It's the end of a big holiday weekend, but it's been pretty quiet around here. Which, in consideration of my last post, is not a bad thing.
I went and saw Wicked on Thanksgiving Eve. Three hours of knitting in the dark and only 1 little yarnover snag in the sock. Not bad. I seriously expected to walk out of the theater with a mess but kept knitting just to keep my hands busy.
The show was great! Terrific songs, beautiful voices, talented performers and an unexpected subplot to an old story. I would go again tomorrow if I could.
We spent most of the weekend taking it easy and visiting with family. I did find time to escape for some more Malabrigo although I'm not sure how the lace weight and I are going to ge along. I'm using the worsted for a Shifting Sands scarf. It's a great pattern that can be used with so many different types of yarn.
Oh, and of course there was turkey. (I always wanted the drumstick too.)
Now lurks those ridiculous weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas during which we attempt to resume a normal routine while the boys' enthusiasm and my stress gradually rise at proportional rates. (And this year we also get to continue to watch the college football top ten continue to unravel while we wait patiently to see if Ohio State will come our way for the Rose Bowl or to Louisiana for a National Championship game. I know... the suspense is killing you too isn't it?)
What are your favorite ways to get ready for the holidays?
