So, back to what has been happening. Lots of fun stuff! My little sister is pregnant! This will be their third child, and I get to knit another sweater. I’ll put off knitting plans until I know if they are having a boy or girl. I have decided to not knit a blanket, because they take way too long! On top of that, my sister and my mom are coming up to visit me at the end of October! I cannot wait; it will be so good to have them up here. The sweater I knit for my brother’s baby got rave reviews from his wife (who knits). She said she could not tell if I had knit it or not! YAY!!!!
My husband and I have been spending more time together. I think we have found the balance between the necessary (and required) evil of overtime, and spending time together. We went to the State Fair and ate way too much food. I snapped a couple pictures in the Craft Building. The first two are of a set of knitted Beatle dolls. I thought I had seen them last year, but could be wrong. I included a close up of one of the dolls, but I don’t know which Beatle it is!
I loved this quilt, mainly the construction of it. I could have done with calmer colors, but really liked the idea. Sorry for the crappy picture, I hate photographing through glass.
We also saw a show at the Bandshell, Riders in the Sky.
Both my husband and I like what I can only call Cowboy Music. It really isn’t country, at least the country you and I know today. This is my grandparent’s country music, country before country was cool. These guys are excellent! They are funny, and can sing beautifully. I don’t normally like to listen to music live because sour notes really hurt my ears, I’m picky that way. But there wasn’t a sour note all night long, unless it was from the guy next to me who was singing along! I didn’t quite get the polka, but I guess that is a Minnesota thing because the crowd loved it.
There is a ton of other stuff going on, but that will have to wait until later. Hopefully later will be sooner!
