Best. Valentines. Ever.

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

Looking for the perfect way to tell that special someone something special? Well, you can find a variety of Valentine’s Day cards for any LOST fan whose claimed your heart. (Some cards may contain spoilers if you haven’t watched past season 3.)

You can view the illustrator’s website here. Thanks for sharing, fellow Twitterer and LOST fan, abbybischoff!

I’ve been crocheting hats like crazy the last couple of weeks. So far, I’ve made two adult hats and 10 baby hats. There’s been a lot of concern about how many babies I’m having. Don’t worry, I’m having just one and only two of those hats are for my baby. The remaining 8 are for babies I know. And I still have a few more on a list to crochet.

The selection for boy colors in baby yarn is quite limited. There are a lot of pastels – and even “boy” colors in pastel still look quite girly. So I bought baby yarn in colors I liked, and then a couple I thought I could deal with for boys. (Turns out one is camo – I was hoping the dye would be in longer segments so it’d be more like shades of green…but it’s most definitely camo.)

I don’t know if any of the hats I made for friends’ babies will fit any of the babies, but I’m hoping they’re close. The parents can always re-gift or save it for a future baby if it’s too small, I guess! Albie helped out by modeling the hats – it sort of gives one a sense of size, too. Though I don’t have much sense of scale when it comes to babies who are 3 months old and babies who are almost a year old…

My Unanswered Questions

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

While the rest of the world watches the LOST premiere event, I’m scanning in my questions from every season. If you don’t know why we aren’t also watching, you can refresh your memory from this post.

season 1 questions season 2 questions season 3 questions

season 4 questions season 5 questions-a season 5 questions-b

We wanted to re-watch all the seasons and journal our questions, but we didn’t think of it with enough time and realized we’d have to watch 6.5 episodes a day to accomplish it before the premiere – which just wasn’t feasible. So I went to Lostpedia and read the overview for each episode and developed my questions from there and memory. Each season progressively has more questions I want answers to. Some of these may be important questions, but most have probably passed their time of importance and I am the only one who still wants to know. In any case, you can read through them. It is not at all comprehensive. I know I’m missing major questions here, but they’re mine and you can have your own. I plan to cross them off as they get answered and see what’s left at the end of the series. After the fact, I found this article, which lists many unanswered questions (probably the important ones) and would saved me a little time (and hand cramps) with my list. Oh well. Maybe the island will reward me for my sacrifice.

I also have a page for season six, which will undoubtedly raise questions as it progresses.
