "movied out" ? ummmm ... no .... and i still have a socken to finish. wonder what movie i will watch next?
ps. yarn is darker when wet ....
