I have been listening (and watching) videos on you tube too. I am enchanted by the old movie clips and and songs. I wish I had stumbled onto it sooner.....all my old favorites. I though I was the only one around that loved the music and movies from the 30's & 40's. Not true. There are thousands of us out there! I know some folks like to watch old movies occasionally, but I watch almost every day. I never watch regular TV programs. I am always watching TCM or else watching my own DVD collection as I knit in the evenings. Now I can check you tube for more favorites too. What a great time we live in. You can watch whatever you like from the past right now on technology from the future. Isn't it amazing. I think I like that long ago time so much because I spent so many happy afternoons after school watching the Million Dollar Movie and doing my homework while my mom got dinner ready. Then in the summer I would watch the Late Show and even the Late, Late Show with my mom or sister. Those were happy days indeed....long ago and far away.......
I have been busy finishing projects. I just need to finish up the toes on these two pair of socks and they will be finished. I gave the pedicure socks to my daughter and she loved them. Not a great picture but I am using my cell phone and sending to my email. I find this much faster than fooling around with the digital camera and hooking it up to the computer and all that jazz. So if the pictures are not the best please excuse them.
I am just about done with the stole. I love the pattern and the warm color. I have one more skein of yarn left and then I will be done. I have enjoyed this easy intro into lace knitting.
Everyone have a good weekend and enjoy this heavenly weather we have been having. 70's during the day, sunshine, blue skies, and in the 50's at night with stars in the sky. I could stand this all year long.

This is my newest knitting book purchase. There is a project for every month of the year. It has some great patterns and much inspiration. Oh, I just remembered that way back in January I was trying to knit a project a month to put away for Christmas gifts ( did I just mention that word??). Well, needless to say that never happened so maybe this new book will help me keep that dream alive for 2009! I will now make a pledge to myself- I WILL NOT plan on making knitted items for anyone for a Christmas gift. If by chance something works out that way-then so be it. But I will not be knitting like crazy on Christmas Eve to finish a gift for anyone.
I have taught another young girl to knit over the last two weeks and the enthusiasim of this 7 year old is contagious. She is so excited that she knits in the car and in bed with a flash light! How great is that to have so much love for knitting that you will do it under the covers by flashlight? Right now she has a most beautiful scarf in garter stitch with holes and dropped stitches and it is lovely. I love teaching young children to knit and knowing that they will have something that will give them pleasure for years. I am off to knit and then knit some more on my lace stole. Have a great weekend and see aroung the blog soon.
