I've been trying to motivate myself into writing fabulous insightful things. But I'm just not feeling it. Inspiration and self analysis is on holiday or hanging out with someone else. Tomorrow is another day, may it be fruitful.

Tonight I went to a Lights Up Knitting event.
Imagine you are sitting comfortably in a nice cinema, watching a good film, enjoying a tasty treat and knitting (or crocheting) with the cinema house lights kept on so you can see your handy work, surround by like minded individuals all doing the same.
It went a little like this ... after collecting our tickets and receiving our treat plates, we walked through the doors of the cinema and were offered a delicious chocolate brownie with cream. Then once settled in our seats, we were addressed by the event organiser who told us about up coming events and handed out some lovely spot prizes. Then the movie began and everyone got to work on their crafty projects.
Things I learnt: 1) A ball of wool will always find a way into a dark hard to reach corner when dropped. In a cinema, that is the gap below the seat in front of you. I was not the only one down on my hands in knees groping in the dark for my lost ball of wool. 2) Cup holders work well for holding balls of wool. But then, where to put your drinking vessel? 3) There is a certain air of camaraderie with a room full of people crafting and enjoying the same entertainment. It's also a little boisterous in a cinema with the lights up (though this may have had something to do with the movie. The dress maker- great film, funny and quite a bit bloodier than I imagined it would be.) but it really didn't bother me. It was a lot like watching a film with 30ish new friends who's names you do not know.
If you love to knit or crochet and you love movies check out an event near you, it was a really enjoyable experience.
Lights Up Knitting events happen once a month in Wellington (and other cities around New Zealand) and are held at the Embassy Theater with profit being donated to charity. Here's the Facebook page events are also listed on event finder.

All over the world men are beginning to grow facial hair in support of charity; some of us are getting colder and a few are getting warmer; those of us in the commonwealth are preparing to blow things up; and some of us down-under are preparing to attend too many school galas and Christmas markets.
It is also the month of my birth.
To celebrate (and so I stop procrastinating about writing)
I've decided to do
"A Post a Day"
"""" Watch This Space """"
for thought provoking commentaries, art works and an awful lot of drivel.
