The Secret of Roan Inish

I have a real, important knitting deadline (test knitting for a soon-to-be-published book), so I've been queuing up movies to watch and audio books to listen to while I race to get something done quickly and in a focused manner (not my usual method). Yesterday at the library I picked up this old favorite. It combines so many things that I love: Ireland, mythology, music, magic and, of course, the sea. Ah, it's a lovely story and a lovely film. I spent a cozy afternoon knitting and watching with a cup of cocoa nearby and I'll probably watch it again tomorrow. I'm such a sap. Well, and after all, I do have that deadline.

  2. oh, this is one of my all time favs as well. so simple and poignant.

    I recently watched Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day. Matt PPV'd it for me and I was skeptical the first few minutes. But after watching it late into the night I immediately watched it again most of the way through. I was so taken by it. Maybe you've already stumbled on it. If not, it would be a great knitting companion. Good luck!
