Yesterday I decided to go to the public library, and not to check out children's book for a change. :-) My mom was there studying for an upcoming test and while I waited for her, I browsed through the very limited collection of crafting books. I could only find 3 on crochet, so I checked out the two that intrigued me. One is a book on one skein projects and the other is a technique book.
I then decided to look at their movie collection. It's really been so long since I've been to the public library (shame on me, as the daughter of a librarian!), that I didn't realize that you no longer had to rent the movies. I checked out what I thought was the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre. When I got home and ready to craft, relax, and watch a movie, I discovered that the Pride and Prejudice was in a mini-series so I had picked up the first movie on the rack and it ended up being part II, so that would do me no good. I had just assumed they were multiple copies of the same movie. Well, Jane Eyre it was then. And it was such a lovely choice.
I've read the book Jane Eyre quite some time ago, but I don't remember ever having the chance to watch the movie. It was good. While watching, I made a crochet dish sponge. I know I must have misinterpreted a stitch somewhere at the beginning because my sponge doesn't make that braid on the sides, but oh well. Then I started on a hat with a flower center. Both of these patterns were in my queue on Ravelry. I haven't finished the hat yet, but I'm sure to finish it today. It's an easy pattern. The only term I had to look up was "dcdec" to see how to do that. Again a very interesting design.
Now I just need to get that collection of Pride and Prejudice I suppose, so I can see that version. I've seen the Keira Knightley one many, many times. Hey, has anyone seen Bride and Prejudice? It's the Bollywood Indian version. I like that one too!
