Knitting in the dark again

I used my nifty needles tonight while we watched a really BAD MST3K movie, The Sinister Urge . Steve was happy to see me using them and said they were great for movies in his office.

I asked him, "So they don't bother you while you're watching the movie?"

"Not at all!" he replied cheerfully.

"And you think they'll work at the theater, then?"

"NO!!! You'll be kicked out!"

"But you said they didn't bother you... ."

"What are you - NUTS?! They don't bother ME! But anyone else will go crazy with those lights moving around!"

"What if we sit on the back row and..."

"Listen, the only way that would work - for you to be ANYWHERE in the theater with those things on - is if you threw a blanket over your hands."

"Steve, if I have a blanket over my hands then there is no need for 'light-up' knitting needles. What's the point?"


I don't think we've achieved what I'd hoped with these needles, but at least my family and I can watch movies together at home in the dark together with my needles doing their little light show in miniature, not because of any great feature of the needles, but because Steve and our children love me. I'll take that.

That is such a cute story. I can just picture you with your light-up needles, knitting away! :) At least, you can use them for family movie night!

LOL! I told you you'd have to do an explanation and demonstration first, and even then. . . Alyssa pointed out to me that the timing of your demonstration would be crucial, and what if people walked in late as sometimes happens? They'd be mesmerized by the flashing lights of you mini light sabers.
