Midnight express

I am sitting up most nights doing Christmas knitting. Last night I finished this hat for my nephew in Winnipeg. It's a pattern used by knitting volunteers for soldiers in the Israeli army and is fun and easy to do. Of course if you aren't watching TV movies at the same time your stitches would be neater. 

On that subject though, what's up with Jennifer Aniston? I swear I have watched three movies of hers in the last couple of weeks and that girl hasn't cracked a smile once. How do you make so much money just from looking crabby?

Maybe she should knit. Or sew.

Cute hat! I know what you mean about knitting while watching movies. For me, the knitting keeps me from snacking.

I like the hat! It's a great basic.

A quick internet search turned up an article that claims Jennifer Anniston does knit. See the section "Celebrities on board" here: http://www.enquirer.com/editions/2003/12/09/tem_tem1a.html Perhaps she's having trouble achieving the correct gauge. ;-)

She hasn't smiled since Brad left her for Angelina! *LOL* Hope you get all of your knitting done in time!
