I'm speeding along on my Owls sweater. I've already completed the body and one sleeve. This chunky yarn is great!
Yesterday morning it was gloomy and rainy - hence the terrible lighting in the above photo. There you see the tiny remnants of my first skein of Ecological Wool. That giant skein got me all the way through the body of the sweater, one sleeve, and the cuff of the second sleeve. So seriously - you can easily knit this sweater in two skeins.
After the rain let up, it was humid and hot - gross. I stayed inside and knit and watched one of my favorite childhood movies: Clueless.
Childhood? Yes, friends, when I saw this movie for the first time (in theaters), I was only 11 years old. And let me tell you, after refreshing my memory, it was not appropriate for an 11 year old. Luckily most of the jokes just went completely over my head - like all the drug references.
Watching it now, though - it is priceless! Really funny and smart, with solid acting & great outfits. Cher (Alicia Siverstone's character) really informed my fashion choices as a teen. Although my skirts were not as short as her's, I still have a penchant for knee socks, and you can thank Clueless for that!
