What I Have Been Knitting

For my mindless recovery knitting, I started the Aran Pocket Shawl from Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oblerle.

I am knitting it in Heilo that I got on sale from Loose Ends Yarn Shop in a nice deep blue. it is coming along nicely and is really VERY mindless.

I have not picked up my Shelagh sweater since surgery but will get back to that soon. I had started the Mystery of the Stole KAL and finished the first hint and printed out the second hint but, that takes real concentration and I am just not up to that right now.

I start Chemo treatments on Monday so I will loose my hair in a couple of weeks so I suppose I should do something about hats for a while and I will have to look into wigs too I suppose....

Hey, on a lighter note, what is your favorite funny movie? Laugh out loud or witty and amusing?

Pie in the face slapstick or really funny dialogue? I think that will be part of my therapy to watch funny movies. I must say that my taste in funny movies is different from my son's taste. They think pretty gross, sophomoric things are funny and I really don't think that passing gas is eternally funny but That May Just Be Me! Anyhow-comment and tell me what you like-maybe I can get some new titles that will be a wonderful find, or maybe I will be reminded of the really funny ones I had forgotten!

Talk to you soon,


The more you find out about the world, the more opportunities there are to laugh at it.

Bueller?...Bueller? Always makes me laugh!

TM said...

I love "What about Bob?" There is a line about peace and quiet that makes my LOL every time.

TM said...

Two more:
"Young Frankenstein"
Can you tell I like comedies?

Lynda said...

Yeah Ferris Bueller is one of the greats. I love Young Frankenstein and I don't thinks that Bill Murray has made a mistake in film in 20 years. What about Groundhog day?

War of the Roses (a bit dark though)

I haven't checked your blog for a while. Sorry to hear about the cancer. My favorite funny movies are "Snatch"--witty and "O Brother Where art Thou" You like the Coen Brothers movies, anyway, don't you?

Was stunned to see your latest posts discussing chemo so I searched back to see what happened. Yes, it's been far too long since I had time to check blog posts. Will certainly keep good thoughts for you!

As far as funny movies go, I love those old Cary Grant movies like Arsenic and Old Lace and Bringing Up Baby.

Knit On!
