Fun Packed Week

Wow, we were busy this week. We has something going on almost every night. We started the week on Monday with the Duran Duran concert. We had 5th row center seats in the pit and about half way through we ended up in front, directly below the stage. I am still unsure who is cuter 20+ years later, Simon or John. I'll post a pic of the concert as soon as A emails them to me and perhaps you can help me finally decide.

Tuesday I had the pleasure of being invited to Christie's house for a swap and pizza dinner. It was so nice to see everyone on a Tues night. Here is Gerri (owner of Knit Knack) modeling a sweater she purchased from Judy.

And here are Betsy, Christie and Cheryl having a laugh.

I almost nabbed this bag right out of Gerri's hands when she walked in the door carrying it. This is the exact Namaste bag that Maddie had been eyeing in the shop.

This gorgeous Stella yarn I purchased from Christie almost matches it exactly. I am not sure what I am going to knit with it, but I do have the DB Bliss book for this yarn so I have lots of possibilities.

As you can see Maddie was quite thrilled when I brought her home the bag, in fact I do believe some jumping up and down and squeals were involved.

Yes, it does bring a little flair to the rather dull outfit she was donning.

Thursday night we had dress rehearsal for the ice show which occurred on Sat. I wish I had taken pictures, but I knew that the glare of the glass around the rink would ruin the shot. It was a ton of fun though and both Maddie and little A did an excellent job. Although little A admitted he did have some stage fright, he was the cutest little Tigger. My SIL came for the second show and sat further up so I hope she will have some pictures to share which I in turn will post for all of you.

In the world of knitting I have been busy working on the Fitted Tank with this gorgeously squishy Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton. I think I am going to have to end up buying another skein though. Shoot, just what I needed, an excuse to head up to Conifer.

I also finished spinning this Merino/Tencel Blend. I Navajo plied it, which was a first for me. It did come out a little bit over-plied so I ran it back through the other direction. I have about 220 yards and no clue what to do with it. It is rather pretty.

Well with the Ice Show finally over, this week should be rather calm. I do have a lot of work to do at our old house. We are putting it on the market at the end of the month, so my hands will be filled with paint brushes rather than knitting needles for a while. And I just had a manicure Fri., so figure.

Sounds like a very fun week!

I'm glad you were able to get the Namaste bag for Maddie! She looks great with that "hair" :D
