Mix Tape Tour/Football/Cold, in that order…

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  The Northeast is getting more snow and here is the Southeast we had rain and now wind.  And yes, another grey day.

I had a fabulous weekend with a couple of knitting friends as we met up at Fibre Space in Alexandria, VA for the Stephen and Steven Mix Tape Tour.  I have been looking forward to this for a couple of months.  As you can imagine, the spaces were limited so you had to jump on it as soon as it was announced.  I have to give props to Fibre Space and the staff as they were wonderful and helpful and running on fumes I think.

Stephen West is a real sweetheart!  His pictures on Instagram are amusing and entertaining and he is the same in person.  Steven Be was just as sweet and wonderful and a perfect team they did make.  As a dyer, I really appreciated Stephen’s approach to color, which was pretty much, go for it!!  The hours went to quickly, don’t they always!  And that was my Saturday.

Sunday was the big game.  Being from the northeast, you bet I was rooting for the Patriots.  It was a nail biter of a game and I was already feeling a cold coming on, so I pretty much chilled on the couch and knit/napped most of the day.  It’s better to just give in.

Monday, full-blown yuck inserted itself into my life.  I managed to get to the pet store, pharmacy, and grocery store and home again in time to pick up the boy from the bus stop.  I really can’t complain as we all have been healthy up to this.  I prayed that I would stay healthy until Saturday and then it didn’t matter.  That sorta back fired, but I can live with that.

I seem to have cowl-itis.  I bought yarn on our retreat for a cowl in two different weights and while at Fibre Space I bought yarn for 2 more.  One I have been lamenting over and one was pure indulgence…..100% cashmere.  I am  s t i l l knitting on hubby’s scarf and being monogamous.  That is just about killing me but I get the look every time I put it down so it’s best to just press on and finish it.  It’s really a rather handsome scarf and will look wonderful on him.

Did I tell you that the boy is very interested in clothes now?   I can’t remember.  I didn’t see him leave this morning but hubby said he looked sharp.  I can’t remember the last time he was in jeans.  Honestly I think it was his jean overalls when he was a toddler.  He always looked fabulous when I dressed him.  I did buy him some skinny jeans, as was his preference, but they are slim as well and he did look sharp getting off the bus.  So grown up for about a half hour…..sigh!

Here are the pictures from Saturday!

Hugs, Michele
