1. Wicked. Four words: You. Must. See. This. My sis LA and I went to see it this past Saturday night, courtesy of B, and it was PHENOMENAL! If it's playing in your city, go. If it's playing in a city anywhere near you, go. LA and I were both blown away. It's really hard to describe how and why it is so amazing, which is why you really need to see it for yourself. You won't be disappointed, I assure you.
2. Cozy. Inspired by the adorable bluetooth cozies Nasus made for hereslf and K, I decided to whip up one of my own. My giant green bag, while fabulous in a much loved kind of way, would be a deadly place for my new phone and tiny bluetooth thingy. The Bermuda Triangle comes to mind. Anyway, this is what I came up with:
Considering I didn't follow a pattern and instead completely winged it from the ground up using leftover stash yarn, I think it's pretty cute, don't you? I knew I wanted a single place to keep both items, as trying to find two separate cozies in my bag would be just be asking for trouble. So, I came up with a vague idea in my head, and just started knitting, figuring it out as I went. I opted for a simple pocket design, for easy access. I knit the main piece for the phone, leaving a small window in the front for caller ID purposes and then added the smaller pocket in front for the bluetooth headset- how cute is it, tucked in front there?I'm actually pretty proud of this little thing. What's that saying about necessity being the mother of invention? Yeah. It's true. :)
