I finished the Feather and Fan Baby Blanket.

Which means that I have moved on to Cupcake Hats. Hopefully, I'll have something to report by Monday.

On another note, we go to the movies all of the time. Nearly every week. Sometimes multiple movies in the same weekend. So, it is always surprising when the Oscar nominations come out and I have so many yet to see. I guess we must see lots of low brow movies (i.e. Waiting, Wedding Crashers, 40 Year Old Virgin - but we enjoyed every low-brow moment). Rykert and I have a tradition every spring of a friendly wager on Oscar picks and NCAA Basketball tournament brackets. I've won both for the past 4 years. But there are still movies to see if I hope to win this year... My list (from the top categories).
Hustle & Flow*
Cinderella Man*
A History of Violence*
The Constant Gardener*

I guess that it's a fairly short list. Three (marked *) are available on DVD, and 2 haven't even made it this far out yet. There are a couple of others that I didn't see, but I'll focus on these.

The highly nominated movies I actually saw:
Brokeback Mountain
Walk the Line
Good Night & Good Luck
North Country

Wow, your blanket is amazing! I just learned that a very good friend is expecting and that may be the perfect pattern.
