I'm still plugging away at the baby gift in progress, and I have finished one of them. I finished it at Stitch and Bitch this morning, and while I was there I had occasion to show it to a six year old boy at the next table. He was enchanted with it, so I think it should be a hit (eventually) with its intended recipient. One of the other gifts is nearly finished, and I will start on Vivian's afghan this afternoon. Big progress in the land of baby gifts. I've also started on my Christmas gift inventory, for which it is never too soon to start.
The Big Lebowski out of one eye. I'd seen it once, and did not remember it well enough to understand why it's considered to be such a good movie. I really enjoyed it this time around, but I was distracted by the sweater Jeff Bridges was wearing. It's a Cowichan, probably authentic, and just gorgeous. Turns out you can buy a mass produced replica of this very sweater, although the replica is not nearly so nice as the real thing.
