When it all changes . . .
So I'm a big geek - want to make something of it? Weekends are back to being my favorite part of the week. You know, when you're in school and the weekend is prime goof off time? Not that I'm really breaking any rules or anything but . . . I do enjoy being left alone (or at least with a group of people who know enough to talk ONLY during the commercials!) to watch my favorite shows.
Usually, I just end up Tivo-ing them and watching them late at night so what happens at Torchwood stays at Torchwood! it is a bit more adult than plain old Dr. Who. Thanks to my daughter's technical advice, I've already watched all of Season One on YouTube but the episodes have been removed now and I'll just have to bite the bullet and watch them week by week again. I've also been to the online Torchwood lab AND figured out how I can make my own "Giant Torchwood T" window cling. See, you can learn a thing or two from Starfleet University!
Now, if I can only convince my husband that watching Torchwood = Happy Ms. Daisy just like watching racing = Happy Mr. Daisy . . .
Also on the home front - strenuous knitting on the "Back to School" Vest. I even took it to the Minnesota Opera on Tuesday - yes, I CAN knit in the dark - and sat knitting in the interval while the rest of my Opera Group went out for a drink. Foolish non-knitters! Unfortunately, my camera battery is winding down right now and it's affected the color. Think purple, not burgundy.
Minnesota-wise, I'm part of the planning crew for the Minnesota Knitters' Guild's Fourth Annual Knit Out on Sunday, October 7, 2007. It's been great fun sending out press releases to newspapers and magazines but even more fund sending them out to knitting Podcasters! We are listed on the Stash and Burn Podcast website and I got a reply from Guido at It's a Purl, Man, but we actually were discussed on Sticks & String! That David Reidy - what a gentleman for helping us out AND it turns out he's a big fan of Garrison Keillor and "A Prairie Home Companion." Yea!
Just in case you were needing to know more . . .
The Minnesota Knitters' Guild's very own annual fall Knit-Out, a day of knitting outreach and just plain fun, takes place this year at Brookdale Center on Sunday Oct. 7 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Come for free knitting lessons, door prizes, hourly fashion shows, a fastest-knitter contest, and community-service knitting projects — not to mention the offerings of local yarn shops and expert knitters. This is the MKG's own event, not to be confused with the national Craft Yarn Council's winter "Knit-Out" (see Feb. 16–17, 2008). We've held it every fall since 2004!
See Here for directions to the mall. We welcome knitters of all skills!
See you 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Brookdale Center on October 7!
