We've Come a Long Way From the Talkies

It's shocking to think about how brilliantly entertaining the first motion pictures were...actually seeing people afraid of watching a silent movie of a train thinking it was actually there.

If a Picture is Worth a Thousand Words... many words is a motion picture worth?

Having the ability to create an instant movie on a pocket-size device is still somewhat miraculous to me.  I can easily invite you into my morning and let you see a part of how I start most of my days.

This morning was all about crochet for two reasons.  First, Curtis posted a photo of a finished crochet scarf using a cool-looking stitch I had never heard of call Mini Bean, so I had to teach myself this new stitch and see if I could incorporate it into a scarf myself.

Second, I met with the grand-master of crochet herself, Kathy Merrick, at lunch yesterday, and she inspired me with some of her work and thoughts on color, so I've been working on a bright little scarf.

Current Knitting/Crochet

Here's a photo of the Mini Bean Crochet scarf.

I'm loving the bright and cheery colors and how they're blending.

I've also finished 4.52 pairs of booties.

Obviously, I have a few seams to sew up and a few ends to weaving in, but these little beauties knit up quite quickly.
