This has led me to watch the original "Karate Kid" for the first time. I was the right age to see it when it came out but I vaguely remember feeling disdainful of the film and its goofiness. I wasn't wrong--I'm pretty sure I would have hated it at the time. Now I appreciate it for all it's '80's silliness and horrific soundtrack. The clothing isn't as bad as you might expect, though.
I am using this time to finish some lingering knitting projects and take some photos. I did laundry too, the first day.
Here's some knitting pics:
|Big, white cowl. It's super warm yet not terribly practical.|
|Vest for Mom|
|A neck tie for Diego! At his request.|
|Love these--flip top mittens (for me!)|
|Plain and simple ribbed socks--very warm, will be good for next winter.|
|Tabitha says: let me sleep, already|
Grateful for: time to rest (and knit).
