I Heart Edward

Edward Cullen that is. I know some of you heart him too. How could one not? I just discovered his love this past weekend, as I was engulfed in Twilight. Shhhh!! Don't tell me too much, I'm moving on to New Moon tonight.

My other new love was the perfect compliment to reading. Mindless, easy knitting. But now I'm ready for something else. Maybe this? Or this? Or these? These would need to wait, as I'd definitely want them for me! These would be easy with my reading too. We'll see. For now, I better keep working on Dad's scarf.

Then tonight, after dinner, I have a date. With Edward. Sorry Snowboarder :)

Happy Knitting!

Zonda said...

You tease! Hehe...I just started New Moon today...shhh won't say a word ;)

Stilaholic Nartian knits said...

LOL! You gotta read the partial draft of Midnight Sun on Stephenie Meyer's site. it's Twilight from Edward's perspective and I loved what she wrote so far!

Nell said...

Oooohhhh!!!! You're gonna love New Moon too!

Scrabblequeen said...

Good job with the super close-ups! Looks like you've been keeping busy.

The Curly Knitter said...

Sorry...Edward's mine. ;)

knittingknirvana said...

Nice super-close-ups!! Check out my blog. You are starring in it!! :)

dianne said...

I think I faved or queued every one of those! They are fantastic!

Rani said...

The book is sitting here on my desk waiting for me to finish my current book (Salems Lot - started it before Halloween and it's freaking me out).

I can't wait to read it!!!!! Edward, here i come!!

read and knit? (book on tape?)

Disco said...

Yeah, share your secret. How do you read AND knit. That could be a good blogpost - with demo pics.

I liked the first link best.

I love when you find a book you can't put down. I started The Kite Runner when I got to the gym this morning. I had done 30 mins on the bike before I knew it, then 68 mins on the treadmill. Reading books is good for you on SO many levels. Happy reading.

I love reading and knitting together! Edward is quite the beau, isn't he? :)

Auntie Pudentaine said...

I think my son has that book...I may have to read it!

As for mits, you really should check out the Transitions pattern if you haven't seen it. Shibui yarns and so much fun to knit!!

Jo said...

I bought _Twilight_ on the weekend as a birthday present to myself ;)

Neuroknitter said...

Oh dear...I'm behind the times...I better check out Powell's books! I love, love, love this kind of book!

I loved all the mitts and fingerless mitts you mentioned! I'm totally inspired!

OSU and UO won this weekend! Woot!

Marisol said...

Great new projects I see in your future hehe...

As for the books they are pretty fun! Are you going to watch the movie this weekend?

cksknitter said...

What is the Rockin' Barn Sale like? Is the yarn sold really cheap?

peaknits said...

I'm such an Edward Cullen fan it's ridiculous! MY sister and I bought our movie tickets for Friday's premier already - I'm taking the day off for movie, dinner and shopping - it's a Twilight Night - I'm an addict - can't wait to hear what you think as you continue on!

Rowan said...

Back off ladies...he has been mine since the first book came out years ago. I was a fan back in the day before there were groupies!! Go team Edward! And she has been making fun of me : )

hearthead said...

If my kids or Michael Phelps hears about your newest love they will be crushed! :) I'm still alive...barely!

tapmouse said...

LOVE the Stulpen! Lots of nice choices there. I still need to finish 1 1/4 pair I started last year for my quilting teacher! Hmmm...guess I'd better get my a-- in gear since we have our big holiday party on December 9!

Hallie said...

Ooooooh!!! I just finished the entire series last week. My daughter read it and then insisted that I do too. We both loved it!! and we love Edward too. Can't wait for the next book from Stephanie.

monica said...

My eldest daughter has read the series and is reading them again. She now has her younger sister reading them too. She is anxiously awaiting the release of the movie Friday, and winning free tickets at the book store movie release party makes it all the more sweet for her.

Mindless knitting is the way to go while reading

Jean said...

The Genmaicha pattern looks fab, am I understanding this right? You knit while you read? Wow! I do manage to have the TV on, but am happy to have the tivo as sometimes I do get wrapped up in my knitting and have to go back to see what I missed. I do get some reading time in, but not as much as I would like as I have to read all day at work and my eyes do get tired at night.

weezalana said...

I've been meaning to check out that series to see what the fuss is all about!
