Slowly but surely

I have been slowly but surely working on my February Lady Sweater (FBL). Why slowly? Well this week I had some stuff going on at night. Watched the Green Mile over two nights. Too long to do it one sitting. What a great movie! No I never saw it before, and was quite surprised I waited so long. Mr. Jingles really kicked butt too!
Tuesday went to the Police concert with my hubby, JB. They looked good sounded great, but the only played about an 1 1/2 hours. What's up with that? They played, left the stage for 30 seconds, came back, played a few more songs, and the house lights came up. I didn't realize it was the end of the show. Usually you get a feel for these things. Not this concert. Glad I saw them, but certainly would not go again.

Watched another movie, Stargate Continuum. I really enjoyed it. I was a huge fan of the show, Stargate SG-1, and watch the spin off Atlantis. Being the sci-fi half geek I am, I was very sad to see SG-1 cancelled. But hey, we got two movies out of it. Anyway, I thought the movie was good, and there is an extra on there about filming in the Arctic, which was very interesting and informative. Maybe there will be a third movie.
So last night I finally got to put my FBL on waste yarn for a try on. First I must preface these pictures with the fact they were taken last night about 10:00 pm. Jenny Girl was beat and in her pj's.

Let me just tell you ,that it is not easy to take pictures of yourself, especially when your are trying not to get yourself in the photo. The bottom line is I am ready to move on the lace pattern and separation of sleeves. Yea! So some progress is being made. I can usually knit while I watch TV, but with movies or certain TV shows I just can't. Such as life.

Hope you all have a very lovely weekend! Oh and happy August. Yes, it's August already. Goodness.
