For some reason there's been a terribly long run of movies I didn't want to see at the theatre downstairs, which is part of why I made a beeline there on Friday night to see Hotel Transylvania 2. And knit!
Seriously guys, this is huge - I knit through the ENTIRE MOVIE without making a mistake or looking down! I could not believe it. When I sat down, I had a ribbed cuff, and when I got up I had all those gorgeous stripes looking back at me.
Tonight I went to see another movie - The Intern - and was so excited to get back to my sock. Sadly... I only got a tiny little bit farther.
Like, I finished the brown stripe and got two rounds into the turquoise. Colour me sad.
Here's what happened. I jerked my hand awkwardly during the opening sequence and dropped a stitch, then had the sickening realization that I had actually let it unravel down a level or two (I was correct), and I couldn't trust myself to pick it back up and rethread the stitches above it.
I had no choice but to give up and just sit and watch the movie.
And you know what, I didn't shrivel up and die. I ate a lot of popcorn, but that's not exactly the same thing.
(also FYI, both movies were enjoyable. not well reviewed, but enjoyable.)
I kind of want to see Black Mass now... see if I can win two out of three!
Hope you've been having a good week so far and I'll see you tomorrow.
