On Sunday I stopped by my local yarn shop to take advantage of their birthday special. After they ring up your yarn, you pick a chip out of a bowl and receive the discount on the chip. My chip was for 20% off. I bought a couple skeins of Katia Tobago, which is 100% cotton. I'm knitting a boring old kitchen cloth and enjoying it tremendously.
You also get to pick a free cloth project bag from a selection made with vintage-looking fabric. I love this soft rose pattern.
I'm still reading Pride & Prejudice sequels and spin-offs and showing no sign of slowing down. Recently I watched the movie from 1940 with Lawrence Olivier as Darcy. It was entertaining, but a little silly. They changed an important part of the story, which was hard to swallow, and the actress who played Elizabeth, Greer Garson, looked to be in her mid-thirties. She was gorgeous, but not quite right for the part.
Last of all, I went to see Eat Pray Love. It was good, but much lighter than the book. The one thing that has remained with me is Javier Bardem, who gave an excellent performance.
Well, that's what I've been up to you. Anything new with you?
