Cinema Knitting

Went to the movies tonight. 3 nights a week I'm "off duty" from putting The Squid to sleep. The catch is that I can't be in the house. So I've been getting creative about where to go and what to do, and I suddenly remembered the movies tonight. Of course, it's saturday so everything good was sold out. So i went by what was available and starting within a half hour, and ended up with something utterly forgettable.

However, it was my first knitting in the movies experiment, and it went quite well. I cast on 128 stitches, completed 6 rows of seed stitch and 6 rows of stockinette, all without error. I'm impressed. Of course that's pretty SLOW considering it took a whole movie, but still. at least i don't have to rip it all out again because of dropping stitches, which was the outcome of my last knitting in the dark experiment.

It's on it's way to being a cardigan for The Squid. Raglan, drop shoulder, or yoke? what will look best with variegated yarn?

Love the yarn, Marnie! What kind of yarn is it? The colors are beautiful! She'll look great in it. :)

No vote on type of sweater here, though... whatever you choose will look GREAT!

I need to decide which to make for me dd when I get a chance, so no help. I am stuck choosing b/t yoke and raglan.
The yarn looks lovely and Yay at knitting (well) in the dark.
