With “Frozen” being the smash hit that took over the world, you can bet princesses will continue their popularity with girls. Without a new twist in sight, Disney’s 2015 “Cinderella,” stays true to an old story while remaining vibrant.
Here are the top 3 reasons to love the new Cinderella.
1. Lily James as Cinderella is luminous even when she isn’t in a ballgown.
And the Prince meets her well before the magical night, falling for her spirit and strength.
2. The sets and costuming are stunning.
Combined with the cinematography each scene fills the screen with lush color.
3. The repeated mantra is one we could all support.“Have courage and be kind.” While perhaps a bit overly sweet for some, it’s hard to disagree with the motherly advice escorting Cinderella through trying times.
And maybe the phrase will echo through playgrounds (replacing choruses of “let it go”).

Finished Comfort Food Cabled Mitts
Cables are simple but look fancy. The cable in Irish Girlie Knits Comfort Food Pattern (on sale through November) is super simple and perfect for a beginner. Here are steps broken down:
At this point I’ve come to the place where I C5F – which translates to “Cable 5 Front.” That just means that the next 5 stitches will be a cable and the twist will go in the front.
Step 1: Slip 2 stitches from the left-hand needle to a cable needle. Hold the stitches to the front of your knitting.
Step 2: Knit the next 3 stitches on the left-hand needle.
Step 3: Knit the 2 stitches on the cable needle.
And you’re done!
Do a little happy dance!
Please excuse my hands – I obviously need a manicure.
For more info on the pattern and a giveaway, go read my post on wedonothaveaknittingproblem.blogspot.com
