A Long Computer Hiatus

As some of you know, I have been sans laptop since almost mid-August. During this unrequested hiatus, I realized how much of my weekends were being spent reading knit blogs (which I absolutely adore), perusing Ravelry and managing my finances with Quicken, etc.

Without my laptop to keep me so engrossed on Saturday and Sunday mornings, I have gotten so much more knitting done (notice I didn't say how much more housework I accomplished). I started and finished the Moderne Log Cabin from Mason-Dixon Knitting, several baby sweaters, started and finished the Peace Shawl and have almost finished the Noro Sock Yarn Triangle shawl. I've also started the Eiffel Tower top and the Best Friend's Jacket.

And although I know how to crochet and did that craft for years, I took the Amigurumi class that Haus of Yarn was offering. How fun those little critters are to crochet. I started the Penguin in class and by this weekend I was nearly done and also worked on the baby octopus. Pictures will come next weekend.

We have season tickets to the plays at the Renaissance Center in Dickson. There are two different sets of plays, one in the master theatre upstairs and the dinner theater downstairs which is small and very quaint. This past Friday we saw Greater Tuna and I have to say it was hilarious. If that play ever comes to your town, you have to see it, I highly recommend it. In December, we get to see the followup to it, A Tuna Christmas. It's going to be great, I already know it.

OK, it's almost midnight and I have to get up in 5 hours, so I have to go to bed and try to sleep. I am on vacation next week, so I will take pictures and update the blog with knitting information.

Oh yeah, did I mention Stitches South is coming to Atlanta in April 2009??? I am soooo there, I can't wait.

Is that the Eiffel Tower top from Knitty? I have a pattern for Eiffel Tower eyelet that I've wanted to try - maybe in a sock.
