But last week I also got two amazing packages via the RAK in Europe group on Ravelry. The first package arrived just when I was leaving for a knitting café. It came from Stebo79 in Germany, and contained some stitch markers that she had made herself. They were made with fishing line, which I haven't seen before, and some purple pretty beads. Unfortunately, when I arrived at the knitting café and wanted to show them off, they seemed to have fallen out of my pocket, and now I can't find them! I'm so sad about this, as they were really cute, but I guess that's life :/
And this Friday I also got a package, that came from IgnorantBliss in Finland. This package also contained stitch markers that she had made herself, and these ones I've managed to keep. Aren't they lovely?
There were five of each kind, but two of the smaller, green ones are allready in use in my Echo Flower shawl. I just love this group, and I plan to send off some more packages next month.
Sometimes it really sucks to live in Sweden, so terribly far from the US where movies always premiere first. This Friday, the 29th, one of my most anticipated movies is finally coming here! I've been looking forward to Where the Wild Things Are for over a year now, and when I first saw information on it, it said that it would be showing in October 2009. Boy, were they wrong! But now it's finally coming! I love the book, and must have read it a 1000 times by now, and the trailers I've seen look very nice and well-made. I don't know if we're going to see it this coming weekend, but definitely some time next week.
Oh, and we haven't actually seen Avatar yet... Neither me nor Thomas are really happy in going to the movies, now that we have such a good TV we'd rather sit comfortable in our own living room and watch without a lot of other people to disturb us. So we've decided to wait for the DVD instead. So don't go tell me any spoilers now! There are some movies that are accepted from the view-at-home rule, that just needs to be seen on a huge screen. We've seen all of the Lord of the Rings films at the cinema, as well as all six Star Wars movies, and I've also seen all the Harry Potter films at the cinema. But what I've seen of Avatar in the trailers hasn't really impressed me (or Thomas), a lot of it looks almost like a TV-game, so we decided we don't need to see it on a big screen.
Ok, enough rambling. I have to get back to work! And just to give you a small teaser: This is my 99th post, so next time it's competition time!
