College #72, movie news, and a teeny tiny giveaway

Hello!

So first, College. I feel like I'm in the home stretch! My stitching bug is working in full force and I'm so excited. Every stitch feels like the last! So close! I mean, not really - I still have the entire row to stitch, but it just feels so close!

Before:

After:

Crazy, right? Those are the beginnings of the very last row! I'm confident that College will be finished this year, particularly if I'm resolute in working on it - which I am! Every day a little bit closer!

Next up, the much promised movie news. I'm sorry to say that I can't divulge much, but I can divulge that my part of filming has ended. It was absolutely the best time of my working life and I will likely seek out more projects in the future, particularly while steady full-time work evades me. The film is as of yet untitled, but IMDB refers to it as "Steve Jobs" and the cast includes Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, and Seth Rogen. That's pretty much all I can say about it. Not sure when the release date will be, but I will keep you all posted on it and once a trailer gets released I'll link that. It really was an absolutely incredible experience. I got to talk to some amazing people I never thought I'd get to meet. And Michael Fassbender is one of my absolute favorite actors (along with Cumberbatch and Hiddleston) so it was an honor to be working alongside him, as well as such an accomplished and amazing woman as Kate Winslet. She is truly inspiring. So that's my brief "acting" career. It's not much, but it's a start!

Finally, I have a teeny tiny giveaway for my knitting friends. I'm working on downgrading my stash. When I was learning to knit I bought some yarn that I have since found no use for. So, instead of taking up space in my things, I've decided to throw it up here as a giveaway!

They are both mystery sock yarns. The dark one on the left is 49 grams and the light one on the right is 47 grams. I'll leave this tiny giveaway open until 11:59pm PST March 31. Just leave a comment stating which one you'd like (dark, light, both) and your e-mail address. If more than one person wants a certain one then I'll draw a name randomly. Also, if you have a friend you think might be interested in free sock yarn, let them know! I'm not trying to get more followers, I'm just trying to get rid of stash and clean up a little bit. Spring cleaning I guess. And yes, I WILL ship international.

Also, in the future, once I finish a knitting project if I have a decent amount of yarn left over and I have no plan for it, I will likely do this again. Spread the yarn, right?

In completely other unrelated to anything news, I am trying to learn German. Right now I am fairly elementary ("Ich bin eine Frau" & "Eine Biene" being my most impressive sentences) but once I get a little bit better I will probably be asking for a German pen pal! Yes, that's right! Someone I can write ridiculous letters to in German who is willing to not only mail a corrected version back to me but also write me back in German to see if I can decipher and understand the letter and respond appropriately. Probably a dumb idea but there you go. I'm nowhere near there yet.

So, with that, happy stitching everyone!

College is looking amazing! It's been really fun watching this one grow, and I'm cheering you on for a finish this year.

I, too, am interested in what you did for/in this movie.

I would be interested in your leftover yarn. I would choose the lighter one, but would love to have both if no one else wants the dark one. Thanks:)

Woohoo for the final row of College!
And woohoo for the burgeoning acting career!

I have a few German followers, shall I ask if anyone wants a pen pal or just to leave comments on your blog in German?

I love College on Magic, I've not reached that far on a BAP yet, but I can see what you mean.You've now reached all four edges, so the end is definitely in sight!
I'm behind in my blogs and has missed the exciting filling news, I'll have to watch more carefully in future!

"Ich sticke gern" means "I like to stitch" in German ;-) If you want to give it a try, just let me know, I am German =)

As for College, I can imagine how excited you are about stitching the last row =) And I am very confident that you will finish it this year =)

It's so nice to see you finally get to stitch on the last row of college and hopefully that will spur you on for a finish this year. Good luck!
As for your acting career, there's nothing like starting at the top is there! Just think, isn't it amazing how one chance meeting and small conversation has opened up a whole new chapter in your life. Here's to more filming! :)

I absolutely love love love Michael Fassbender and Kate...somehow Seth Rogen sounds a bit odd in the mix of these names LOL! Can't wait to see the trailer. Lucky you xox Alicia
