A Knitterly Day

Today has been a very knitterly focused day. I met up with Knitzalot, Cora, Allison, Marisa, Erika (who came down from Orange County for the day), Jessica, and Krys over at Rebecca's in North Park for a little SnB action. I impulsively brought along Gwen and my butternut Rowan Big Wool and ended up with half the back done! I had a great time enjoyed meeting everyone - ***Ok, names and links have been updated - thanks Marisa!!*** ***I also forgot to mention yesterday that I made friends with the Rebecca's coffee house kitty - or rather, I was sitting in a warm spot and he/she decided that my lap was a pretty good place to hang out. And of course there where 6 knitter bloggers and not a camera amongst them - not even my new camera!! What the heck?***

I also came home to find that I had won a little contest over at Mistress Stash Enhancer. How fun is that? I've never won a blog contest before. Actually, I haven't won many conests or drawings at all...although, there was that book fair unicorn poster I won in the 4th grade. That was pretty sweet.

And for pure randomness, a fact that made me sad today - Depeche Mode's Violator came out 16 years ago. How did that happen? I still think of Violator as being the "new" Depeche Mode. I still remember rockin' to Policy of Truth at Dodger Stadium. I still remember the guy in front of me sitting down during Personal Jesus for some sort of one man protest statement.

And in other randomness...this is a cloud that looks like a hamburger:

Too bad the post office isn't open on Sundays, right? *L* I'm glad that you won, your going to love this yarn! That cloud really does look like a hamburger! It's a good thing you bought that camera, I think it just paid for its self!
To risk sounding like a big dork, so cool! My daughters name is Corra!

Violater came out 16 years ago? Has it been that long? Ok, I'm depressed now.
