breaking records

spicy and i watched fantastic mr fox last night and i loved it. i loved it so much that i can almost forgive wes anderson for the darjeeling limited, but not quite. i remember wasting 2 hours of my life watching that movie and shouting at my tv during the last bit, "they're throwing aside their literal and metaphorical baggage so they can move on with life. we get it! you don't have to shove it down our throats for heavens' sake!" anyway, i love how clooney is charming even in fox form. it's definitely the best movie i've seen in awhile.
Allspunup April-May spinalong
i did end up getting 2 braids for the april/may allspunup spinalong and i'm so glad i did. i adore these colors and bfl/silk might be my new favorite blend. i spun and plied all 8oz on sunday, which has to be a new record for me. i ended up with ~300yds of heavy worsted/aran, which isn't great yardage, but i hope it's enough for a decently sized feather and fan comfort shawl. the shine and the drape of the yarn is incredible. i can't wait for it to dry so i can show off my skeins.

  3. That is pretty. I can see the shine in the pictures, and the colors are stunning. Blues are so calming, it's perfect for a comfort shawl.
