Knit 1, Purl 2, Zach Braff: I love you!

I am making myself a promise RIGHT NOW:

after writing this blog I am NOT getting online anymore (unless it has something do with the first paper due this Wednesday evening for Film).

Speaking of Film, I am (will be) writing a 'scene analysis' paper discussing the last 3 minutes of Garden State (2004). Or at least I believe it will be over the last three minutes--I might chose a different part--like the "original moment" it really all depends on which has the most for me to write about.

If you haven't seen GARDEN STATE (written by, directed by, and starring Zach Braff) you need to make a note and plan on watching it as soon as possible. It's a fabulous film--with a wonderful Oscar Award-winning soundtrack. If you have seen it, isn't it AWESOME?

Another Reason Why I love October:

06) Knitting. I was first introduced to this hobby by a former roommate (I miss her!) It's like Yoga, because you get to settle your mind BUT you create something unique and special in the process. As you can imagine, it is quite difficult to be motivated about KNITTING (secret link to my favorite knit-related blog) in our long, hot summer--but come Fall I am ready for my knitting needles.

I've knitted baby booties and blankets, several purses (!!) along with enough scarves to keep a lot of necks warm. In fact, I just finished a scarf for a friend (first project of Autumn 2007), and I hope to start a cardigan for a certain little boy soon. (I wish I was better at following patterns--but I'm not)

Hooray for Knitting!

p.s. BEST local yarn store in Memphis? STASH (formerly The Yarn Studio) located in the Cooper-Young District of Midtown. You'll be hard pressed to find a nicer group of knitters in the city!

i have a hard time knitting in the hot weather too, but when it gets cool out i love to knit blankets. sitting on the lounge with your half knit blanket across your legs is the best.

Yes--I'm up for knitting, too (though it has to cool down first), and what's better than a movie about my adopted state?
