Despicable Me

Aha! Bought the movie on Thursday and I haven't stopped watching it yet, it's brilliant! The comedy is amazing, and I adore those minions! I've already discovered a knitting pattern for one on Ravelry which shall be knitted, this week I guess. Though how many people noticed the wonderful knitted textures used?

Seriously, Gru's scarf, Edith's hat and jumper, all look wonderful, and I'm very tempted to try them out.

I also found a cute vintage style cabled tshirt pattern in the latest issue of KnitToday. That said I did buy a fantastic vintage knitting book on ebay, my guess is it's from the 40's seeing as it talks about spending coupons, definately the make-do-and-mend era. It's a shame that the book got so neglected though, as my guess it's been in a garage or attic, but for 99p you can't really grumble. I really think that women of that era looked so glamorous.

  • I have to finish the cabled bag I finished knitting before Christmas, it needs lining, I'm going to buy some nice ribbon to sew along the handle/strap of the bag.
  • Finish knitting the owl cushion, just the back to do.
It's time to start thinking about Fiance's Christmas sweater (must complete sooner!) so far I'm thinking a baseball top like sweater, I do think that would be fun, as he loves his baseball tops, but they arent exactly the warmest things around, especially if we have another Christmas like the last one! It don't want to continuously knit him stripey sweaters, and the bugger wont wear any intarsia or cables. Perhaps I should draw some up! I knitted his last sweater in Stylecraft DK, so I think I'll use it again as it's a very nice yarn.

And as I want to diminish my stash I think I'll knit some mittens, funky patterned mittens!
