. . . when you let a rodent forecast the weather.

That’s CodeMonkey’s “I love shoveling snow” face.  Let’s zoom in, shall we?

This is after about 24 hours of snow.  It’s still snowing.

Old Friends

June has been quite the month for reconnecting with old friends.  Teh Knitteh Kitteh was in town for a while so I got to see her a couple of times and another friend from high school, TheSwede, was touring the US with her parents and her new husband and they made a stop in Colorado. 

CodeMonkey and I met them in Boulder and we had a lovely time hiking and picnicking at Chautauqua.

WiP Wednesday (Observed)

Ok, so I know I didn’t post yesterday, but that’s because I was busy working on a WiP – in public even!

That’s NurseK turning a short row heel and me giving pointers of varying degrees of helpfulness (“Yeah, put the yarn in back now.  No, wait, that’s not right, I mean in front.  Yeah, yarn in front . . .”) while knitting something stripey.  Where in public, you ask?  At the lovely Red Rocks Amphitheater!

NurseK and I packed a picnic dinner (and our knitting) and went to see a concert and a movie under the stars (more like under the clouds which was kind of a bummer because it should have been a great night to see the Perseids).  It was still a beautiful night though, the Beatles cover band was pretty good, Across the Universe was entertaining, and I really can’t think of a more beautiful venue for a movie.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day.  CodeMonkey and I celebrated by going hiking with his parents at Roxborough Sate Park.  It was a little bit overcast, but otherwise a lovely day.

Mark Your Calendars

If you live in the Denver metro area (or don’t, but are willing to travel) and like fiber arts and living history (or just want a nice day out at a farm), mark your calendar for Sheep to Shawl at the Littleton Museum on Saturday, April 17 from 10am to 3pm.  There will be sheep shearing, wool processing, spinning, weaving, dyeing, and, of course, baby lambs.  If you come, look for me by the dye pot and say hi.  Hope to see you there!
