So, my brother has been working on a documentary for the past couple of years about some pretty fun people. Hobbyists with a passion that go above and beyond simple collecting and sharing. Some people might label them as geeks or losers but honestly, their just a fun loving group who enjoy their collections to the max!


My Mom, son and I decided to make the 3 hour drive to see my brother's documentary kind of on a whim. We both really wanted to go but I wasn't sure if my work load at the office would be light enough for me to break away and get down there to see it. He's had so much media interest in his production, its been a busy two weeks for him! CityTV, CBC, The Calgary Hearld, a couple of Podcasts... He's had his own mini-press-junket going which is great! It give him the chance to get the word out on his show before his big night.

Well, it's finally here. Pegwarmers will be making it's World Premiere at the 2007 Calgary International Film Festival . And make sure to check out the Film Synopsis at the film Festival Website.

Should be a really great time, with many of the cast and crew in attendance. So fire up the warp drive, Set your phasers on stun, and join us for a great night at the movies!

Monday Sept. 24, 9:15 PM
The Uptown Theatre
612 8th Ave SW
Calgary, Alberta

If you need directions to the theatre click here for a map.


What a blast it was! There must have been close to 150 people in the Theatre. Seeing my brother's friends and my own son up there on the big screen! Everyone cheered, hooted and hollered as we all shared in the fun and excitement of my brother's documentary finally on the big screen! And at the Calgary Film Festival, too.... So many people were there all suited up in their Stormtropper costumes, as was onhand Darth "Daver", (I believe them to be ) Bobafett & Jengafett, an Imperial Officer and an Ewok.

It was a long but very wonderful 25 hour trip! So glad we went. Hopefully he'll get another opportunity to have it in a theatre again. I know he's going to sell the DVD and wants to look into getting it on the small screen through an independant distributor. Cross your fingers, I know I am!

I need to get a few pictures up here, but if you look up Pegwarmers on Facebook there's some images there to go through.

Late Breaking News...

I received my Ravelry invite!!!! Woo hoo! I'm so excited, I could just spit, but that's gross.
Now I just need to set aside some time to poke around in there. Can't wait!

I'm not leaving here, obviously as I enjoy this, too.
We'll see ya there!

Anyone watch Big Brother?

I do. Love it! Here's what I finished after Sunday's POV episode...

The varigated pink is finally finished... About 20 cloths later.... :D

I See Spots!

So if you've done Abigail's Pinwheel Dishcloth, you know how addicting they are.. Well, I've got spots eyes. I did the original just as she called for a while ago, same size needles and cast on.

Then, I tried moving up to size 9 needles for the next, I like a bigger cloth, not quite so compact...

Finally, because I'd had enough of the back and forth, I did this one by knitting 3 rows, purling 3 rows making sure to follow the pattern by leaving the appropriate amounts of stitches on my needle. Plus I casted on 23 stitches instead of the 17 and ended up with this...

I'll write out the whole pattern if anyone's interested, I just don't know what to call it yet. ;D

Thanks Abigail for your inspiration!
