I watched "Fried Green Tomatoes" a few weeks ago, and that got me on a weird kick to watch all the movies I remember my mom and aunt getting all gushy about. Except the only one I could come up with was "Beaches."
Today I finished knitting the matching green baby sock for my friend's new baby girl while I watched it. I can see how people who tend to cry at stuff would cry at this, but that's not my style. Definitely a pretty good movie, though.
It's weird to think of my mom watching this movie fifteen or more years ago and not knowing that her daughter would hang out at the Hollywood Bowl and all those beaches they tried to pass off as being Atlantic City or Miami. So much has changed since then...
(The socks are Basic Baby Socks by Katherine Foster. I knit the first pair with Lion Brand Sock-Ease in Cotton Candy. The green ones I finished today are Knit Picks Stroll Kettle Dyed Sock in Spruce. Ravelry pages here and here.)
