Catchin' Up with the Camera

Alrighty, then. First off, some pictures of the progress Joe made last week...


Joe removed most of the plaster in the bathroom - you can see the lath, and underneath that, on the exterior wall, is brick that needs to be removed. Back in the day, brick was used as insulation and fire retardation. The problem is, it's pretty crappy insulation.

Joe, after I'd taken one too many pictures. Taking down plaster is nasty business. Lots of particulate you need to avoid breathing.

Now, on to what I did yesterday. The cats and I did plenty of this...


And I also did a good bit of this...

Most of my knitting yesterday was on Clappy, but I can't show you that. I'm almost done, though! Once I started drinking some wine, however, I thought it safer to work on something that wasn't too important. Top left is my entrelac experiment, bottom left is a cloverleaf pattern, but I think I'll rip it out - looks too funky on size 10s (the only needles I had available downstairs - alas, I was too lazy to just get up and get some others). On the right is a simple moss stitch. I had experimented with the Roman Stripe Pattern Stitch that I saw on Knitty Gritty not too long ago, but it didn't rock my world with this yarn.

Watched a few movies - Something New was a total chick flick, but it was very enjoyable. Plus, Simon Baker? Total hotness. Also watched The Lake House. Didn't want to like it, but I did. Of course, you totally have to suspend disbelief, and the story definitely has its holes. But a very good knitting movie. And, as much as people like to bash Keanu, he's really easy on the eyes.

Also got to see a CLASSIC yesterday that gave me nightmares as a kid. Still gives me the heeby-jeebies...

Today is pretty much more of the same, plus of course Oscar-watching. Call it the weekend of guilty pleasures.

OK, I can't name the "classic movie" help me out here...I'm so movie-dumb, I never get to watch them anymore with a toddler, not unless it has Elmo as the main character....

Love your entrelac! I loved making Lady E. I thought the entrelac to be easy and addicting. I loved The Lakehouse too. A lot.
