So, I went on vacation last week…..finished a book, bought a magazine.
The magazine I bought was the Spring/Summer 2009 Vogue Knitting. Now, I have kinda shyed away from VogueKnitting since Adina Klien left (and I would still like to know why she left, because I LOVED Vogue knitting when she ran it). Trisha Malcolm, I honestly don’t like the magazine as much under her. Too much trendy for a knitting magazine. Don’t get me wrong, I like to be trendy, but I don’t like it when the patterns are so trendy that by the time you’ve finished knitting them they’re no longer in style.
However, I flipped through this issue some, and I bought it. LOVE IT. It has a bunch of things I want to knit (even though I probably won’t get to all of them, it’s nice to have the inspiration around). So, SO reccomend this issue.
The other thing I’ve been reading lately is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. I love Pride and Prejudice. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is even better! What would happen Elizabeth had to fight Zombies on her way to visit Jane at Netherfield Park? Although this book has many hilarious lines, my favorite is this one: “She remembered the lead ammunition in her pocket and offered it to him. ‘Your balls, Mr. Darcy?’ He reached out and closed her hand around them, and offered, ‘They belong to you, Miss Bennet.’ Upon this, their colour changed, and they were forced to look away from one another, lest they laugh.” So, SO good.
I also finally saw the new Star Trek movie. It was AWESOME. I LOVED it and can’t wait to see it again (also now I’m going to watch, um, ALL of the original show).
Anyways, I recommend any and all of the above.
