Today is the day!

In a few hours I am off to enjoy a kid free weekend! Mom and I are calling it the first annual knitting retreat. I shall return Sunday with pictures and stories. I just can not wait!

Spamalot last night was good but a bit of a let down for me. The Broadway cast is so much stronger. The leads seemed winded for much of the show. Still pretty funny thou...

Knitting update: Have not touched the Cobblestone for a week. Really need to get at it. I washed my swatch and it set up a bit so I think the item will fit. I may cry a bit if it does not.
The first KF sock is up to the heel. I love the color but the yarn is a little bit rough. I have read that it wears great and softens up in the wash. Is this true? I think MG is getting these. I owe her a knit and she loves them so.

I joined another swap. I know I said I wouldn't but I have till 3/31/08 to get it all done. It is Sock It To Me Twice. It is really like SP with a pair of hand knit socks at the end. I am hoping to challenge myself after the holidays with a really great pair of socks. There is still time to join. It is a small bunch so it should be fun. This is the only swap I am going to do for a while. I have some great yarns in the stash so I shouldn't have to buy too much yarn. Click the link to join in. Looks like fun.
