We watched Night at the Museum last night. What a fun movie. It sure beats the heck out of last week’s pick of Borat. Be sure to check it out (Night at the Museum, that is - not Borat). I know we’ll be buying the DVD once price goes down.
The whole time I was watching it, though, I kept thinking that I knew the actress who played Sacagawea. Upon reviewing it this morning, I finally placed her. She’s one of the models for the Stitch ‘N Bitch books. It’s good to know that my hobbies and reading are at least somewhat more important to me than the latest celebrities.
Oh, speaking of knitting, I’m almost finished with the socks I’m making. I’ll be sure to post a picture of the finished pair. They were so much fun that I’m taking the class next week on making two socks at the same time on circulars.
Also, Wednesday I met the owner of Southwest Trading Company while hanging out for the Charity Knit session at A Good Yarn. Their products are so cool. We chatted for a while about their new tofutsies line. It uses Wool, Soy Silk, and Chitin, a product that’s made from the by products of the seafood industry. Apparently, it has some fabulous antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-stinkousness properties. Not only that, but these crab shells, etc. are NOT being dumped back into the ocean. I was totally impressed. If you knit, make sure you check out their site.
I’m not certain yet exactly how I feel about deflowering my formerly vegetarian sock collection. I have to do some serious thought about the cost/benefit ratios of chitin when compared to, say, acrylic and other polluting, factory derived fibers.
Either way, I’m loving the thoughtfulness with which these folks approach their company and its policies.
