Get Your Freak On A Knit Leash!

Well I'm back - I have been away from you but you can all blame Matt Hardy. He's been causing me to be distracted from important things like knitting, and writing about knitting on my blog.

But I'm back, and I have to tell you all about my new project I started last night. I got my Stress Relief Scarf out to work on it and I had real problems with my yarn overs when I first started and I hadn't done very much so I decided to rip it back and start again. This created an even worse disaster, I don't know what I did exactly but I ended up with only 12 stitches from 35 after about 10 rows.
I ripped it back once again, used some very rude words, and had to retrieve the daft white cat as he had shut himself in the bathroom for the seventh time that night. Instead of restarting the SRS, I choose instead to start the Easy Lace Scarf from last month's Get Creative. It's a drop-stitch scarf and I have been dying to make one ever since my sister made one out of some very nice mohair.

I started fiddling with the SRS about eight, by eight thirty I had started the DSS and two hours later my DSS was about the length of a DVD case. Not bad for two hours work I suppose, it's in Zhivago in the colour of Pewter. It's knitting up wonderfully and I think it may get finished some time soon.

The last time I wrote, it was movie night. Lemony Snickets turned out to be not as funny as I thought it would be. It did have Jim Carrey and Billy Connolly in it. Bit of a disappointment.
Resident Evil:Apocolypse, now this I thought would be a bit of harmless trash and had Milla Jovovich in it. I actually really enjoyed it. But then again it did have guns, explosions, zombies, evil corporations and Milla in it. I am after all an Action junkie. But it's got me thinking, how many female action stars are there? I'd say Milla is an action star, but all of the other action stars names that pop into my head are all male.
Can anybody else name any other female action stars?

I'm afraid that's it for today, I might get back to my scarf. Get it a little bit closer to finished. I've come to the conclusion that, with all my scarves, I really need to get a co-ordinating hat or hats!

Until next time,
A bona fide red head and damn proud of it.

What about Angelina Jolie as she does a good job in Tomb Raider.

There's also Jennifer Garner who is in Alias but she is sidelined for a while as she's got a bun in the oven at the moment.

That's a start for now.
