From Susan — I Want to Thank the Academy

Filed under: Uncategorized — lv2knit @ 1:19 am

For what?  You didn’t win anything!!  Well, that’s true, but I want to thank them for hosting the awards this evening — an annual event I enjoy every year :).  Unfortunately, I saw very few of the movies because they were so grisly.  I did see Juno and was pleased Diablo Cody won the writing award.  A couple of other Twin Citians did well, too (the Coens).

This afternoon I went to the MKG Tea and had a wonderful time.  Met some new peeps and ran into some people I have not seen in AGES (15-25 years to be exact).  Wow — flashback time.  It goes to prove that knitting is a way to bring people together.  We had a 7-year old there (Anna) who has been knitting since last October — taught by her grandmother and attending her first Guild meeting.  How cool is that?


  1. I loved Juno so I’m pleased to hear it won an award. I also gave most of the other films a miss as I’m far too squeamish and way too cheap to pay to see a movie when I spend most of it hiding my eyes!!!

    And I am woefully behind on my blog reading — I missed your Lyra update! It’s looking great.

  2. ….it is very cool indeed to see someone so young learning how to knit….somehow, in the backwater of South Coastal Georgia, i didn’t even hear about some of the films that were nominated….go figure….but we watched anyway…..we loved the mermaid dress on the french actress who played Edith Piaf….very pretty….

  3. Susan- I did see “No Country for Old Men”- and it was a great movie. I love the Coen
    brothers- but it was violent. Tommy Lee Jones played a great part.
