last night

was so much fun at Wicked, if I could I would see it again tonight. My next theater adventure will be Blue Man Group and Tosca.

I plan to do the finishing on my cable sweater so maybe a picture of me wearing it this weekend. It has been so cold here I think I can pull out my mohair fair isle and that wonderful red alpaca sweater. I haven't been able to wear that one yet.

In other news another quarter at school is almost finshed and I am a little behind, never fear I shall catch up this weekend.

I will be traveling to Research Triangle Monday for a work meeting but I won't be there long enough for a yarn shop visit. I will be in Charlotte North Carolina at the end of March for a week. Lots of work stuff but time for sight seeing too. If anyone has been there or lives near let me know of some interesting sights and of course local knitting flavor.

a gift for me

In case you did not know my birthday is Sunday (my 29th anniversary I like to call it). How cool is this, a handwarmer mug, this was my first birthday gift. A co-worker and fellow knitter gave me this mug. I was so envious of hers and little did I know she had gotten one for me. It can go in the dishwasher and microwave. Great for heating all the tea I drink at work.

It's from clay in motion if anyone is interested, I think I'll be getting one for home too.

i spin

and I'm not talking about yarn. I have joined the craze of those crazy fitness people that spin. Used to be just regular indoor cycling but now is spinning. For those of you that have taken these insane and intense classes you all can appreciate the fact that I cannot walk up my steps tonight. I've been taking the class for a couple weeks now but I went 4 times this week, two nights back to back. Probably not the smartest thing I have done but this spinning thing is very addictive, all those endorphins I guess.

I have finished the front and back of my cable sweater that was stuffed away months ago. I hope to have the sleeves finished this weekend. Things are crazy busy at work and it finally looks like winter has arrived in Maryland. Maybe we will see some of the snow that I have been so jealous of in other blogs.
