Weekend Update

Thursday: Sense & Sensibility
Knit half of first Chevalier Mitten after Rachel fixed by miscabling at lunch.
Friday: Pride & Prejudice, 5-hour BBC version with Colin Firth. This is my favorite P&P.Finished the first mitten, aside from the thumb. I'm not sure if I'm happy with the way the tip looks and I think I might rip it back and just to decreases along the top chevron instead of the bizarre thing the chart calls for, especially as this is a tad too big for my even with the extra chevron removed. Also knit a bit of the Swallowtail Shawl.
Saturday: Pride & Prejudice (again) with Rachel this time, and only the first half. Then I broke with Jane and watched Vanity Fair, which is at least the same time period. Knit lace. In the evening Anne-Marie and I went to see The Other Boleyn Girl, which was quite good, and, although much earlier in time, still involved romantic intrigue and good dresses.
Sunday: I'm going to watch Persuasion, the new Masterpiece Theater version, which I have on the Tivo, and knit lace. I have two repeats to go on the main section so I hope to finish that tonight, although it's already 8:15. Where did the day go?!?
Well, part of the day went to hitting up the dregs of the Hilltop Yarn fire sale, which, as you might recall, I skillfully avoided last weekend by going skiing. I stopped in there today on my way home from the grocery store and was pleasantly surprised by how many great pattern books they had left. I got this whole lot, plus some row counters, for $45. I've been wanting some of these Rowan books, but they never go on sale, so this was a great find!
