that it takes another twilight event to get me back blogging! lol. pathetic.
as most of you know the movie came out last week. i stood in line for hours on thursday night for the midnight show with a bunch of friends. it was a lot of fun. tiring, but a lot of fun. we made sure to see it at the over 21 theater to avoid some of the teenage craziness. although a bunch of women over 21 screaming for 17 year old taylor lautner was interesting ;)
we were waiting for about 4 hours total. not too horrible for a knitter - we have ways to keep busy! above you can see the knitting i did while standing in line.
i was all prepared for the wait outside with my handknits too (although we lined up inside so i didn't get much use out of these)
the pattern for the wristwarmers was based on the fingerless mitts alice wears in the movie :)
dani at sunshine yarns is the genius behind the new moon alice yarn custom dyed to match! i bought 3 skeins and also made a slouchy hat to coordinate.
and to continue the tradition i had another party on saturday to celebrate the movie release (followed by a 2nd viewing of the movie!). my friend aimee picked me up the amazing new moon cupcake above from trophy cupcakes. i can't bring myself to eat it! another friend gave me a puzzle of edward. lol. honestly, i have bought very little twilight related items for myself - all my friends give me the goods! although i admit that i am the first one to rush out and pick up the magazines that have robert pattinson in them. i mean really. look at this guy, i mean sweater ;)
