Book of Secrets

What a fun movie! I thought it was easily as good as the first National Treasure. I love movies where the boy(s) get the girl(s), the good guy wins, the bad guy has a turn of heart and is filmed in great locations in the world, the best, of course, being near where I was born, the Black Hills of South Dakota. If you're looking for some great entertainment that the whole family can enjoy, this is it!

Worked a bit on my Jolly Roger sweater for one of my grandsons. Those are the bottom on the crossed bones on the sides and the lower jaw (minus a few teeth) in the center. This is what I'm aiming for. The pattern is in German, so the only thing I have to go on is the picture and the chart. That's okay, though. I'm using the Harry Potter sweater in Charmed Knits as the basic pattern. It's the same pattern I used to make another sweater so I don't have to worry about construction issues. This is only my second "normal" sweater. I've done some simplistic ones, and an EZ based one in the round. Because of the colorwork, I'm doing this one flat so I'll get lots of seaming practice!

I did some work on the Tomten, too. I'm listening to the most recent book in the Alex Cross series by James Patterson, Double Cross. The Tomten is better to knit (row after row of garter stitch) while listening to this as I really don't want to miss a word of it!

I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
