Here's a great thing about knitting. You can sit on the couch on a Sunday evening while your children sleep and your husband paints the bedroom, and you can have a great big pile of backlogged work to do, and you can watch the Oscars even though you've managed to see hardly any of the nominated films, and you can refrain from feeling guilty because you're not just sitting there, you're doing something. You're creating.
At least that's my excuse.
And, speaking of the Oscars, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit won best animated feature. Not only is this movie one of the Things' current favorites, but my guess is that it was the only Academy Award nominee this year to feature a knitting dog.
