We got to go to the Pink Floyd laser show last night. I am not really into that kind of music, but it was fun. Martha was able to snag free tickets from her work and asked us if we wanted to go and hey a free ticket is a free ticket! I discovered a few things when we were there last night. 1) I can totally zone out loud music if I want to. I was able to just close my eyes and think about knitting...Okay this zoning out may have been helped a little by the fact that I have been listening to Amy's band play every Sunday for the last 5 months. It was probably also helped by the cloud of pot smoke that was hovering above the stadium! Which brings me to discovery number 2) If people smoke pot at a concert, you would think that they would invest in some better stuff as it is going to be smelled by the masses. Not that I am some kind of weed expert, or even smoke it for that matter, but geez if those who don't smoke have to be smelling all night it should at least be somewhat decent!
Yesterday was actually kind of filled with stuff to do... we went to see Team America . This movie is not for a prude or upright citizen. This movie is rated R and for good reason...there were some parts in the movie that kind of took me off gaurd but it was really freakin' funny.
A small review: if you are a Toby Kieth fan...don't see the movie... If you think that actors in hollywood are doing a great deed by protesting the war in Iraq don't see this movie...If you love South Park and think that Trey Parker is a creative genius you will love this movie... Since I think none of these... I enjoyed the movie, but am glad I paid early bird price!
So, about knitting: I saw a cute little piece of knitting at Torrid. It was cream colored shrug done in garter stitch and stockinette stitch rows. I was looking at it and was like... I can sooo make that... I grabbed it off the rack and sat down while Martha tried clothes on and started counting and deciphering what I needed to do... It had 10 rows st st and 10 rows garter st. So last night I took my measurements, made a gauge swatch and cast on. I am using some baby alpaca that I had laying around from the pi shawl that just wasn't going to happen. I am using 3 strands held together that are all different colors. It looks pretty good. I have 4 rows done, but I am hoping to get more done this weekend.
I finished Liz's scarf yesterday and I got to work a little more on my Fluted Banister. I am almost ready to turn the heel! Yay.
