The sock had quite an exciting weekend. Friday night we went to the local cable TV studio EBCTV while Dale filmed some footage for the Calvin Harlow Program, air date TBA. I sat and knitted and Dale sat and talked on camera about what we did back in April. The sock enjoyed seeing Dale on the television monitors.
Saturday night Dale’s band, Dale and the Duds, was playing at Fonzie’s. This is turning into a regular gig and every time I’ve gone I have sat there and wished I had my knitting. I always bring my knitting when they play outdoor concerts but I’ve never had the guts to bring it to a club. Well, this time I brought it along. I knew Dale wouldn’t mind and I had a blast. I only dropped a stitch once and only two people made snarky comments. Dale even brought the sock up to the microphone so I could snap a picture. I have made a most excellent discovery – knitting to rock ‘n roll makes me knit faster!
Sunday we hung out with the Nelson’s. There was knitting, bocce, beer and martinis. We laughed and ate and drank and played games until the rain came. It was a blast!
Memorial Day I woke up and found this in the perennial garden. A beautiful poppy to enhance a perfect weekend. We spent the day relaxing and memorializing. There was a service on our town common in the morning and knitting in the afternoon. The feather and fan scarf is nearly done and there’s something new on the needles. More about that tomorrow.
