Good Advice and Some Knitting

AuntEve in the comments asked for some zombie movie recommendations and, in the spirit of Halloween sharing, I'm happy to oblige:

I recommend my two most recent faves: "Dawn of the Dead" and "28 Days Later." In Dawn, you learn useful things like how to jam a flare into the top of a propane tank and shoot it to make a huge, zombie bashing explosion.

You also learn some really helpful safety tips, like "DON'T operate a chainsaw in a moving vehicle."

In 28 Days, you learn good hygiene and infectious disease prevention, like "don't let zombie blood get in your eye." (Yes, 28 Days isn't technically a "zombie" flick because they really have a disease, but it's the same basic principles and theories.)

Remember folks - if your loved one turns into a zombie, don't hesitate to blow them away! This is not the time for getting all sentimental and teary eyed.

Oh! And how could I forget "Shaun of the Dead"? Hysterically funny movie - go watch it NOW! And it's even a little educational. You do learn that in case of a zombie invasion, going to the pub probably isn't the best choice. Going to the mall is definitely a better idea. But going to the Adirondacks - now THERE's your best bet. You heard it here first, people.

Now then, this is supposed to be a knitting blog (of sorts), so who wants to see some knitting?

Too bad, you're going to see it anyway. (Unless you close the browser window and wander off to have a cup of hot chocolate.)

Aren't these cute? Mini knitted stockings. I'm going to try to make some for the folks at work. And I'll post the pattern here at some point. It's pretty simple - just make socks, only cast on a very, very small amount of stitches!

Hey Wendy :) I love your blog. Just got it from your mom's Christmas letter. I'd love the stocking directions. I have lots of yarn remnants that would be perfect to make mini stockings for our tree next year.
