Pirates of the Caribbean

We took the kids to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest yesterday.

I was a bit worried that it might be too scary for Simon but they both went to sleep last night with no problems.

It was a really good and fun movie. The worst thing about it??? The darned movie was 2.5 HOURS!

Both Simon & Hannah were getting a bit restless by the end but they did great.

I have been knitting but one thing is a surprise swap for the Summer Sock Swap so I can't show you. Suffice it to say it is small yarn and little needles. Thank goodness I only have to knit 1 sock!


I am also knitting the Mystery Stole Along. This is Libby's photo (not mine) but I am almost there. I have knit 1/2 of the photo below but had a little problem unzipping my provisional cast on in lace yarn! I don't have quite enough stitches but I am sure I can fix it with a little "finagling".

I want to see that movie, too. I am SO ready to come home. I wish I were getting in early enough tonight to come to knitting.

I can't wait to see your mystery shawl. I am hanging out at row 9 at the moment. It is a great pattern so far. Hey - I've been meaning to throw this info your way - www.milehighlaceknitting.com - a lace knitting conference in Denver. Just thought you might like to know.....

Oy, I wish I had my $8 back. That movie was terrible!

I thought the movie was too long, too. It wasn't as good as the first one (but I still couldn't turn down the chance to gawk at Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp for a while) :-)

Looking forward to see the movie too. Your Cd is burned, at least, so maybe tomorrow. Gosh how it's raining here *shocked*
Mystery Shawl looks fine, good luck.

Loved Pirates 2, though it WAS long. Kinda liked first one a little bit better as we were just being introduced to each characters' personality...a fun surprise the first time around, totally expected the second time. Shawl is lovely!
