Socks, Scissors and Dancing

Today we went to see Edward Scissorhands the wonderful ballet by Matthew Bourne...more info here

Utilising the original story and the amazingly haunting original score this is a very accessible entertaining emotional story. From dancing family cars to dancing topiary this is a magical adventure in cinema. If it is coming to a venue near you make an effort to see it.

The cardigan is getting heavy and attention is needed to track the increases and decreases on the sleeves. As such I have cast on a simple sock (In Arucania sock yarn - lavendar) to keep me busy - it should also double as film festival knitting..easy to put down if I need to.

I must say i keep sitting on the plane to and from Brissie at the moment thinking this is ridiculous I should be able to knit...until i see the sign at security that says it is a $10,000 (Gulp) fine for carrying these objects.

Ooh, I'm going to see it on the 12th, I can't wait.

Do they allow knitting at the opera house? I did an inch and a half at the cinema the other day, watching the newest Warren Miller.

The opera house asks you to check bags larger than A4 size..but my knitting bag was fine (and I knitted through interval in the Opera Theatre and no one said anything!).

Can't waith to here what you think.
