Henry has been begging to go see Coraline since we saw the first preview months and months ago, so when it finally came out on Friday we were first in line to get our 3-D glasses. I love Neil Gaiman and Henry loves Tim Burton (he has watched Nightmare Before Christmas about a zillion times and did fine with Corpse Bride) so I thought it would be fine. Umm...no. While the movie was a visual stunner and the art direction was amazing, the story line was simultaniously too slow and too scary for Henry. He was freaked right out by the whole thing. When we left the theater he said "I wish I hadn't made that decision to see Coraline". No nightmares yet, though, so I guess it wasn't too traumatic.
A bunch of other stuff happened, but we haven't had good pictures in a while, so let's get on with the show here.
In the middle of weekend craziness I finished up Carrie's super girly girl Monster Booty longies. She had some Cestari Super Fine Merino dyed in a custom colorway and I knit it up with a tiny beaded heart detail around the bottom of the legs.
I know I promised a pre-Valentine's stocking but it looks like it may be much smaller than I was hoping for. I am planning on doing it on Friday, so we'll see how much I can get done by then.
