Don't tell my sister, but instead of jumping right back into her Clapotis after finishing the Fortune Cookies, I went back to my Wicked.
Wayne and I rented Transformers and Pan's Labyrinth* over the weekend and I wanted to concentrate/read the subtitles so I thought a little st st would be ideal. But then I started looking over the pattern and what's left to be done and I could be finished very soon if I apply myself.
I can taste it. So I'm going for it.
I don't feel guilty 'cause I've got until January to finish Erin's Clap and I know I can do both. Now the cautious, bride-supporters among you would say, 'Can't you just finish the Clap and then knit your Wicked??' I could, but there was a day 2 weeks ago where it got down to 60 degrees and I think it may happen again (although today's high is 92) and I want to be prepared.
Prepared with a sweater.
A sweater with 1/2 - 3/4 length sleeves, 'cause let's be honest, even if it gets chilly, it won't be that chilly.
So don't tell Erin and I'll be seeing you soon with one finished sweater.
* Wayne was talking to me the other day about movies and said, "You know what movie I never saw, but wanted to?"
And I said, "No, tell me."
"Labyrinth, it's supposed to be creepy, but not too creepy."
I was a little confused so I said, "Labyrinth? With David Bowie? I guess I wouldn't let Ali watch it, but it's not that bad."
He stood by his statement of creepiness though.
Only while walking through Hollywood Video on Saturday night did I realize he meant Pan's Labyrinth. :)
