First off, I realize that I created some confusion on Friday by declaring Hexipuff victory. "Hexipuff" is the nickname for the honeycombs you knit up to make a Beekeeper's Quilt. You only need approximately 3,579,212 of them for a small quilt. They are the current rage sweeping through Ravelry (well, we may be on the tail end...Color Affection/Affliction/Infection is the latest to claim thousands of victims). This happens a lot in the Ravelry community, it seems. Some simple, but clever, pattern appears and "everyone" has to knit it. This is the kind of thing I avoided like the plague once I got past junior high...in fact, I'm immediately suspicious of anything that's that popular. Like someone must be rubbing snake oil all over whatever the latest craze is in order to lure so many people to it. But the prospect of doing something with all those leftover sock yarn bits was appealing to me (since I've finished SO many socks and all /sarcasm). At least, that's the theory...you just knit some hexipuffs with leftover sock yarn, keeping your stash nice and neat. That is, unless you succumb and start buying custom made mini skeins.
So, the weekend! We had two outings to the Fox for the Summer Movie Film Festival.
Mighty Mo organ. The sing-along has gone downhill a bit, too; it used to be all "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" and "It's a Grand Night for Singing"...now it's "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "Georgia," if you're lucky.
The Princess Bride was also fun...gosh, I love that movie! Although I almost had to punch the couple behind us...they were speaking at normal volume, without even turning their heads to each other. The kids in front of us and to our left, we couldn't even hear.
