Saturday Night

So what are you up to tonight?

Plucky cowl

Yes, I'm in New Orleans, and should be having beignets and partying on Bourbon St. But I'm exhausted from work and staying out in the suburbs and I need to work tomorrow and Monday. However, the family I work with just dropped this Daiquiri off at my hotel room, so I'm not complaining :)

Can you guess what this is...

And I'm loving my new Plucky cowl!

And Notre Dame beat Washington 37-30 in overtime, so I'm pretty happy!

What are you up to this weekend?

Happy Saturday!

I'm sitting around knitting a pair of Cotty's and doing homework all weekend. Pretty boring for a teenager!

your cowl is pretty and your matching your project to the bag

we're up to hockey night...every team played today there were 15 games in the NHL today. We watched several games and ending it out on the calgary v edmonton game...looks like the flames have won since the horn just blew.

hope you have safe travels back!

I'm just back from an eveing wedding and too pooped to finish the last few rows on my Cottys. Tomorrow, out of town guests for church and lunch....and getting ready for the week ahead. Also working on a cowl of my own design.

I can't knit when I'm overly tired. It just goes really badly! I hope you get a break soon from work. Working through the weekend - even in New Orleans - has to be tough!

The cowl's looking gorgeous! Knitting with Plucky is always good for the soul.

My UW Badgers took home the Paul Bunyan axe from the U of M, so I'm happy, too. :-) The ND game was really something!

We spent last night catching up on Dr. Who. So sad to be saying good-bye to David Tennant soon!

I was sleeping as a crappy WAC team beat us--grrrrr....

I'm doing as little as possible :-) Trying to catch up on some rest and get in plenty of knitting! That cowl is beautiful. Are you following a pattern or creating your own?
