Knitting Club/Movie Time

So I had knitting last night. I was going to finish Barry's scarf, that was for his birthday...oops only a weekish late. Well, in my knitting bag, I had my 'candy corn' yarn. I showed Sandy, my knitting teacher, and she was confident that I could finish my hat in a week. Well I finished it last night. It turned out *SO* cute, but it's a little big.
Here it is:




We also watched a really good movie. It was called Iron Jawed Angels and it was about the suffrage movement, and seriously so moving. It's not a movie topic that I would typically watch, but I was pleasantly surprised and liked it a lot. (It didn't hurt that Patrick Dempsey, my boo, was in it ;)) For those of you in West Des Moines, they're going to show it again next Thursday!

I've got to get my little monkeys ready for the Maple Grove Halloween NO TREAT Party :)

So I had never heard of that movie, but we watched it a couple weeks ago in my history class! Wasn't it great!!!! I think every woman (really anybody) in the country should have to watch it - then maybe we could get more people to actually vote!!!! Oh, and the hats pretty darn cute!
